    There are legal things you can do with a torrent though...

    For example, the Blizzard Updater uses a torrent client.
    Intel i5 2500K (4.5 GHz) | Asus Z77 Sabertooth | 8GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1600MHz | Gigabyte Windforcex3 HD 7950 | Crucial M4 128GB | Crucial M550 256GB | Asus Xonar DGX | Samson SR 850 | Zalman ZM-Mic1 | Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB | Noctua NH-U12P SE2 | Fractal Design Arc Midi | Corsair HX650

    do you know anyone with a torrent machine just for game updates?
    yes it is allowed in some rare cases but im pretty sure the majority of people use torrents for their dose of movies/series/cracked games. (thus being copyright breaking yadayada , we all know how the song plays from here on)

    Correct, do not discuss, suggest or condone pirating anything.

    But you can talk about torrents and P2P all you like. Torrent news, using torrents to download stuff legally (yes there is such a thing :P), etc.

    Just don't link anything torrent-related because mods can't go through each and every link making sure it's safe/legal...even if it's a link to a perfectly legal piece of data, links to PirateBay or the sorts will most likely get infracted.

    This type of thinking is exactly what got megaupload removed. Just because people abuse it, doesn't mean the service is illegal.
    If you want to genuinly send a legitemate file to someone right now, without your own FTP or dropbox, you're going to have a bad time. Which is totally rediculous considering how much money we pour into our internet infracstructure.

    Would linking to a torrent news site be okay or no?

    Probably spot-on.

    The problem isn't torrenting itself, however enforcing it becomes difficult when the grey-areas are too muddied to hold a consistent level. It might sound horrible from a user-stand point, but the best bet is probably prohibiting all of it. Just like with Emulators. Discussing the concept is fine. Telling someone to/providing links/troubleshooting someone with this is a definite no-no.

    Is this really worth doing? Like is the gain anything noticeable?

    I just get about half my connection speed when other computers are up in the house, which gives me about 300+ ms in WoW and makes Planetside 2 unplayable. And it's not greedy roommate, if another computer is just open with like 3 tabs open, my connection speed just tanks

    lapping is just a few degrees tops, delidding and replacing crappy intel TIM was by far the most rewarding in temp drop.
    looking at likely max temps of mid 70's under prime load and average of mid 60's. (where it was running into thermal limit with my NH-D14 with 2 cores reaching 105 degrees but barely not getting deactivated, ofc with same settings)

    Yes if done right, hard part is being patient enough to not get sloppy near the end.

    Interesting, my temps at the moment are about mid-60s at high load and rougly about 30-35 at idle so theoretically this could bring my temps down closer to ambient temp and maybe mid-high 50s at full load couldn't it? might be worth doing.

    Few degrees being 1-2 degrees tops. How do you reason it worth doing if you're already that low? >.>
