    That'll be interesting,

    I'm looking at just dropping this and going for a Define Mini or something.

    Is it bizarre though?

    I literally grew up on F. It would be very hard to get used to something else.

    I know 32 is water-freezing aka snow, 0 is death, 100 is stupid heat, 60s and 70s are normal tolerable weather.

    Celsius was the first form I learned about when starting to monitor computer temps... I began learning that up to 60s is okay, but still rather hot, but 90+ is no bueno.

    @Methanar, not going to jinx myself, but Lake Michigan is pretty good about defending my area from tornados fully forming, but a couple counties down south or west of here and yes, there likely will be some.

    Granted the heat isn't really going to go away on Friday, so somehow I don't foresee a tornado, those are usually associated with massive temperature changes, not going from 95 to 90. :P

    Sunday is supposed to be 75 though! ^_^
    The imperial system really confuses me. Why cant it just be normal, dd/mm/yy makes so much more sense than mm/dd/yy, and the distance measurements particularly screw with me, just make it all nice and linear lol. As for celsius it's easy, temps in the minus are fucking cold, 0-10 is cold, 10-20 is tolerable, 20-30 is the normal, 30-40 is fucking hot, 50-60 is ouchy very burning.

    Water freeze at 0, water boil at 100. It's not as logical as Kelvin, but it's logical in a different way. And one I'm brought up with.

    1 km is 1000 meters, 1 meter is 1000 mm (or obv 100 cm). Easy.

    1 metric ton is 1000 kg, 1 kg is 1000 grams.

    1 computer is 1000 awesome, 1 awesome is 1000 well-spent hours.

    It's especially funny when I decide to put on an American news channel, start hearing about "and temperatures were nice and warm today, hitting 85 degrees" and I'm like "DAFUK?!" before realizing it's in fahrenheit :P

    ooh i've come across a 3960x with two minor issues that might be sold for a very nice price. (it can actually do 5Ghz stable aswell )
    guess i better sit tight and see where the bidding ends, might end up cheaper than the mobo that i would need for it

    Meanwhile in Finland +40-60 is considered cold, +60-80 a bit chilly and +80-120 about right.

    At this rate I'll end up downloading the modded 780 bios for additional voltage.

    It's maxed at @ 1.2v, 1202mhz core / 3500mhz memory and the damn thing is till chilling at ~69c tops, nowhere near the 80c thermal limit.

    Also CPU isn't even crossing 65c @ 4.7ghz, H100 fans plugged into a low-noise resistor lol.

    God I love winter. I love it love it love it.

    Well, to be realistic, the sound of the words 'June', 'July' and 'August' have a warm sound to them. Where as 'December' and 'January' sound cold. It would be frigging weird with reversed seasons!

    Though I will give you one thing, having New Year's Day in the summer is pretty badass.

    Also...

    30-40: Considered "hot" by most of North America, normal summer temperatures. Some areas it's normal humidity levels.
    20-30: Generally the comfortable range.
    10-20: Brisk to comfortable, lower range usually requires a sweater or jacket.
    0-10: Cool, cold. Really awful range for rain.
    -10-0: Cold. Uncomfortable due to below freezing point of water, which our bodies are mostly composed of (that's why C makes far more sense for weather, IMO)
    -20--10: Bitter cold, but tolerable. Average winter temperature for the north eastern seaboard. Considered Not bad in central North America.
    -30--20: Really cold, but average for central NA in the winter.
    -39--30: Dangerously cold, severe wind chill levels in most of NA. Probably just considered fucking cold in the central.
    -40: Celcius and Fahrenheit crossover.


    Oh, for Sweden:

    -25: Normal.
    +25: "Hot".
    Yup, -30-20. Here here. lol

    And I agree C makes tons more sense.

    So do meters.

    And basically everything about the metric system.

    Arbitrary numbers like 32 for water freezing and 212 for boiling.

    -.-

    Like we all said on Facebook.

    Any issues with a CPU not working properly are not worth it. The CPU working properly is probably more important than the motherboard.

    I guess if you want BSODs every day then okay.

    Probably the same reason why an Atlanta based channel (Peachtree) is part of basic cable in some Maritime cities in Canada and CBC West isn't.

    Minor issues? You don't really want to have cpu issues lol. I still remember my old Q9550 c1 performing equally to a e7400 dual core >.< I've read somewhere c1 having cache issues but cpu issues doesn't necessarly mean it's going to crash.

    it was a mem lane issue (1 stick not being detected/working) and no warranty.
    too bad the price went too high too fast. guess i'll have to some for my skylake extreme instead

    How good Gigabyte Z87 motherboards are? Would you guys recommend the UD4H/UD5H/G1 Sniper over something like, a Maximus Hero from ASUS for example?

    1) Make a thread
    2) Why would there be anything wrong with them?
    3) All of my two desktop motherboards I still have are Gigabyte
    4) Better colourschemes these days than ASUS
    5) Nothing wrong with this generation of MSI either
    6) Motherboard performance between different models has never been less relevant; Motherboards today are just about the features. Take the ones with the most I/O or features otherwise.

  20. #4580
    Thanks, tetris!

    Reason I'm asking is because I had a bad experience with one of their motherboards that got burned (model was UD3R I believe, was X58 socket), so I wanted to know how reliable their Z87 ones are. Will be making a new build for a friend on Monday. Thanks again and next time I'll create a thread instead!
