Re: If you are getting Kaby Lake, go ahead & Delid it

Wonder if  you could solder A IHS on yourself with a little torch or bake it on with some very low temp solder filings and a preheated block of steel to sit on the IHS to make good contact and get a wee bit of overflow over the edges?

Re: Best low profile video cards available (August 2016)

They are long overdue, I am just impatient that every manufacturer has and can make a good one for 2 years now but all we get is oversized cards and no love for the slim tower people that want to game but just cannot find a slim LP card that will do 1080p great :)

You have a ton of options, If you go with the separate speakers I highly recommend a center channel so when the voices are coming out of a face on the screen it is coming from right in front of you like it should, voices off to the side or in background will come out of the side speakers etc. The ch...

If someone already said this my bad since i did not go through every post. But I do not think you need a peltier cooler at all unless you plan on keeping it on for very long periods of time...I imagine once the handle gets too hot to hold you will turn it off anyways:)

I would fix it if it does take a dump but I think I would rather just get a more feature rich z77 motherboard before I try fixing what I have. It is an has been a great motherboard. I am just going to keep my fingers crossed that it keeps on trucking.
