    "Poor" is the tech press coverage of new CPUs in the last 1-2 years, especially when it comes to the OC section of their reviews and tests. While the manufacturing process of new silicon gets smaller, the voltage these clowns run to get big numbers and draw attention to their reviews is slowly creeping up. While I know what to make of 1.4+V under air/H2O, the avg user doesn't. Not understanding that short term "bench stable" in this case leads to electromigration in the long run.

    That 's why I used the term "rumors" ... .

    Might be the case. I also picked up rumors regarding poor overclocks on the latest 8700K batches.

    Regarding RNG in Games, in general

    That's ok. The problem starts to rear it's ugly head in E-sports ... . Furthermore RNG is the most frustrating for those players who are potential E-sports material even outside of it. Among other things it's probably one of the main reasons of the exodus of top players since 2013/14.

    +/-25% on aim, pen and damage is a problem. At least the later two should be reduced dramatically.
  7. btw - Threadripper 2 is also rumored to be released in the next few months.

    That whole stun mechanic shouln't be in the game to begin with.

    At first I thought - yeah an other moron from the interwebs and to some degree I still think that (wtf is he posting a problem like this in a "benchmark forum")

      I bought Bitdefender in a package and installed it on everything, mostly because it means less frequent maintenance/reinstall on my mother's PC. I am really proud of the fact that she is familiar with the internet, and learned the basics of English at old age just to understand stuff. But in the end she is too naive to the harsh reality of the internet. For that purpose the Bitdefender worked out really well, since with its autpilot mode deals with most of the stuff without interaction and it only gives her a message that what she did was a bad idea. :)

      I 'd also install µBlock Origin and something like Ghostery and NoScript (takes a little time to set that up and explain) - ofc depending on the content of your security suite.

      jeez, thats some high level shit. 

      I've had one instance of malware I couldn't remove. hid itself in the RAM I think. (thats where my AV said it was) no AV I tried could remove it. ended up reinstalling windows and that got rid of it. 

  10. ~300 MHz more won't make a big difference
