Curious to see how hot the hot thing really is. It's not like you don't play a thermal lottery with the existing i7s. I was debating upgrading to the 8700k, but if they need to be delidded like the previous gen I'll take another look at Ryzen. I get that delidding isn't that big a deal but who the hell wants to immediately void the warranty on a $400 product?

in regards to delidding, and warranty

https://forums.overclocke ... -read-this.18537093/

also delidding is only worth it if you are going to apply Liquid Metal. I have a Rockit 88 delidding / relidding kits, and so far have delidded 3 6700k's, and 4 7700k's with no issues/ damage, and under a minute. almost all of them have seen 14-20 C improvement, with the same ambient, and cooling solution. My 6700K @ 4.7ghz - 1.35v used to hit 68C in BF4, and 87C in prime 95 version 28.8, after the delid temps never go above 48-52C (depending on ambient) while playing BF4, and 67C max in Prime 95 28.8, This is with the AVX load which is much more brutal that non AVX load. All of this while on my Noctua U14s Cooler, running a 1300 rpm noctua fan at 60% fan speed.

If you live in MN, I would be happy to lend you my tools for delidding.

I'm also hoping some new monitors come out soon, 4k 34" @144hz for example. I've had this X34 Predator for almost three years now, I want something new!!

It's most likely not worth it Tusk, no games are even really pushing the envelope in graphics anyway. I just like new stuff, fanboi disease

Seems like the 2080ti has about 20% more cuda cores than the 1080ti. Not sure if that's worth it for me.

I got real lucky with the 1080tis on Nvidia's website last time around, but was curious if there was a more sure fire way to get one? Thanks. ;P

So maybe the RTX 2080ti drops tomorrow? If so, does anybody have any good tips on where to preorder one?
