Corsair is recalling one lot (fewer than 1%) of its Platinum closed-loop liquid coolers due to a known leak. This issue isn't widespread, fortunately, but owners of affected coolers should respond to the recall.

TSMC is working on risk production of its 5nm process and already has some customer designs being made on the new node. More news to follow.

Sorry about the capture resolution. Seems something went screwy in processing to YT. We capture screenshots for news at 8K, so it's not a resolution issue. We'll check the final/processed videos more closely next time.

Intel 56 core cpu running at 400mhz turbo at 500W

wE hAvE gOoD cPuS tOo!!
the one you dont see
intel is just trying to justify the coming prices for there 10nm chips when amd zen 2 will be aiming at 5ghz turbo with there 7nm fab along with chiplet design first pci-e gen4 chipset and 16 cores for mainstream chipset aswell for cheeper than intels coming after with only 10 cores in mainstream for next gen.
Let me guess about amd, a good batch of new cpu’s and a gpu set that wont be as good as nvidia’s current offerings
people are just letting their anti-china feeling affect their opinions of epic this is so bullshit.

7:12 "64-core 112-thread flagship" RIP Math skillz. just kidding, Steve. there's a lot of effort put into these news vids and i look forward to each one that's uploaded

$1600 for an overpriced mobo and a CPU guaranteed run a 100MHz overclock for an extra $210? If your 9900K can't hit 5.1GHz then you are doing something wrong.

How about this instead:
Buy a $200 Gigabyte Z390 board that will have more than enough voltage regulation for your 9900K. Buy two 9900Ks and keep the one with the best overclock. Put the extra $420 you just saved toward a good power supply to further improve your overclock, or maybe a 2TB NVMe SSD. Or maybe resell that other 9900K on eBay with the stable overclock numbers and mark it up a few bucks, then put the $500 for the CPU together with the $420 you saved toward an RTX 2080? The possibilities are endless!

How is Intel starting to get serious? The cost of that 56 core CPU is eye-watering.

If you believe that a company that has a 40% stake in another company doesn't have some level of control, I have a bridge to sell you along with some ocean front property outside Yuma Arizona.... >.>

People are still buying corsair products? OMEGALUL!
Spyware or not, if you hold 40% of a company, you DO HAVE power over their decisions. If you think otherwise, you don't know about business economics.
It will never happen, but the best way to put everyone's mind at ease is to make the launcher open source, that's one of the reasons why open source is the future, unfortunately you can't trust anyone.

Intel with a 56-core CPU? Based on past pricing, they will probably want my first-born for it. I'll stay with AMD for CPUs thanks.

My "Handle Most Things" Tool HW News - Corsair AIO Recall, 5nm Process, 3 months ago   12:27

The latest in my "hacker gear" video series, this video showcases a little-seen kit of gear that tends to always live in the bottom of my suitcase whenever I'm traveling somewhere for work or for conferences. It's true that I keep my luggage very light if I'm bouncing off somewhere fun for a week, but if I'm on business travel for a conference (or even just visiting family, where there's a chance I'll have to repair or adjust something) then this kit can handle any basic problems that come up in the lock world.

Whether those tasks are entry-related or repair-related, chances are this kit has my needs covered. Think of it as a super micro lightweight version of the assortment of tools and gear that are in my company's field cases when we head out to penetration and covert entry target sites.

Like before, I'll do my best to put links in the description to most of the items you see here. These are just the tools that I think personally work well for *me* but they might not exactly be what's best for you. Take any inspiration you want, discard anything you don't like, and get past whatever obstacles come your way!
