    But there is no need for stickers when you have your own proprietary screws.

    A proprietary screw doesn't buy you anything besides more expensive screws because you can't leverage the whole world using those screws to drive price down.
    Because a driver will be in market as soon as the device is, or most of the times, the driver already exists because the proprietary screw is just an obscure screw head..

    Like torx was more or less unknown to the masses 10 years ago it was widely used in the auto industry for much longer than that and was invented in 1967, security by obscurity is always a dumb move..

    I approve of the use of them in things that could kill you like power supplies so people don't just open them without some effort.

    The best decision I have ever made in 2020, build my own pc. Games at 144 hz and 1440p with temps not hitting 70c with an air cooler.

    If you want an easy time a desktop is the way to go, just too tempting for me to just keep adding bits though :p

    You still have room for that in your P870.. 9900KS, 2080S, 4000Mhz ram etc :p

    For my uses the really easy to cool 6 core at 5Ghz does very well, the SLI 1080s are fun. I'm over 3Ghz for ram at least for now :)

    We'll see what happens with the 3xxx gen cards.

    I'm all for RTX30x0, but after seeing how desktop cards will be using a new 12 pin power connector, I'm not so optimistic about compatibility with P7/P8/X170. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    Depends on the clock vs voltage curve, might just get really hungry at the higher Mhz.
