    AIDA64 is the best.

    Be careful of that G19 on Ebay as in the product description it says it is for a G510S, not the same keyboard.

    Huh? I purchased from this seller, and it is a g19s. I have the keyboard! Must be something messed up on his description.

    Edit: That is because of Ebays stupid "match" what you are selling description. Half the time you cant find what you are trying to sell. No biggie, they are G19S keyboards, and mine looked brand new when I received it.

    Thanks! Looks like I'm right about where it should be then. Nice getting well above rated speeds at stock 1.350v. :)

    Update: Cooler Master H500P arrived today, and slapped it together real quick. I have to say it is a nice case, and looks sharp. It has the ability to mount your graphics card sideways, but have not done that yet. So far there is no temperature difference.

    Looks great! Congrats! :vbthumbsup:

    I have the bracket to mount the GPU vertical. It was included with the View 71 case, but I have not wanted to spend the money for the PCI-e x16 riser cable. I'm not sure what, if any, benefit there would be to doing that, and I am not sure if the temps would be better or worse. As it is now, my GPU gets blasted with a constant flow of air on the back plate from the 360mm radiator and mounting it vertically it would receive a lot less air circulation. But, I think it looks like of cool mounted vertically.

    The effects of these major software updates are unknown, though early estimates have placed the performance hit at between 5 and 30 percent, though newer Intel processors do have features that are said to reduce the slowdown. If these reports are true, Intel is in for a lot of trouble. The performance drop will depend on how much tasks depend on kernel access which is where the slowdown will occur.

    Intel messed up so bad, they have to redesign the Kernel on windows and linux to fix it! 5-30% performance drop if needs to access the Kernel. Says a lot!

    I put it here also as it may effect some bench scores potentially in the future (plus, the people here can, after a fix is released, let us know the real performance hit). But, might be interesting on how AMD stacks up on some other performance metrics, depending on use (such as VMs) after the fix!

    That's possibly bad news. I guess we will have to wait and see what the fallout actually looks like. Thankfully, I do not allow Windows Updates so I may not be affected by this hocus-pocus security baloney. My experience has been that Windows Updates can sometimes cause more harm than good. I am not convinced all of the blame rests on Intel. I think the Redmond Retards share at fair amount of the blame for their continued inappropriate influence and manipulation of what happens with hardware.

    I won't be applying their "fix" - at least not until I am satisfied that it will not degrade my performance. That's more important than security as far as I am concerned.

    And, how much of a winner would it make AMD if the primary way they get can finally get ahead in the performance race is based on an artificial metric driven by a frantic craze and childish clamor over a perceived need for a greater sense of security that imposes an artificial hit on performance? That's not a good way to get back on your feet and build a legacy based on excellent engineering. Everyone paying attention would know that it came about by the release of a screwed up Windows security patch.
