STUPID QUESTIONS GENERAL
« on: August 28, 2017, 10:18:04 PM »

Asking and answering the things you probably could have Googled.

For example, I run an Nvidia GTX 980, specifically one that was designed for ease of overclocking. Would it be more cost-efficient to set up liquid cooling for that and the CPU and overclock them both, or to just buy a more powerful card?

For a GTX 980, it would probably be more cost-effective to install liquid cooling if you're looking for a performance boost to your GPU. Installing liquid cooling for both your GPU and CPU, though, might end up being more expensive. http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hydro-series-hg10-n980-gpu-liquid-cooling-bracket https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Extreme-Performance-Liquid-Cooler/dp/B019954Y2Q/ref=pd_sim_147_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=F8YZ2W8FDFS9SC11Y3D4 Here is a good setup for the 980 that would allow for a solid overclock, and it totals to ~$160. There are also cheaper cooling options on the Amazon page, if you're on a tight budget.

Why do some joints/tendons make a weird little snapping sensation when you extend them?
