    Didn't expect the circuit board to be so much smaller than the case; obviously I'm not used to modern supplies.

    It is indeed truly amazing that my 10 year old PC is not only working but it is fast enough to be my primary machine; this motivates the want for thermal paste that will last decades.

    Now I am confused; isn't the whole idea that the PFC makes the current a pure sine wave?

    I know this is an old thread; but it is so interesting!

    Galvanic corrosion

    Is there an issue with galvanic corrosion when using electrically conductive thermal grease, be it liquid metal or copper.

    There is the interesting observation that hot transistors have less loss, but this would not alter the conclusions.

    I'm running Windows 10 on a Core 2 and it is still very usable (the update from Windows 7 was free)

    But what does AMD do with a 16 core that has some defective cores? (not just slow running)
