So you are one of the folks I read about. Kyle did this to a good number of people over the past couple of years leading a lot to believe he was burning out.

Interesting discussion thread. I am also an old-head from an overclock perspective at 35. My first graphics card was a Ti-4200, which you could amp up to match the high end Ti-4600. I even soldered on a potentiometer so I could increase the core voltage. That kind of stuff was fun and rewarding, but these days everything comes out of the box already binned to death and cranked to within a few percent of max stability. It's largely that the industry has matured and figured out how to squeeze the most money through careful product tiers, marketing, and glitz (RGB and such).

On a positive note, Linux and other freeware is pretty wicked good these days compared to back then. If you want to hack around with stuff you now have Raspberry pi's and cheap 3D printers.

Yeah, I wonder if shunt modding is still even viable, let alone soldering extra juice to the gpu.

Not gonna lie though, I was super glad when Mobo's started coming with a little bit of polish to their look over the standard green PCB. Just wish they hadn't taken that so far it actually hurts performance with their gaudy or dumb heat sinks.

Ironically, that's about when corsair started to really up their PSU game. Kyle is great and all, but compared to Johnny on PSU's at least, it's a mountain next to a mole hill imo.

Yeah I have seen him do that a few times. It was definitely "his" site and if you spoke up, if he felt like it you were done.

They are still reviewing PSUs and I can say that the forums are active too. I always go there specifically for PSU news.
