I do alot of video encoding
not really worried about a few FPS increases in gaming
I use my computer basically 24 hours a day though
would this upgrade make sense?
should I consider a 1600X?

Ive been looking for a general purpose powered speaker
recently, I found these best buy insignia speakers that are a copy of the Klipsch
they originally sell for 200$ but you an get them on ebay for 60$ new
for the money, i have never heard any speaker better than these for under 100$
they have bluetooth so you can pair it to your laptop or iphone without a cord
it does not have digital inputs though so you wont be able to pair it to a PS4 unless you use a standard cable from your TV
that is because SONY cuts corners to make things cheap so the PS4 does not support bluetooth streaming output

it was so cold outside, my computer decided to put on some socks
this was between the actual fan and the heatsink and was completely blocking the airflow
while gaming, my keyboard was getting so hot it was literally burning my fingers, i thought man, I am doing some hard core gaming with huge FPS
but my laptop was not putting out as much hot air as it usually did
so I thought the fan went bad
after opening it up, I had to remove all the taping around the heat sink and inside was this
I believe this was mostly caused from using the computer on a bed without a hard surface
it has been pulling in the cotton residue, dust, and a little pet hair while i was visiting relatives for the holidays
I do blow can air to clean out the heatsink, but this was on the other side in the fan and nothing would help it other than physical removal
moral of the story: dont use gaming computers on a bed without protection
this was a nvidia 640M heatsink and I could see it throttle while this was happening

This is getting ridiculous
ebay allows buyers to cancel orders which is fine
but they allow people to win an auction and then refuse to pay if they dont like the price - without penalty
you can just bid on three of the same auctions at the same time and whichever you win that are higher, just cancel them
of course, ebay still charges sellers fees and give you "fee credits" for future auction listings instead of refunding your money when people cancel.
