    LOL!

    Well, i haven't posted any recent picture of myself since i'm training again, having healthy meals, quit coke/soda and focusing on several parts of my body. I just started recently though and my body shape is already getting better. Since even not making any diet and eating a lot of trash food and drinking coke my body shape was not bad at all and in fact people thought i did some training.

    I may post a newer picture of myself later then...... hope i still look like a very nice saint :p

    Just received my Xbox One S controller today, the face buttons are much louder than those on my Xbox 360 controller, "A" button feels sticky and I hopes it gets better.

    I am a bit disappointed to be honest, it has a much better D-Pad though.

    I had a hard time deciding between black and white, went with the black because I think the white one will turn yellow over time.

    It's time for someone who to drive away my ignorance. Forgive me.

    Don't you already have your super overclocked AMD chip? Is there something particular about the 6700? Because even though i find 3.4Ghz to be insane, you're Strike... You have 4.7? Was it? :p

    You will understand better when i post the benchmark, but the intel has almost double the performance per core compared to the FX even at 5Ghz, 4.7 Ghz sounds like a lot, but the IPC of AMD chips leaves to be desired. Even at 4.7 Ghz i couldn't get rid completely of stutters in DOA 5, and it happens that 4.7 Ghz wasn't stable :(. My FX 8300 chip seems to like it at 4.4 Ghz the most. I had two options buying an FX 8350/8370 and trying to overclock those, leave it and take the stutter to the face and just as i was bored at work browsing for PC parts i ended up finding this i7 for the price of an 8350, i jumped on it of course, luckly i got the parts on black friday so i can resell them for the same amount i got them with no loss, so i can pay back the loan i got for the i7 and get a new mobo.

    Ah, i see.

    That performance boost you said that the i7 has? Is that cuz of hyperthreading? Is hyperthreading really as good as having an octacore?

    Or how else does it achieve close to double the performance at lower clock speeds?

    Sorry, I know jackshit about the specifications of processors.

    The performance boost is because not every GHZ is equal. 1ghz on the 6700 is faster than 1ghz on the FX8300.
    So if he overclocks the 6700 to 4ghz it'll already be faster than the 8300. Hyperthreading is good, but it depends a LOT on whether a game makes use of it or not.
    I don't think it's *as good* as having an actual octacore, but it is good to have.

    Its not because of the hyperthreading Hy-Def, and i saw this for myself with the G3258 (which is not hyper threaded), at 4.1 Ghz one core had almost double the performance of an FX cpu core overclocked at 4.6-5 Ghz, at 4.8-4.9Ghz the FX can be a beast, and in games should negate the issues of its low IPC, but i just didn't want to bother with it anymore... Its also part why i spent so much time fine tunning everything. That said, i'm not dissapointed in my FX, i'd rather have it then an i3 or a lower i5 any day, the reason i was able to do this move is because i got my hands on the i7 cheaply.
