You know you benched too much when...

Recommended Posts

when you have enough junk on your bed to build at least 6 computers but you still sleep in the border (instead doing a clean-up :D )

 

edit: happend to me only when i was single :P

 

I am married and its still like this, though in my defense my wife is not at home for a couple of weeks, :D

When you open all windows and turn on AC (in your benching room) in the middle of February winter...Your neighbor think you're crazy

...when you go out on Friday night to the mall, but to search for a bigger stainless steel thermos so you waste less LN2, after you gave it enough thought you realized you would save more LN2 if you opened the top and poured it into a larger container that would stay colder, thus less dewar exposure.

 

...When you regularly go to an art store to find a specific brand of eraser, and the lady asks "are you an artist?" and you say hell no. And she doesn't give you a weird look.

 

...When your benching rig is 10x more expensive and better than your main rig, yet you spend 1/5 the time on it.

...when you go on a LAN party like that... no games but 3Dmark suite...

ROG is built for gamers Chris ? isn't it ? :D

 

 

Agree with you Sin0822, but that's when you don't have no box for your main rig imo ;)

 

 

 

 

...when you spend more time on HW's sites than Pr0n's ^^

You bench too much when you switch your thermal paste to one that is 8x more expensive and consider the 3% MHz boost totally totally worth it.

I know how you feel, I have 2315 messages in my ebay outbox and only 327 in the inbox :D

 

You bench too much when you NEED a copy-paste set of questions to send to Ebay sellers.

 

 

 

Hi. Please can you tell me the batch code for this CPU? It's the bottom line of numbers on the surface of the chip.

 

Thanks!

Hi. Can you tell me if this card is a revision A2 or A3? The info is available through GPU-Z software, if you have the card installed.

 

Thanks!

dammit I've failed this one. :D

 

 

When you know all CPUs that are installed in the computers at work. And their steppings. And you definitely have checked their overclocking potential months ago.

 

When you're angry that there aren't any nasty D9 chips in these computers as well.

I just realized a thing that might fit while packing my bags for my two-week vacation...

 

...when you think "how did this bag get so spacious all of a sudden?" "Because there's no hardware in it."
