    1. Michael lives in America, where F is the official standard, and is used far more than C in everyday life. Devices such as the one Michael used as well as others (like ovens and thermostats) default to or use F exclusively.
    2. Weather forecasts are scientific, unless you want to redefine the word science while you're desperately trying to erase the fact that you're wrong.

    Feel free to continue to necrobump this every two weeks and grasp at straws though. It's very amusing.

    Hmm. Backplate is a heatsink, but it is not used for heatsinking. O_o

    I'm not impressed by how it throttles under load, until I consider that it was only $30. The way I figure things, if they made a $50 or $60 version, they could probably juuuuuuuust scrape by on the RX 480/580.

    After reading a title I was like "LOL passive RX 480", however those are good results, especially for that price. If you have some copper and aluminium (and tools and free time ofc.) you can make custom passive heatsink no problem .

    Real scientists use the Planck energy.
