                                      All the setups at lmg are bad vs mine, I play on the macbook pro 13” 2017 with touchbar.
                                      Also totally worth having a logitech g pro wireless and 240hz monitor on it along with other expensive gaming peripherals.

                                        I second that x58 board supply issue. I bought one gouged 2 layers deep on ebay and soldered new traces and masked it. Or pay 250 for a working one

                                          Linus, hire me.

                                          I'm not sure what I would do, but I can tell you I would appreciate the hell out of it. Currently I live in the U.S. (Boston, Ma.), and it is so difficult to find work for anything I am interested in. I am very good with marketing. I actually had my own SEO company from 2009-2013. I am also good with putting together systems, have done it a lot on the side, mostly throwing up ads on Craigs List.

                                          Hire me, I will be useful. Hell, I will even hitch hike to where your office is. Thats a long-ass way to hitch for rides. But I would seriously do it.

                                                                                                He should be fine though... just thought it was weird to not update the PSU
