This Ask GN talks about heat degradation of CPUs vs. over-volting to death, used mining GPU safety, AIDA vs. Prime for stress testing, and more.

What Do You Think of Intel’s 10nm Struggle?
01:53 – UncleCurseBurp: “#askgn-questions What do you think of Intel's struggle at 10nm and AMD moving to 7nm with TSMC? Intel's CEO had to resign over the 10nm struggle (not what was reported) and they may truly be in trouble with the constant 10nm delays in terms of AMD being able to deliver a more efficient product to the semi custom market (besides consoles) For reference, here is a link.”
Does Heat Degrade CPUs More Than Pure Voltage?
03:52 - Stephan Svendsen: “#AskGN I’ve heard different things from different sources, but does heat degrade CPU’s more than the pure voltage put into the CPU? Phrased differently, Can one safely input higher voltages into the CPU, as long as the temperature is low, or will the high voltage degrade the CPU rergardless of low temperatures?”
Are Mining GPUs Safe to Buy Used?
11:42 – Geimvera: “#askgn-questions Now that minig rigs are being chopped up and sold off are those GPUs safe to buy or should they be avoided like the plague?”
Prime95 vs. AIDA OC Testing
19:47 - Devin Dykstra: “#AskGN When I was overclocking my cpu(Ryzen 5 1600) I noticed an odd phenomenon: When I overclocked it too high Aida64 and Prime95 both crashed my system, but when I ran both stress tests at the same time it was stable. I would think that running both would put even more stress on the CPU, so what's going on here?”
Reviewing Gaming Mice Technically?
21:48 – FourthTuna: “#askgn-questions Can GN possibly review gaming mice? It is known in cybersport enthusiast community that even among top tier gaming mice sensors, button switches do differ and affect performance. Players collect data based on reviews and personal experience, there is lack of expertise about sensors, their technology and parameters.”
Good Full-Tower Cases?
24:34 - George Lambros: “Hello Steve, hope you are doing well. I know you mostly cover mid tower cases (DBP 900 and HAF X revisited are the only exceptions?) but do you plan on reviewing some full tower cases as well? I made the mistake 6 years ago to buy the 800d and now, since you educated me, I ripped the drive cage apart, put 2 140mm fans in the front and glued Silverstone Air filters on the front panel. Now I have much better temperatures, but that means all my 7 drives are in the air held by cables or sitting at the bottom of the case. I am thinking its time for me to upgrade to a nice new 2018 case, but I really want a full tower. Which one would you suggest, except the HAF since it just looks SO bad... I read reviews around but I dont really trust no one, except you on the matter. Even just your opinion by seeing a picture of a case is more valuable to me, than some "reviews" out there.”
How Often Can You Ride Downhill?
27:49 – Ghostpilot: “@Steve Burke How often are you able to make it to a bike track? Do you bring your own bike or rent? Do you have a favorite and is there one you are looking forward to visiting?”
