I have the red devil ultimate 6900xt, undervolt to 1170mv and pushing 2650mhz oc. Runs at around 300w and stays under 70c gaming.

That's some sweet power usage levels and temps. I will DEFINATELY undervolt. Thank for the information and the brand/model.

I'm not so sure Elon really has the pockets to back it up. Why else would he be charging outrageous rates for certain classes of Starlink service?? ;)

And he certainly does not have the means to mount his Mars colonization plan. If he did, he'd be there by now - or at least he said so. :laughing:
Wiyosaya, my brotha! Do you know how much it cost to put 1 Sat. in orbit let alone a web of them?? I wonder how the hell he will ever break even. has to have an alternative money stream from countries all over the world, or it would have happened.

Ready for the weekend?

Go Elon! Gut every person that doesn't believe in free speech. Clean up the entire company.
What is free speech to you exactly? Many people seem to conflate free speech and freedom of speech. Is hate speech free speech? Is racism free speech? Where do you draw the line?

It's so easy to throw out lines like "I believe in free speech". Sure, everyone believes in that. But does that give you the right to yell "fire!" in a crowded theater? Does it give you the right to use social media to harass, degrade, intimidate, threaten, ridicule, etc. others?

Would be funny if Elon turns Twitter into a different kind of social media like business, tech. etc. It would surely p*ss off a lot of people and politicians since they can no longer tweet opinions and views of anyone or anything.

Things were good in the past without social media, it can be without it again.

Social media is the globalist worst nightmare.

Well, my belief is that the scientific method should be applied to everything. When a scientist has a theory, it must first be reviewed by other peer-level scientists whose job is to poke holes in it. If they're successful, then the theory cannot be published. Only when the theory is solid enough to survive objective scrutiny can it be published.

This is where "Freedom of Speech" falls flat. The scientific method exists because it's understood that false theories can be incredibly harmful. The same is true for socio-politics. Belief in something that is objectively false creates discord and can ultimately result in war. I know that it's really hard to control what people say but the media is another matter. If the media was forced to actually be "fair and balanced" (and MSNBC is just as guilty of it as Fox), then the current political divide wouldn't be what it is. Instead, the media says whatever they want to keep the masses divided while actually serving their rich corporate overlords. I've seen barefaced lies from Fox, MSNBC and CNN but the people who watch them eat this stuff up and believe it blindly. This causes so much damage to American society that it will result in a socio-political catastrophe.
Guilty as Fox? What lies along with flat out racism has Fox pushed.

Twitter draws the line where ever they see fit. So you think they don't allow hate speech from the left/democrats while banning conservatives and republican posts that don't break their made up rules? Twitter deems conservatives/republicans hate speech and inciting violence (ironic isn't it) to ban most everyone that doesn't align with their views. People are misinformed WHY Elon is doing this. Those hate speech, racist rules will still be in place, you just can't ban people based on their political opinions now.

No, I live in Canada which means that I'm exposed to all of the same media that Americans are. Truth be told, I know more about the USA than most Americans. Where I live makes no difference and is really weak strawman argument.

So, because a few people said they saw it but couldn't prove it, it must be true? Are you trying to gaslight me right now because there's no way in hell that I can take you seriously if this is what you REALLY think. And the term "foreigner", wow, you're really on a roll now aren't you? Since you don't know about the world, let me clue you in. There's a reason that Americans are stereotyped as being stupid. It's because they tend to be less educated on average compared to countries like Canada, Australia, Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, New Zealand, Japan, Finland, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

If an American says something, most people are less inclined to take them seriously than someone from one of the other countries that I listed. That means your immediate dismissal of truth from someone just because they're not from the US is completely based on emotion and that's not how intelligent people make decisions. My post has evidence that you ignored and you have offered none to back up your words. Even if you refuse to accept it, you've lost the argument.

How convenient! An excuse for your lack of evidence! The truth doesn't make excuses, only lies do.

Investigations that found nothing so no, you don't know that election fraud took place. You only want it to be true and refuse to accept that it isn't. You still have no evidence only weightless words.

Probably because when a non-biased media outlet like Reuters says that it didn't happen, I'm 100% going to believe them over OAN, Fox and "Info"wars, outlets that are notorious for lying through their teeth.

No, that is not fraud, that is error. Apparently you don't even know what fraud is. It's only fraud if you used all of them but since your name would have been on all of them, it would've been caught. You still haven't convinced me of anything except that you're not even qualified to have a serious discussion on this topic because you have no evidence and have demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that you don't even know what fraud is. Everyone who reads this exchange is going to think that you're a crackpot and shake their heads sadly (if not facepalming).

But you are not American, so stay out of American politics.

Secondly, yes people were filing their objections before the results were known in my County, so thier complaints couldn't be political. But what was odd, those complaints were ignored and that is what stirred up so many people. YOU only read National headlines and use fake news to try and tell to us here, that nothing happened...

Which is false, because many people across America KNOW FOR A FACT, this election was running wholly different than all the ones over the last 35+ years. Explain please...

News org wouldn't cover ANY election fraud, because they said it was fake news and laughed... so that Europeans and others Countries would SEE people getting angry so they could call them "election deniers".... when in Fact, none of the people creating fraud, was allowed to be questioned by police... they were protected. Which is why (since the election) nearly every State added new laws, for more polling station observers.. and for them to be from all three political parties, not just Democrats. Some polling station kicked out GOP observers and put up carboard boxes so they couldnt be watching, while sorting.

ALL OF THAT^ is illegal... yet nobody went to jail, because the Secretaries of State were protected by liberals. And now all of that has changed under new election laws....


In United States, the last Election was a shady and before America went to bed, Trump was winning, when we woke up, key states declared Biden the winner, and nobody got to see those votes counted. Many of the receipts for those votes do not exists and many other machines were erased, even though they had been subpoenaed.

You can't keep saying to Americans... that the last Presidential election was OK, and that Fraud didn't take place. It did, all over the Country and after many States investigated... they find even more. That is why those States changed their laws even more, for this Election.

2000 Mules explains how soft the fraud was... and how organized it was (per state). If you want to deny all of that from soapbox and keep repeating what the media wants you to say, you'll always be a lemming

There is no one investigation, there were thousands... and they all found fraud, just not on a organized scale... so media (& YOU) like to gaslight and hide behind the moniker that no organized or mass fraud took place.

Yet it did... State laws were not followed in many of the States in which Biden won by narrow margins. In my State, nobody was prosecuted for mailing out ballots, even though it is illegal.

It's not funny what happned^... but as Americans understood fishy stuff went on, so we have changed Election laws for a more secure election... and the fascist crying liberals don't like it... because it will make it harder for them to cheat.



ALL OF THIS would've easily been reported, if media didn't try to cover it up.... that is why an open platform like Twitter would be important. But Reuters still has not done a single report on how many Twitter accounts were suspended, over Election speak... they do not care because that is real reporting.. not superficial EU lipservice.


LASTLY, I have never seen a Reuters reporter in United States... they have no knowledge of what is going on, they are second hand reporting. You reliance on them as a single source of what is happening from London... is hilarious.

You are trying to force ruters down my throut, when they never knocked on my door and interviewed me with what I saw.... voting machine hooked to a laptop. And somehow, you think its fine, because reuters didn't report on it. Biggest strawman ever.

I'm so sick of hearing about this bellend.
I am too...

I am even more sick of listening to people who don't vote in the USA, telling Citizens, nothing took place and that nothing was wrong with the last Election.


And that is why Twitter being a neutral platform is good, because conservatives will no longer be silence and Avro will have to face facts, instead of having the media hide them behind soft reporting.

Yeah we should. Right after he incites an attack on the Capital, and has his followers threaten to, "hang Mike Pence".

Note too, that all politicians are liars and narcissists. Although, a majority aren't psychopaths, pathological liars and malignant narcissists. Donald Trump raised the bar pretty high in those categories..
I guess selling yourself to the Chinese is ok then.

Me thinks you are confused about just whom is going to have to face facts. 60+ court cases lost because of no evidence submitted by The Great Pumpkin is not the media telling you lies. The only massive fraud in the 2020 election was Trump himself.

Yes, there was fraud in the 2020 election, as anyone with at least half a brain cell knows, but there was nothing on the scale that Trump was claiming - so the logical conclusion is that Trump, himself, was the massive fraud in the 2020 election.

Wiyosaya, my brotha! Do you know how much it cost to put 1 Sat. in orbit let alone a web of them?? I wonder how the hell he will ever break even. has to have an alternative money stream from countries all over the world, or it would have happened.

Yes - and I'm on FTTH. ;) I hope you have a great weekend, too!
I watched many hours of the Freedom Truckers protest live on Youtube and how Trudeau along with his Party's state media machine worked to smear protesters in any way possible. Riot police were sent in where there was no riot, then protestors had their bank accounts frozen. I later watched a video with Trudeau saying that he admired China because its dictatorship allowed it to turn economic policy on a dime to fastrack "green" energy legislation, and thought, yeah, that fits. Trudeau is actually worse than our Jacinda Adern. My condolences to Canadians.
And those truckers were pwnd in DC by - wait for it - a bicyclist. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

But where are they now?? The "steam" has been relieved from their diesel engines. They were, IMO, like flies on :poop: and have moved on to other realms.

And you can prove this how? By listening to Faux news?

There was something wrong with the last election. Your clown lost, and you're all butthurt over it.

BTW, Trump wouldn't have won in 2016 either, were it not for a trick of the electoral college. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, which is a matter of record. Or is that just "Trump mythology spun backwards? Which is why, the great pumpkin hatched the, "send fake electors to 'stop the steal'", scheme.

Pretty much all of the 31'000+ Trump told while he was in office..

He IS a pathological liar. Even a 1st semester psychology student could tell you that.

Same goes for Biden but big media refuse to call the clown out for the entire sh*tshow since he's been in office. Pot, kettle, black, etc...

I know right? Biden caused all this inflation, or so you'd like to believe. (It's not a question of "like to" BTW, it's too ingrained in your distorted reality, to convince you otherwise).

Here's a reality, our "friend" AlaskaGuy, is butthurt because Biden shut the pipeline down. "Boo, hoo, I'm out of a job because of that p***k.! (Or words to that effect.

Biden made the gasoline prices rise...whaaaa!

The reality is, that oil companies turned in record profits, because of the oil shortage.

So, Alaska is still, (allegedly), out of a job, the oil companies are rolling in 50+ billion record profit, (their execs are more than likely mostly Republicans), you're paying $5.00 a gallon for gasoline, and it's all Biden's fault. Did I get that right?

Trump is, was, and always be, nothing but a poser. He couldn't do the job as president, he never will be able to do the job as president. He's too busy out on the golf course, lying about his handicap, the way he lies about everything else.

Now, I'm going to try to telepathically change your mind about, the election being stolen< (or as it's more commonly known, "the big lie"). Hey, if Trump can declassify top secret documents by the power of his psychotic brain, I ought to at least take a shot at it.
