emperor's new clothes anyone?

i dont want to put a damper on things - it's an interesting review for sure, but please, stay away from too much audiophile nonsense - it kind of makes a reader doubt the scientific objectivity of the rest of the site. as someone who makes records, goes to london's better mastering houses lots and i...

By the way: what's up with the program dev? Why doesn't he react to repeated e-mailing? as with most people who get more email than they can reply to, my usual reaction to repeated emailing begins with fuck and ends with off. maybe he's the same? no luck with speedfan on my d875pbz either, but i pe...

intel desktop control center / 875pbz

how can i read cpu temp in linux?
