From when I ever first became aware of the existence of thermal compound also known as thermal paste, I thought that simply any thermal compound would do. However I was very much mistaken.
Thermal compound is essentially the paste that has to be applied between where the processor meets the heatsink. Thermal compound is usually a whitish or greyish colour and is typically a highly viscous paste. The compound has to be applied in certain ways for certain processors. This includes graphics processors, controller chips, Intel processors and AMD processors. There are also a variety of different ways to apply the compound based on the model of processor.
So if you’re familiar with display technology, you would have heard about LCD, LED and OLED displays. I made a video a while ago detailing the key differences between each display technology and talking about which is the best in terms of image quality and which is the best value.
An interview was held with IGN on March 22 concerning Max Payne 3. Dan Houser (a writer for the GTA video game series) revealed that the Multiplayer game mode of GTA V will allow for what Rockstar calls “Crews”. Crews will be introduced in Max Payne 3 and will supposedly be featuring in future Rockstar video game titles.
Crews essentially allow clan-style groups to be created, in which you are rewarded for playing with other crew members and completing objectives together. You will also be matched with other players of equal ability, this theoretically ensures that all players will cooperate efficiently and should be able to complete the objectives that are set.
