  2. Wow. I read that as “fleshlights” in the description. Freudian slip, or too much of misspent youth listening to The Brodeo?

  3. When you were testing lossless music what equipment were you using?

    The DAC/Amp/headphone choice is hugely important.

    Though I think MP3 quality is fine too.

  4. Hate to say it cause I enjoy Lloyd’s presence on the podcast, but man all that processor talk put me to sleep. No sane person who isn’t with a business would buy a 1000$ processor anyway…

    THEY TALK ABOUT PROCESSORS?? DOWNLOADING NOW.

  6. Regarding what you said about the SB-E 3930K and 3960X being the same.

    Do you mean that the 3960’s arn’t even the tad better graded(binned) chips? That its just chance that governs if a chip becomes 3930 or 3960?

    Cause that would be pretty interesting to know.

  7. I find that I’m really liking gary not being on the podcast. feels more varied and norm is a lot more talkative

    I find that I miss Gary being on the podcast.

  8. Wow. I read that as “fleshlights” in the description. Freudian slip, or too much of misspent youth listening to The Brodeo?

    If you listen to the fake outtakes section this week and imagine they actually say fleshlight every time they say flashlight, it gets way more entertaining.

    Like Norm, i also change my pillowcase on the regular, but i do it every 4 days instead of every 3 days. I wonder if he would still approve of that, or if that’s crossing the line.

    I’m really looking forward to the Jeff Green PC build feature; it’s guaranteed to hit the sweet spot on the entertaining-informative scale.

  9. alright, that’s what i thought you were saying in the podcast , and its pretty interesting info, if its actually that way the intel engineers meant it. thanks!

  10. I’m not sure what’s more irritating, the way Will pronounces the word “good” or Loyd’s overuse of the word “right”. Not a bad show this week, though, even if it’s time for Gary to come back.

  11. Woo flashlight talk. I have a Fenix LD10 and it is stupid bright on its highest settings. Probably would never have bought it had it not been for Tested’s article on LED flashlights awhile back.

  12. Loyd is pretty good on the podcast. He listens to people’s questions and his answers are direct to the point and address the question with pinpoint accuracy. Also I like that he doesn’t BS like some knowledgeable people often do, if he doesn’t know he says” I don’t know anything about that” then asks questions. It would be great to have a tech chat with him.

    Will, make him an offer he can’t refuse!

    And an article about all the light bulb stuff would be a good read.
