    We locked in 3rd against some very tough competition, this was mainly a GPU Sprint, so it was interesting to see what cards did best...

    Seems the 1660 ti is starting to show it's colors, the card ran very well....

    Just figured an FYI

    Posting this, I knowingly risk getting banned again.

    I was known by many here years back as phelan1777.

    Movieman, aka Dave and I talked many times over PM and via phone. Though I never met the man in person, I once asked his advice as I was dealing with a relationship issue. His advice which I remember many years later. 'You can go out for a burger one, or stay home and have steak every night'.

    He, in many ways was a father figure to many here being much younger at the time, less experienced in overclocking, computers, and life in general.

    I resigned up here to see if I could get a hold of him only to find out he passed away.

    I did not have much of a father figure nor did I seek such in him, but mentor of sorts he became.

    He always had a sense of humor in our conversations yet a conviction that caught my ADD attention.

    While I was not as close as many here, to him, he left a lasting impression on me and my perspective on life and relationships (friends and otherwise)

    Xtremesystems was home for me for a long time, (2006/7ish to 2009/2010?) taught me much of what I know about cooling, overclocking, computers and net community. None knew me outside of my posts here aside from Dave, but when I was active here I was dealing with personal issues that I did know realize were due to factors before I joined the site. (Car accident.)

    When I would act stupid, Dave would PM and try to guide me or offer advice. I didn't realize at the time, he meant well and I guess maybe saw something in me that I was unable to then. I can say similar things about only a few that I have met in my life to this point. (40 something ish old)

    If admin boot me again, (yes, I know forum policy), I understand. I just had to say my piece on a great man.
