Anonabox FAWKES Tor Router Review
As we saw with the Pro, the TOR performance is meager, but this is the design of TOR. TOR hops around the world to "wrap" your data in, hence the name The Onion Router. Because your hops and exit nodes are spread all over the world, your traffic is bouncing around all over the place and this will cause latency. TOR is not designed to stream media over or torrent your favorite files; in fact TOR recommends not using it for torrent downloading, which can be illegal anyway and we do not condone that. What TOR is good for is sending your private emails, downloading confidential documents, etc., that you do not want public eyes viewing. Take, for instance, if you want to check your bank account and send some emails at Starbucks while sipping a latte, then the Anonabox FAWKES with TOR will allow you to do so without having to worry about me in the corner with a packet sniffer and decrypting your logins.

Intel Core i3-7350K Kaby Lake Processor Review
When Intel released their 7th Generation Core “Kaby Lake” processors there was a rather interesting processor in the bunch, it was the Core i3-7350K. This was the first time Intel released a Core i3 series processor that featured HyperThreading technology as well as being a fully unlocked K-SKU. If you remember back in 2014 Intel released the Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition, which was fully unlocked, but did not feature HyperThreading. With the Core i3-7350K you get a dual-core, 4-thread processor running at 4.20 GHz, with a TDP of only 60W. You get all of this for a modest $168. Could this be the entry level enthusiast part people have been looking for? Read on as we find out!

Rockit Cool Rockit 88 Processor Delidding Tool
The act of delidding goes back quite some time to when chip makers started putting the CPU die on top of the processor substrate (or package). Before then the die was under the substrate on the same side as the data pins and fairly well protected. By flipping the chip it allowed them more control over the size of the die and improved cooling. However, it also exposed the die damage due to incorrect heatsink mounting. There were several ways for chip makers to address this issue and the most common was by adding a heatspreader.

Early processors like the cartridge style Pentium II benefited from a delidding process because of the thermal compound used to connect the CPU to the cartridge. Replacing it was rather simple but required you to disassemble the cartridge. Modern CPUs like the Pentium 4 and Althon64 both came with copper based heatspreaders to protect the die and instead of using thermal paste they directly connected the die to the heatspreader using a soldering tekniq. It was so effective that delidding was no longer needed.
