    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Temperatures on GPU

    cant beat a pair of inner ear BOSE noise cancelling - very comfortable - even more so if you wear glasses like I do and over ear ones get quite uncomfortable after a couple of hours (and my ears get sweaty)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Seriously Impressed by PCS
