    I think Fatal1ty brand is getting burned out, I am so over it, I really don't know why they use that name because I honestly have never purchased any Fatal1ty branded product, I got nothing against the guy lol, but there seems to be nothing special about these products.

    Why would an aspiring pro gamer want to use stuff branded by another gamer at a professional level?

    Part of the reason why I never owned a Fatal1ty sound card, not that I'm a gamer.

    Does anyone actually care about Fatal1ty?

    Getting kind of annoyed seeing his name everywhere when he's so insignificant IMO. :wtf:

    I agree. I hate pro gamers that are solo.. Pro teams are actually cool cause they work together and its alot harder. Fatal1ty is just an alone idiot who plays Quake 4...

    Wendel is good and all... and i dont care whether its a solo gamer's name on my sticks or a team's -- i dont want either one; I think the point is that tagging his face on sh***y sticks of memry or 8600GTS cards is not gonna make them any faster...

    now if they came out with some P**$y ram, that come with naked chicks (or large knockers) hologrammed on them - you know the kind that glows under a UV light... then they would be really targeting the "gamer" market.

    But overpriced pc 6400 ram at 5-4-4-...timings? whoop-de-de-de-do.

    Makes you wonder what the "F" should really stands for, no?

    That is true.... But, here is what people like us know.. We know that the ram doesn't mean squat if its branded by Fatal1ty.... There is other ram out there that is cheaper and better.. But, the little kids, that don't know anything, and tell the parents about it will spend the money... Because that all they say... "He's the best, that's what he uses to win..." Not being the case, but a untrained eye won't know of it...
    As for me, I'll never by his stuff... Nope, saw my hands off if you want me to grab a kit or two...

    They use the same crappy PCBs, same heatspreader design basically, as the standard modules just that the centre of the heatspreaders have space to put in any PR crap (SLI logo, CFX logo, Intel XMP logo, now this FatAssLity logo...) if there's nothing to put up, the plain modules come with the 'Z' from OCZ, which looks rates better.

    That doesn't surprise me, still think they should have used Red PCBs.
  18. Gallatin Guest

    red is the standard color for the fatal1ty lineup. but why to bother? it seems the dint change even the timings. i agree with btarunr
    they just put wherever fit for better sales.

    Only noobs with "I wanna be like Fatal1ty" temperament would choose Fatal1ty branded modules over standard ones....assuming they charge a premium for these modules.

    "These high-performance memory kits were co-developed with the expertise of Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel"

    jesus stop drop & rollin christ.
    All fatal1ty knows is how to switch out letters for numbers like an annoying 12 year old who claims to be 1337. His "expertise" lies in playing video games, not designing memory. If he was an expert at designing memory, he would be sitting at the end of some memory giant's table (such as Crucial), not sitting at the end of his fatal1ty endorsed computer table sitting on his fatal1ty endorsed ass in his fatal1ty endorsed chair. Need I go on?

    Oh boy, official memory. I guess I'd better take my unoffical memory back, even though it's been through plenty of research and development by real memory experts, not just some jackass who happens to be good at video games and decided to start making quick bucks by looking at a kit of memory, tossing it behind him and judging by the sound of it's landing wether it's "official" or not.
