    I hate it when they do that! I haven't got very nice neighbours in my block lol (I'm in flats)

    The thing is, it's not just the barcode that's been peeled off, it's the WHOLE sticker! Someone at Royal Mail's blatantly trying to rob stuff.

    :mad:
    Fuck them!
    It is about quality man. All my friends have Z5500's and i can afford it if i really wanted them. Creative speakers have a completely different balance of sound to them, everyone likes different things, just depends what sounds good to you i guess...

    I'm in flats too but the neighbours own flash cars and boats in the harbour so i guess they are unlikely to have my odd stuff away,i am probably the one who brings the area down :laugh:
    Do you have the same postie all the time?i would collar them if it was me,so at least they know not to try stunts!
    My postie would hang on the security gates buzzer and wake my little un so i had to set him straight,and he has been alright since..

    They seem to be a bargain even at the £50 i paid a few months ago for x-540s. The only gripe is for mine they replaced the power button on the remote with a mute button, you need to power off on the subwoofer/amp. But no big deal, only takes 2 seconds anyway.

    Great sound for films and more importantly games :)

    Yea we have the same postie most of the time but I don't think it's being done by him, otherwise I guess he'd just leave it outside like has done before. Someone's gone to the trouble of peeling the whole sticker off, which just screams theif lol

    Onkyo make the best all in one speaker kits but the usual shit, they cost a lot. They are usually are like home cinema kits. Edifiers are good speakers too but are also expensive.

    Logitech Z5500s are good, i thought about getting them but fuck paying well over £200 for them. They go up and down in price apparently but i haven't seen them cheap. There are Logitech Z-906 anyway (not that i would get those).

    I dunno! some people are audiophiles i guess.

    The x540s are better than the x530s but i dont know if they are worth upgrading to.

    It was a foolish move and i can only apologise!
    Ok so long boring story short:
    I wanted 1:1 ram/fsb at my highest stable FSB (278) and i didnt have the gold for DDR3+SLi AM3 mobo,so I looked around and came across the 1200mhz sticks and weighed up DDR2/DDR3+SLi mobo and cheaped out...

    After the purchase :eek: i done my sums and came to the conclusion that 1:1 would need over 1400 mhz keeping the IMC divider at 1066,not really possible for 24/7 use even chilling the sticks...

    so £50 down the drain but it has been gnawing away at me for ages that i have been using 800 ram as 667 in order to get the 4ghz clock,i have appeased that demon and made the situation worse because that £50 would have been some shit hot ram like tatty posted!

    Oops thats still a long boring story :D

    It's actually scam's fault!
    The first day i registered here i saw his 8gb 1066 ram for sale and he said 4 of it had gone so erm yea sams fault!
