    Can someone explain this to me please..?

    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 CL9

    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 CL8


    Now take a look at the prices and tell me that that doesnt make sense

    why the fuck are they charging more for CL9's??? I know their only charging around £2-3 more but its still more then the CL8's which might perform a little better in benchmarks. :confused::confused:

    don't really know, i'd only do it with friends otherwise it would get boring

    cargo containers are quite good targets

    EDIT: Depending on the height you may need some minor parkour to get up there

    Well the overclocking competition was a big success. Asus and Bittech did a bang up job. The venue was great too (Gamerbase in HMV Trocadero) :)

    People seemed generally nice and my team were great, knew what they were doing (there were three of us) and in the end to be honest my input was pretty minimal. Don't mind that though. We came 3rd out of 6 teams overall (there was CPU then CPU+GPU overclocking). Here is my swag from the day - well pleased!

    [​IMG]

    It was really impressive to see those sandy bridge processors overclock. We had one of the best and got it up to around 5.2ghz semi-stable. The vcore we used was pretty massive to be honest but temps peaked at 72 degrees so not too bad.

    Lots of fun. Lunch was just awesome too, whole bunch of tasty large pizza hut pizzas :) om nom nom

    Would do it again! They said they will try and do it twice a year so keep your eyes open :) Asus presentation was pretty impressive too. Loved it!

    I remember someone selling a 'crab' in the trade section a while back.

    by 'crab' i mean a ram cooler that clips in about your ram with 2 small 25-40mm fans to keep your ram.

    I think Scam was selling one for £5 but i cant remember.

    Planking is when you just lay down somewhere like a "plank", hence the term. Its supposed to be the more original the place you do it the more hilarious it is, don't know if its just me being an aspie but i think its one of those lame sociopathic things for sycophant idiots to do.

    Millennium, that is some very nice swag! Sounds like you ended up enjoying the competition.

    Spectrum im loving the Scotty avvy! We got a nice thing going there with the Star Trek avatars. Another time we should sync up with some other theme :toast:

    I'm pretty sure corsair did those for high end kits? Doesn't matter i know what your talking about, i always assumed people tried them and just figured they never needed them because I've seen quite a few for sale.

    I think the problem was the ramsinks being to high for the crab to fit ontop and clip in. Its not just corsair who make them anyway. Ive seen a few chinese ones that are made out of clear plastic with LEDs to funk up the inside of your case

    So tempted to pick up a sandy bridge processor now. Does anyone know if ivy bridge is going to work with a p67 1155 mobo? And when it's coming out? Should I wait hmm.

    Also I can get a 2500k for £150 ish and a 2600k for £200 ish. Considering I am going to get an ivy bridge anyway (assuming it will work) maybe I should save my pennies now? hmm

    decisions decisions.

    Yea I sold it the other week. I get them in all the time and decide to sell them because they slip off of my RAM (damn Raven 2). Had 3 of them over the last few months, all sold. I had more but I gave one to my Dad and one to my little brother.

    One of them was so loose on my RAM that it wouldn't even take a pikey job. I ended up using some of the twisty cable ties to hold it in place next to my GPU, cooling the memory chips :eek:

    Anyway, evening all :)

    Give it some time I'm just getting used to Q!

    Quite tempted to get Tasha Yar for some eye candy. Maybe we can do Voyager thus excusing some 7 of 9 pron :)

    Dont change up the avatars just yet keep! Keep them a bit longer, im liking the idea of sync'd up avatars.

    Ivy Bridge is out next year, i was really surprised i mean Sandy Bridge was only out just at the start of the year! Supposed to be a bit more powerful too and a die shrink with new type of transistors.

    do any of you know how much affect the CPU-NB Link has?, i've reached a point where reducing timings is having minimal effect at benchmarks and i think its because mines currently set to 2200 where i've heard people recomend it should be twice your ram speed

    The cpu-nb link is the memory controller on the die. Its supposed to be just bellow double the speed of the ram. It helps a lot apparently.
