    If your talking to me Scam im actually on Sandybridge if you look at my specs lol.

    Eitherway once i get a new cooler im giving my old one away to my mate, the original xiggy SD1283. It cooled my old X4 pretty well but its not to great on the 2500k its more just better than stock. Good thing about 1155 is you can mount in any direction.

    Got a 2500k and ASrock board at the end of November (its in my specs). It's quite nice, ive only got it at 4ghz but its incredibly low voltage. Stable as fuck, with Phenom II overclocking it was very sensitive till you got it rock stable. Pretty much with the new hardware as soon as i could get it to stay stable after desktop it was fine although i have to use LLC.

    I bought a htc sensation today for £80, it has a broken digitizer. It works fine though and its running at 1.5ghz. its a damn nice phone, dual core, 220gpu, and a big 4.3"/540x960 screen.

    Its a trap!!!

    ---

    Speaking of traps....I had a really really really random fucked up dream last night. And its somewhat similar to the 'airport' scene in MW2 if any of you have played the single player (that same scene subsequently got all sales of the game banned in Russia- even though Activision provided an option to opt out of that particular part of the game)

    I dreamt i was standing in a shopping mall full of people. queueing up to buy a new 7970 or 7950... there were people everywhere as it was a busy weekend. All of a sudden, people start screaming and running for their lives for no reason, then the people who were running away were being gunned down by what I can only describe as 2 or 3 people that looked like the 'Borg' or Terminator hip firing these red lasers at people from what appeared to be a 7970 held like a gun with the same kind of swagger as Terminator when he walks around with a heavy mini gun.

    There were dead bodies and people screaming in pain everywhere. and i was on my knees cowering behind a water fountain among some dead bodies screaming "you have your 7970s!! what the fuck more do you want?! STOP KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE!!! THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING!!" at these 'borg' while they were still gunning people down, I eventually woke up when they had me backed up against the wall pointing their 7970s at me after they had killed everyone else.

    Judgement day is coming :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    either that or its a omen that i should not purchase a 79x0 but wait until I see what Nvidia has to offer

    My local bank branch was robbed today, its right around the corner from my house. Apparently they ran up the street next to my house. I heard the police helicopter at the time it happened but i never looked out or heard any commotion.

    No doubt they have been seen, theres plenty of CCTV on main street and the Mc Donalds.

    I'm kinda pissed, it's taken Corsair the best part of a month to acknowledge they received my faulty RAM, didn't help I got the Mrs to send it and she lost the receipt. On a plus note cause they said they hadn't received it weeks after it was sent I had already written it off until they emailed me the other day to tell me my replacement was on it's way :confused: :toast:

    RMA's suck, I expected more from corsair though, but i suppose it depends what youre sending in for RMA. Smaller items like RAM get 'misplaced'

    I need to RMA a friends old PSU so lets see how long they take with that.
