    As a rule of thumb for selling hardare, i minus the 20% VAT from when i bought it, then minus off 10% of the price for each year it has been used.
    H80's are good, but H80i's are better, and pretty damn cheap. You might find it difficult to shift a H80 when everyone is getting great performance from the new series.
    I just replaced my H80 in fact :D

    Seems about right, find the cheapest and cut it by a pound or two, when i sold it to you, i matched ebuyer price and included postage hence it was only a little cheaper than them ;)
    But then again that was the newest series of OCZ psu that model had only just come out
    Still thats a good price

    Why, you won't see any difference, apart from in your wallet of course.

    Even though I like the Define Mini, I'm in "love" with the Arc Mini. I just really want a second revision. I know what will happen (SODs Law) I'll buy the Mini and they'll announce an R2.

    :banghead:

    I'm planning on getting a Sammy 840 Pro (256GB) to start with so that I can breathe some new life into my current setup and then eventually I'll grab a new mainboard (Maximus V Gene) and possibly a 3770K.

    After that I'll grab an H110 and finally some new RAM if I cba.

    Good times ahead.

    Anyone tried to RMA with Overclockers UK? Told them in specific detail what my issues are, and that i have clearly defined the issue is with the cpu, and they are saying it isnt?!
    "nah man, your mobo is the fault, the bios needs updating"
    "actually wench, it has the latest bios, and has been running the same system as mine for the last 18 months. wench"
    RMA MY GODDAMN CHIP

    Apparently they have improved, if they havent, be prepared for a length and delayed (and delayed).... (and delayed) you get the point...... soul draining experience :D

    After 6 hours of emailing, they finally decided to open an RMA case, then threatened me with a £12.50 testing fee and return postage (even though im paying for it to be sent!) if the chip isnt faulty! Then they suggested i send it to a tech support guy. I swear they are intentionally trying to insult me.

    This is why i bought an i5 3570k and msi gd65 last night, i cant be without a pc for long!
    I'll just use the 8350 for a backup system once it's been returned to me in 3 months time.

    You can only learn from your own mistakes when it comes to OcUK.

    I should have never bought a motherboard from their B-Stock area and i should have never returned it. Probably cost me like £130 in the end... and this was when i was like 16/17, not useful.

    Maximus II Formula too, amazing board :(

    Have you seen any advantages with the new setup, noticing any boost in certain games or does it compare badly. Just interested :)

    Anyone want a Gigabyte P45 Extreme to play with? It's got a lapped CPU in it which, if i remember correctly, is a Pentium/Celeron or something.

    Only issue it has is an occasional BSOD. I think it's down to the NB, but might be worth a play / salvage for copper, lol.

    It's just laying around here and i might aswell send it to someone.

    *Guessing i can post this, Sir Tatty, as i'm not asking for moneys and it's UK..
