    Hey everyone :D I just got a new apartment (brooklyn baby!), and I just happened to finish my new rig.

    Waterblock problem on Asus Rampage Extreme

    I've been using the Apogee GTZ with the Xigmatek crossbow backplate (to avoid that dumb placed chip). Now I'm using the Heatkiller 3.0 (Amazing block btw), which has a really nice mounting system, but doesn't work with the crossbow backplate. I really want to avoid the dremel, so any ideas of a...

    Ultra-performing $600 Elpida ICs for $245?!

    It's already known that Corsair's upcoming i7 Dominator RAM has boasted frequencies of 2000 MHZ while keeping 7-8-7-20 timings.

    Dual vs Tri Channel Query

    I have an Asus Rampage Extreme, its an X48 chipset and supports DDR3 memory in dual-channel configuration.

    How are my Mem. numbers look?

    I think the latency is a bit high. Kind of at a loss between aiming for Cas 6 1600Mhz or Cas 8 2000 Mhz. Your thoughts? My TIM is currently in DIRE need of change so I can't OC too far, (20*C jumps between idle and load) *Edit: Oh my God please excuse my butchering of the english language in...
