I wondered what they were gonna do with the fan.
Funny all these 11-13-13-35 sticks comes with fan...not just Corsair...
I thought Corsair was gonna not do 2800 MHz sticks, but DOM has a set in pics, so you might not get much outta those ones you got.
Or, you might get 3000 MHz or higher...
TBH I figured 2666 would be fine, but you of all people know my tendencies with memory
I know these aren't the best binned they offer, but I wasn't willing to settle on a 2133 kit. Not sure I want to hide these under a fan, but if they get warm enough I will use it, but I have my doubts about "needing" the fan.
If Corsair tuned the subtimings right, you might see more bandwidth outta those than the 10-12-12-31 sticks, anyway.
Apparantly getting that high with some CPUs can be an issue, too.
I got these instead:
I looked for a west coast chip this time since my luck with newegg and the NJ chips always seem to suck for me. He got a few, and stated the IMCs were all doing 2800 w/o breaking a sweat. Only thing is, this chip wasn't tested just part of the same lot. Should arrive Friday, but likely wont do the build until the beginning of the month.
They were my second choice if the Corsair's fell through
BIOSes are pretty picky right now, so you're better off waiting anyway. I also have these(same IC):
Will be interesting to see what i get, I have no idea if I can get 2800, yet. Other stuff to play with first,
The Patriots look slick on the Asus board. Figured these Dom's wouldn't look that bad on an MVE either
Yeah, especially if they get a red lightbar out. They might have them already..I am not sure..haven't talked to Corsair in a few weeks.
As to what looks good with the Dominators....
waiting on the GTX 690:
Good thing that chip set says Gigabyte on it or I would have accused you of shopping an old DFI...lol
Kinda, in pictures out there so far, but it has a far different look, and feel, in person.
How do you like the BIOS on that board? Does it play nicely with any OC?
It's better than any ASUS board I got, memory specifically. Review soon, got a few other things lined up first.
A GTX 690... did you win a Canadian lottery???
Can't wait to see the rig assembled
Nah, no lottery, selling off most of my other rig to finance the GTX 690. Going from three HD6950 GPUs to one GPU makes for a really empty-seeming case!
Anyway, still trying to build up the funds for it, I had planned months ago to start working on it now, anyway. I've been talking about doing this for MONTHS on the BF3 Teampspeak.
Which reminds me, i gotta bump my FS thread, and post some other goodies to sell!
When it comes to 2800 highly binned hynix cfr, cpu's imc is the key.
how many CPUs have you gone through in the past...6 months?
A lot...sans ES chips
Holy shit load of retail chips
Those are all retail chips - he said that doesn't include the ES chips.
Thanks t_ski. Fixed
Can you guess what's inside?
GTX 480 with its new super sexy HeatKiller WB
Is it marble it is "standing" on?
