    But his great-great-granduncle/cousin twice removed etcetcetc. might have been a Brit! :eek: We should not discriminate just because he lives in some hippy country called America.

    What would be the point of having a UK club if people from all over the world are able to join? Defeats the point.

    I'm not trying to be malicious I'm just stated that I think it's a dumb move to allow others that aren't from or in the UK... in.

    I'm not going to be joining from US members club because I want to visit America.

    You have got a point there. :ohwell:

    But still, if someone understands the British culture, knows the difference between Foster and Fuller, spells colour and thinks driving on the left is the "right" way, I don't see how we can reject him/her.

    I hope I get a good chip and my TRUE is enough to overclock it well.

    Total noob to Sandbridge overclocking, its just different. Doesn't look too hard though.

    No way yours is costing you only £360 brand new. :p

    950 is pretty much the same price as i7 Sandy on most etailer. Pretty stupid I must say.
