    I remember someone selling a 'crab' in the trade section a while back.

    by 'crab' i mean a ram cooler that clips in about your ram with 2 small 25-40mm fans to keep your ram.

    I think Scam was selling one for £5 but i cant remember.

    Planking is when you just lay down somewhere like a "plank", hence the term. Its supposed to be the more original the place you do it the more hilarious it is, don't know if its just me being an aspie but i think its one of those lame sociopathic things for sycophant idiots to do.

    Millennium, that is some very nice swag! Sounds like you ended up enjoying the competition.

    Spectrum im loving the Scotty avvy! We got a nice thing going there with the Star Trek avatars. Another time we should sync up with some other theme :toast:

    I'm pretty sure corsair did those for high end kits? Doesn't matter i know what your talking about, i always assumed people tried them and just figured they never needed them because I've seen quite a few for sale.

    I think the problem was the ramsinks being to high for the crab to fit ontop and clip in. Its not just corsair who make them anyway. Ive seen a few chinese ones that are made out of clear plastic with LEDs to funk up the inside of your case

    So tempted to pick up a sandy bridge processor now. Does anyone know if ivy bridge is going to work with a p67 1155 mobo? And when it's coming out? Should I wait hmm.

    Also I can get a 2500k for £150 ish and a 2600k for £200 ish. Considering I am going to get an ivy bridge anyway (assuming it will work) maybe I should save my pennies now? hmm

    decisions decisions.

    Yea I sold it the other week. I get them in all the time and decide to sell them because they slip off of my RAM (damn Raven 2). Had 3 of them over the last few months, all sold. I had more but I gave one to my Dad and one to my little brother.

    One of them was so loose on my RAM that it wouldn't even take a pikey job. I ended up using some of the twisty cable ties to hold it in place next to my GPU, cooling the memory chips :eek:

    Anyway, evening all :)

    Give it some time I'm just getting used to Q!

    Dont change up the avatars just yet keep! Keep them a bit longer, im liking the idea of sync'd up avatars.

    Ivy Bridge is out next year, i was really surprised i mean Sandy Bridge was only out just at the start of the year! Supposed to be a bit more powerful too and a die shrink with new type of transistors.

    do any of you know how much affect the CPU-NB Link has?, i've reached a point where reducing timings is having minimal effect at benchmarks and i think its because mines currently set to 2200 where i've heard people recomend it should be twice your ram speed

    The cpu-nb link is the memory controller on the die. Its supposed to be just bellow double the speed of the ram. It helps a lot apparently.

    Will you lot stop it with the bait? I cant believe it was suggested to use Star Wars avatars. I already said in another post that some of them had been trolling our sync'd up avatars, the star wars avatars are a troll on our star trek avatars. Obvious troll is obvious.

    Just ignore and when someone really does an obvious troll post, use the report button to get it deleted.

    Lets go for a British institution that most of our friends across the pond will neither understand or probably appreciate, there is about 15 well known characters, as I'm an old git I will go with Uncle Arthur :toast:

    I like the idea Tatty. So we got a few choices for the next ones really -

    Red Dwarf (have the yanks heard of it?)
    Only Fools and Horses

    Anyone else got ideas?

    increasing the cpu-nb decreases the latencies of the onboard L1/L2/L3 caches and of course the RAM aswell as the increasing the bandwidth,allowing higher throughput,get what you can out of the cpu-nb it can make your computer seem sooo much faster,loading times decrease and even just opening windows and stuff,seems like a new computer...

    Only Fools! baggsy trigger :D
