    I'd even be happy with the 8320 tbh.

    Would any of you be interested in buying or trading for a Corsair H80? It'll be boxed as new considering ebuyer have exchanged it from an RMA.

    Not really thought about aha, but I'd probably say £70 including delivery?

    £70? I've spotted them for around £80 but I've not looked all that recently, but I'd like to think Boss would see it fair as that's pretty much how it worked out when I brought an OCZ PSU from him, which happened to be new from RMA too.

    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

    I may put the H80 & 1090T up for sale as set, I'm really wanting an 8 core even though I've always told myself to wait for more cores :laugh:

    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.

    :rockout:
