Are they not making any more of this memory? I have a set but don't really have the budget to build a whole computer, I got these on sale some months back. I was going to sell it on Craigslist but now I might hold onto it I guess.
I got a notification last week that it came back in stock, but was sold out again as soon as i checked.

Here's where I'm at on my new build. Just got my next paycheck, so 3770k and SSD getting ordered Tuesday. I'll be using my current psu and gpu for a little while until I order a 670 and modular power supply.

Crappy low light cell phone picture.



What CPU coolers that you like? Preferably something that is pretty aesthetically pleasing (sticking with the black theme). Nothing with nasty LED's.

something like this might looks pretty cool in there:

i think they are massive though, and might have led's....but they're subtle ones, not the flashy glowing fan kind.

It almost looks as if you could remove the top plastic piece too. Might even be able to get rid of the LED's. It might look really cool then.

I don't really even need to be doing mine. My sister's been wanting an xbox, or something to play games on, and she plays a lot of minecraft on my parents laptop. So I figured it was time she get something better to play on, so I'm doing a new build and giving her my old PC.

Is it a very decent cooler? This is only my second build, and in my first build I just ran the stock cooler, so I don't have much experience with different coolers.

Only "downside" is that they're not black, or at least the heatsink itself isn't, the fan is. Not going to win any beauty pageants, but I don't think I've seen my 2500k get much over 50*C under load. I'm sure you could do something to the top to make it black if it bothered you that much.

I'm sad I'm selling my computer. It would take too long to make it to Hawaii, so I need a laptop in the mean time.

Oh yeah, I'm moving to Hawaii.

Damn you beat me before my ninja edit. I misread it and thought he already bought the 670. The black and yellow color scheme is pretty cool, you don't see it very often.

I know I'm late but IIRC the reason why that RAM sells out so fast is because they are easy to overclock. A lot of the reviews say that at least

Well funny thing is, I was going to be taking off the badges and either painting the yellow, or just leaving the badges off. But the more I look in the case (its moreless just fancy looking room decor at the moment), the more I'm liking the yellow.

I'm torn though. I feel like it looks really badass when the badges are removed.



Colin, message me about that 680.

So, $1400 ish for a new laptop. Solely for gaming.

What should I get? I was really liking what MSI has to offer.

Curious, where do you really use a gaming laptop? Not meant to be a "desktop>laptop" argument, just genuinely curious.

During my upcoming move to Hawaii while I'll have no way to carry a desktop around.

Make no mistake, I do NOT prefer laptops, but it takes 3+ months to get my stuff and I plan on playing games between now and then

I was looking at these two in particular. Open box and refurb do not bother me, these are just two in the price range that I like the specs of.

The MSI is $1399 on amazon and the iBuyPower is $1399 on newegg. The iBuyPower laptop is getting my vote for having 4 ram slots and a 4gb GT675m.
