    It will have had a good two years. At least it got more use than 2011, which had 3 processors released in its lifetime, of which only one was really worth getting (discounting the xeon server stuff which, as far as I know, is incompatible with the "normal" 2011 motherboards and cpus).

    Currently using 2.53GB RAM out of my 8GB :/

    I think I have managed to get above 4GB once, when I had WoW, D3 and MoP beta open while running something like 15 or 20 firefox tabs.

    I was using 8.75GB used the other day when I had about 42 Chrome tabs open, Rift, and then other miscellaneous small programs, as well, Skype, Steam, etc.

    When I open up VMWare Workstation 8.0.2 though and fire up Linux or Windows XP, or both for that matter, the memory used skyrockets.

    Icky flashy Thermaltake bag. ;p

    I'm still using some messenger bag I got at the ripe age of like 16. So it's about 7 years old and it murders my shoulder when I use it.

    Good messenger bag, goooooood.

    You can carry it in 3-4 different ways. ^^

    I don't care how you can carry it or how many ways.

    I don't like it. =|

    2011 was aimed at 1% market share. I think it's been living up to expectations.
    And considering that Ivy Bridge-E is back on the intel plans, and like DeltrusDisc said, i7 3970X is due - I'd say it's not dead yet.

    1155 seems to last a shorter time than 1156 did. - Especially if you consider the B2 debacle making 1156 a better choice than 1155 for a few months longer than intended.

    So I realized I had had my Windows XP Pro 32 bit installation with 20GB of preallocated space on my SSD and not on a HDD/E-HDD, so now I am moving that over to my external and going to delete it from my SSD.

    Whoever said 128GB SSDs were small is sorely mistaken. The amount of stuff I have jam packed on it with 5+GB free is insane!

    btw we're going pretty off-topic, maybe we should make a thread dedicated to debating which chassis is best for what. :P
    A slimmer rad is going to have the same temperatures as a thicker rad if you're running low-RPM fans. My brother's got Scythe GTs running 800RPM.

    Mind you, there's an option in UEFI to set how long it's going to wait after actually completing. On the first vid of Z77 Sabertooth it's set to 1 sec. Here it's 3 sec...

    That was like the first thing I did after booting successfully, those things are bloody loud.

    edit: if you have no probwims, you have no need for half the town to hear your computer beep every time you start it up.
