    So... I am pretty sure all DDR4 memory for sale at the moment is in fact ECC-rated and not really aimed at consumers. When the consumer-grade stuff launches I am sure it will launch at a more reasonable price.

    Well it does look like there are some non-ecc kits available(crucial ballistix sports for example) but they are absurdly expensive(roughly twice as much as DDR3), not to mention they have a CAS of 16! Yeesh.
    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    DDR2 had better CAS latencies than DDR3... just sayin.

    I always thought corsair vengence was aimed at the gaming market. Although i have no doubt they'd be happy to package whatever as gaming gear to get sales and I don't really know enough about RAM to make that judgement myself.

    True, even the ones I got in my system are CAS 6 but I didn't expect it to jump that much(9-10 is pretty normal for most DDR3 kits so I was expecting it to be 12-14). Gonna take some time to get used to seeing the CAS that high

    To be honest it's not even that hard. This was the first time I've ever done HD Tubing and also the first time I've also ever used a Heat Gun necessary for the bending.

    Except for the first bend which got singed a little bit and later on a miscalculated and thus too short cut everything else went rather smooth. Just make yourself some cardboard templates of the necessary bend angles, rounded corners and some length markings ( +safety length ) and you're very unlikely to run into any problems.

    I do though recommend to use of a Dremel or equivalent Tool to cut the Tubes and polish the ends - Speeds things up by a LOT and comes in handy in a household anyway.

    I actually wasn't even planning to use a dye inside the loop but the red, white and black color combination from the custom ROG SLI Bridge got me curious to try it out and I think it works quite well with the black Hardware and red Wires.

    Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting a Cooler Master V650S. Is it any good?

    Also, Corsair Dominator Platinum - any good? I'm thinking of buying 16 GB 1866 MHz.

    Edit: Reason I'm asking here is that it's surprisingly hard to find proper reviews of the PSU.

    Cooler master PSUs are....ehhh...just meh. Most of em aren't very good. If your looking for help with some parts, feel free to make a thread in the build/help forum and we'll hop in there and help.

    Also, that memory is generally absurdly overpriced.

    There's no reviews of that PSU because of exactly what tielknight said, they're meh. I wouldn't advise buying one. Aim for a SeaSonic, Silver Stone, or Antec. Also, I'd definitely say the same in regards to that RAM: overpriced.

    Corsair Dominator look excellent, but aside from that the RAM is no different from any other kit of 16GB 1866 MHz RAM.

    Just picked up an asus g750 laptop. 17.3" screen, [email protected](turbo to 3.5), gtx 860m 2gb, 8gb ddr3, 1tb HDD, 80211ac(? I dunno but it's supposed to be beast wifi) ping is 23ish in wow. I added a samsung 840 evo 250gig ssd. So far it seems pretty solid. I don't care for win 8.1 and aside from boot up I don't notice any real omg boost from the ssd. The cooling is amazing.

    Performance wise, WoW as my benchmark, on ultra, 60fps(vsync) everywhere. Lfr saw a couple spikes down to 40-45 for 1 sec during pull+lust. I moved it all to high, move view distance and particles to ultra and it never dips below 58-60ish.

    Overall 9/10. Would give it 10/10 but the cover for the HDD and ram broke a couple tabs when opening the cover. Not too pleased with the cheap plastic for that specific part. It doesn't affect the solid feel just wish the cover plastic was better.

  14. #13934
    Ahhh cheap plastic tabs/covers/screws/etc, always the cause of rage and frustration when they decide to snap off especially if they snap off and bury themselves further into your laptop.

    Well, it's mostly because of the looks that I want the memory, but I'll look into some other kits then, thanks!

    Also, thanks for the advice about the PSU. I won't be getting that then.

    SeaSonic or GTFO! Seriously, don't waste your money on meh products.

    Congrats to the 11 fools who made the ignore list, your ignorance knows no bounds, bravo!

    Don't forget XFX, since they are all Seasonic OEM's to begin with

    lets not be too harsh on Cooler Master, they do have some very good power supplies on the market, like the V700

    It's made by Enhance by the way, here's a review: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/C...VSM750/11.html

    For the price of a v650s you're better off with the evga 750 G2 that has a semi-passive fan mode, is fully modular and is overall much better built along with better electrical performance.

    No point getting Seasonic these days over a Super Flower unit unless its cheaper, you aren't getting a PSU from Seasonic for the price of the 750 G2 with that build quality/performance/semi-passive fan.
