damn. was it advertised as being 23-24? maybe there's going to be another rebate for today.
the ride with d9gkx was fun, but I don't really need it. Keep stepping down lower and lower. Got some patriot ram which uses I'm not sure what, powerchip? elpida? Looks like it's going to be cas5 from now on. Could sure use another 2gb for my heavy firefox usage patterns
My OCZ is shown as on backorder, ordered Sat evening. Is anybody else in this situation ? Any notification on a expected shipping date ? OCZ rebate time frame sucks, they only give you 2 weeks from purchase date to postmarked date on rebate letter. Thanks !
I also ordered last Friday, I checked it yesterday and it said back ordered. So I call them up and they said they might get it in stock in a week and an half, So I should have it in 2-3 weeks. Thats to long for me, so I'm canceling my order.
Hi all. FYI, I obtained 2 of these last Friday in store when they were on sale along with the IP35 motherboard deal. None would boot on my test bench having just cpu, memory, motherboard, and a video card. No it was not the power supply, as it is a 600 watt Silverstone strider. No it was not the video cards because I have 2 confirmed test ones that work. No, it wasn't the bios, as I finally got one to boot with a single stick of the memory and did a bios update (after boosting memory voltage). Yes, it WAS the fact that this is very cheap memory, and that motherboard (and many others) default to 1.8 volts on the memory. For the one board I finally got to boot with one of the sticks (I tried them all and took a few hours trying to get POST), I immediately boosted the voltage to 1.9 and it worked. So, I took them back, and got some Corsair on basically the same special. It booted fine on both of my new motherboards on the first go.
