    Now the kicker.

    As a normal Joe, using their system for 24/7 stuff gaming and the like you are hardly going to notice the difference between your system running 1600 and 2133. Yeah you will shave a couple of seconds of how long it takes a file to be archived or extracted, or a 15 second gain on how long a render takes - but when the task is measured in tens of minutes those kinds of quicker become rather irrelevant. For a bencher, like the idiot I am, yes it is huge. I get all of 120 extra points in one benchmark, and 600 more in Vantage11 on my CPU score. And those margins are the difference between top 30 and top 100.

    From the bragging rights and sheer hell of it, oh man it makes a difference. But that is me being brutally honest about it. Is it worth the money, that depends on what you want. For me it is, even if I was not benching I like to have cool toys. But that is just me.
    see im just starting to get REALLY into benching, ive always dont it tweeted here and there and so forth but NEVER had time or money to sit and so it right or REALLY learn the full ins and outs of it all. now i have the time.

    i have no job right now BUT thats only since my contract ended and im waiting for our lass to finalise her transfer back to the UK in july there aint no point signing another 3 years in the military to waste time and wait again.

    anyway, for now im gonna go with the cheaper option BUT later i will be going 2x 7990 anyway or 3x 7970 with watercooling since im already buying things and modding my Silverstone TJ11 in that direction for it all.

    as like you bro i love the nice toys, used to race motorbikes till i crashed 1 too many times and said enough was enough in seeing the near to be wife upset, couldnt take that no mare so now its PC TIME and over clocking, gotta waste my money some how i mean i worked for it lol. so for now i think i will get the cheap option and also if i got money over get some 1866 aswell for spares.

    oh btw i saw some corsair memory this Corsair CMZ16GX3M4X2133C11R, 4x4 GB, DDR3-2133, CL11@1.5V and its the only one on the net that says QUAD channel, now i think there all quad but wanna check and also which is better ?

    Yeah I hear you about the bikes. Had a mint 1981 Suzuki GS1100ES and boy did it break my heart to part with that baby.

    Can you not get a reasonable priced kit of GSKill ram in Switzerland? Just so nervous about the corsair stuff.

    8Pack we have the green light to go for it.

    Will be starting the Clinic on Monday if all goes well (forum server does not get abducted by aliens for example)

    Great m8 glade you got some Gskill. Its the most reliable I believe in this new platform anyway. XMP working well and easy to tune too.
