Because we've had our resident Candy expert watching the market for imbalances in the supply chain.

However, I do still have my first set of RAM, 2x512MB Corsair XMS3200RE for my FX-51 biggrin.gif and 24/7/365 it st

. . .

Sincerely,
A Disappointed 10-year Fan :/
PS: Please, read this in the tone that I wrote it in before you decide to flame me... That tone would be one of, well, disappointment combined with a bit of hope, I suppose

There is so much wrong in this post I don't know where to begin.

First off, lifetime warranty on any computer component is pretty stupid. The component will never last that long. It also doesn't make sense especially when we are pushing silicon to it's very limits. I have seen this problem develop after working with different testing and development labs (I understand the business). I loved the DDR1 and DDR2 ram I used to have because they were like tanks. Yes you could overclock most of them to the high heavens and they would work. The problem now is how we are pushing RAM and other architectures. They are not as robust to high overclocking. It largely depends on the integrity of the silicon. The low profile RAM from Samsung does so well based on how it is made but I am not going to get into that.

What I can say is that Corsair is doing very well in terms of providing for its consumers. I was able to visit their facility last week to look at the engineering work put into their products on a daily basis. There is a reason why their top performance memory costs soo much. They have an individual in house testing each memory module for various parameters. These parts are hand picked and binned to meet the performance specs which then go into the expensive ram. This is a time consuming and costly endevour which justifies the price.

I would also say that Corsair is putting an excellent effort in providing excellent products. They are innovating. Trying new things and learning from past mistakes from a design or manufacturing standpoint. Their testing and development facilities are very good, not the best I have worked at but very well thought out. There is a reason why their speakers sound so well; the studio for testing and development is impressive. The attention to detail at this company surprised me.

As for cases, corsair is very particular and anal about the quality. I was able to see the upcoming case from Corsair. They take pride in the attention to detail as I mentioned above. Don't PM me asking for details since I won't say anything (hello NDA). What I will say is that this case has everything I was looking for for the past 3ish years; it is well designed and thought out. I will definitely be replacing my 800D. Innovative? Sure. Many of the new aspects make it an innovative step for me.

You have to understand how the industry is changing and why. I still believe that Corsair provides excellent quality and support for it's customers. Corsair and EVGA are 2 of the best companies I have come across. I am just trying to put another perspective on this. I remember when I was naive; wanting everything for cheap or free because I was the customer. I don't see Corsair as a greedy enterprise or trying to be one; like ahemmmm Apple. They are engineers trying to make the customer happy.

Sorry for the rant but I thought I would share this to show that Corsair is still a great company.

Errr... I love Corsair. I live near them and when I have had to RMA something it's awesome to be able to drop by and exchange it (Have to RMA my 1200AX soon =( its making a very annoying noise in the past month). Their customer service are really nice and helpful. All my memory from Corsair have worked as described and lasted for years. Even if it didn't last their RMA process is easy compare to many other companies. Their case are really nice too even though they aren't full aluminum (Please just don't add plastic on the 900, I hate too many plastic parts, makes it look cheap). Their all in one water cooling products are one of my favorite things they have produced. All in all I love Corsair, one of my favorite computer companies ever. They are very consistent with their quality unlike some other companies that I use to love.... Cough.EVGA.Cough.

Lets try and keep this thread on track lads, i dont want it locked because of a few people with loud opinions. teaching.gif

As for the case, its getting close to the end of the year. I just hope it can be out soon.

As for beta testers, a prerequisite for becoming one should be that you have owned many Corsair products. say 10-15 products. (using serial numbers to verify I guess.)
I would imagine giving people the 900D who owned the 800D would be a better idea than giving it to some kid with $60 case.
I would want the beta testers to be deserving of it not just some lucky random kid with many posts on OCN.

I think the Corsair products thing isn't so necessary, but experience with the product at-hand would be. For example, if we wanted to beta test a new keyboard design or something, I'd go to the guys in the keyboard forums around the net, find out who writes the biggest, longest, most well-informed guides, read for a few days or weeks depending, and then approach a few guys directly and ask if they'd be interested in beta testing a new keyboard.

Likewise, if I wanted to beta test a silent case, or a high airflow case, or a new watercooling case, I'd focus on the enthusiasts in that region and find a few guys who have specific knowledge of that subset, like MIke Chin at SPCR for silent PCs, and invite them into the group.

Arguably why give the 900d to someone who has an 800d already, they won;t appreciate it.
