I'm sure you don't know what you're talking about. Do you know the entire situation? Do you know what I paid for those? Do you know why I paid for those? Do you know what the initial reviews of the C4Dominators said? Do you know why so many people are/were upset about it? If what you say is true, then why was Corsair offering a deal to anyone who bought C4Ds thinking they were getting MICRONs and got PROMOS? I think you should look around the Corsair forums a little before you tell me I should be happy with RAM I paid D9 prices for and got PROMOS, non-overclockables. If I wanted PROMOS and RAM that ran at stock and that was fine, then I would have paid $50-$100 less and bought value RAM AT THE SAME DDR2-800 SPEEDS.
If you still feel I'm wrong go to the Corsair forums and read the posts there by DerekT. He conveys my feelings exactly about the whole situation. Don't tell me I should've bought higher rated RAM, I'M AN ENTHUSIAST. What we do here at OCN is overclock. And by your same logic, you're telling me that if I wanted a 3.0ghz dualcore processor I shouldn't have bought a 2.0Ghz processor. Well guess what? I did and I have one. I paid less than $200 for over FX-60 speeds. The same situation with the RAM. I bought the more expensive RAM, instead of the value RAM, SO I COULD OVERCLOCK IT.
