Also, these parts are looking incredibly sexy. I like the Mix of Black/White/Red. Nice twist to pull away from the standard Black/Red color scheme.

yea im thinking im actually going to just stay away from raid all together. at least until i get another 2. SSD's are plenty fast for me and i dont want to run into any hardware failure or loss of data. that would suck.

and thank you. honestly i was trying to go all white and blue. was doing well at that then i got my power supply and noticed the AX in "ax860i" was red.

didn't even notice it in the pics. so now im going all patriotic loll. mostly red and white. and all led's blue =)

will keep everyone posted

ill be gaming and video/ photo editing. thats all

As I understand it, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if you divide the frequency the RAM operates at by the latency you find the time it takes for the RAM to respond to a request. For example, I have the G.SKILL RAM kit F4-3000C15Q-16GRK, which runs at 3000 MHz with XMP enabled and the latency is 15. I don't recall off hand how to determine the units of the answer, but it's in seconds I believe.

15 / 3000 = .005

It takes my RAM about 5 ms to respond to a request. So in the futre when comparing RAM you can use this simple formula to compare the different RAM kits. This explanation is a simplified version, but it does a good job of explaining how those particular values relate to one another. smile.gif

Tell me about it man. OCZ has some new ones that just came out that look sick. But no led. I wanted them

Only reason I went with corsair is because they look so damn solid. Other wise I could have saved a lot of money lol. 16 down 16 to go.

I decided to go against the 64 that my mobo accepts. 32 it is

Yeah Dominators were just too spendy for me. I got some HyperX memory instead, it was cheap and timings were pretty good. That Predator looks awesome in there!
