thinner fiber provides more strength(because more are packed in) than thicker fibers, gen 1 is technically better..gen 2 is easier to manufacture

All of our new products will be carved out of styrofoam and painted to look like actual parts. And we will be tripling the price on everything. And closing customer service and tech support. Our new corporate motto will be "Too Bad, Jerks."

If you were an EA rep I would think you were completely serious. Thankfully, you're not.

Do it. Go into the lab and carve a 600T out of Styorofoam and don't post again in this thread until it's finished. Also, your next post will be useless without pics. biggrin.gif

NVIDIA > AMD People told me a 7970 to a 770 would be a side grade but after seeing the difference here I believe a 660 wold have been an upgrade over the 7970 . So much smoother no more dropped frames or stutter.
2600K @ 7.61GHZ say what?
As of October 27 2013 I have had 9 news articles on the homepage at once. For the first time in my life I feel I have accomplished something and am actually happy about it.

they need to do something now. considering that
memory IC are going up in cost because mfg are
cutting back in supply.

OCZ was a good example of what not to do. Depending
on only a few third-party manufacturers basically doomed
them.

Thank you for being a voice of reason.

Like I said earlier, if you guys think our quality goes down or our products suck or something, that's one thing. But complaining about the names on the board of directors or whatever shouldn't concern you. We've had numerous rounds of private equity interest over the years. It hasn't affected our products one bit. I've been here 9 years and our CEO is still the same guy he's always been - and he's primarily concerned with out-engineering our competition. Marketing (my job) and sales are important, but if your product doesn't WORK better than the competition, it's almost always back to the drawing board here.

I can drink to that. As long as Corsair still keeps their kick ass products and customer service, then that is all I care about.

Why not file a claim through Ups saying i didn't sign for it, they should verify last names and see they delivered it to the wrong person. That's not corsairs fault for a misdelivery...waiting that long sure but not the delivery

The H100i has already been proven to be an excellent unit with much improved fans over the last model. I don't see how it can be "crappy" as you have so intelligently put it. If it is as you claim, and they took a long time to ship them, yeah, that's on them, but if they were delivered to the wrong house, why did you not contact UPS for the misdelivery? Since you obviously know they were delivered to the wrong place, that means you had a tracking number to check delivery status. When you check the UPS.com and you see the in big green letters "DELIVERED", with someone else's signature on it and it, in fact has not been delivered to your house, that would bring up a red flag in my mind. You can then call 1-800-PICKUPS and ask to speak to a rep to check why the hell it was delivered to the wrong place. That's just me though. I take it you think your 800D is also "bs garbage"?

Excuse me sir and/or ma'am, do you have a moment to spare to hear about our Lord Titan Z?
