And just to let you know, we have a well known LN2 overclocker in London too! He does review for HWC .
I shop at Mega, too.. They're often as cheap if not cheaper sometimes.
I bought my first 4850 there ;)

Cool! So there are quite a few Londoners here.. Excellent!

Just save up for a nice case so you can use your Hyper, better to keep it cool.
I'm definitely happy :D
Was just annoyed when the Hyper would not fit into my case.. haha

I love the Wavemaster, still one of the best built, best looking cases, but totally functionless.

I don't know what I'm going to do with it when I get another one, I like it so much. It's the oldest still in use hardware I have as far as my main rig goes.

Awesome,
I bet it was almost like going from my A64 3000+ Winchester 1.8ghz@2.6ghz with 2GB OCz DDR400 and 9600PRO to my Q6600 at 3.6ghz with 2GB DDR21066 and 8800gt back in December 07 :)
I think my next hardware upgrade is going to be a 80gb+ SSD of some flavor, my Q6600 is still plenty of muscle and with my 5850 now my games are plenty smooth.

Nice hub in your sig, I can't tell what it is? Do you mountain bike also? It's nice to see all of you semi-locals, might make getting rid of and collecting more junk easier. :P

Haha, something like that.

Although, the system ran well aside from games (The Opteron)

I believe the hub is an industry 9, but I'm an avid cyclist, so I just found an image that looked bling :D

I actually ride in Waterloo all the time @ the Hydrocut.. I don't work far (Stratford)
