It's that time of year again, Should have my new stuff sometime next week.


Asus Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard, Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8 GB 2400 MHZ CL10 ram, Evga GTX 780 TI SuperClocked, 256 GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD, 4 TB WD Black, Corsair Air 540 case. Also picking up the Individually sleeved cables for my AXi860 PSU. going RED and black themed again! Also have 3 Corsair 140 MM Red LED fans to replace the 3 fans that come with the case. Was going to replace my h100i fans with LED fans but can't seem to find compatible PWM fans.


On a different note. I have a question concerning cpu motherboards and ram.. My cpu supports 1866 MHZ ram, my board supports 2133 MHz, and the Formula Z supports 2400 MHZ, I know it's opverclocking that allows for the faster ram to be used than the cpu actually supports... but how exactly. FSB:DRAM ratio?
