    just bought one as well. indeed had the camelback thing watching and got the notification as soon as the price dropped.

    as for amazon warranty, i've never had any experience, but i did have to send some ram a few years back directly to crucial i think the turn around was 2 weeks from me shipping to getting the new stuff back.

    i'd say thats pretty darn good.

    Picked up an 128gb M4 last week for $159 USD on Amazon. Delivered total cost $157 AUD, got to be happy with that.

    Crap I forgot to enable ACHI when installing windows. Big deal? Can I do it now?

    Q6600, GA P45DS3-P, Sata II port, 2 gig lamb.

    Edit: Switched to ACHI, no real-world difference noted but figures are higher. especially in the 4-64 section, whatever the hell that is?

    That is the latest, that firmware fixes a small bug with the 5000 odd hour restart issue.

    Welcome to true competitive market where prices change daily and consumers reap the benefits.
    Would you prefer they be like Australia - constant but high?

    It has fluctuated by 1-2c every 30mins or so over the last few days. Looks more like the price has a case of parkinsons.
