    It is 24 ft long and has 56,000 miles in good running condition and fair cosmetic condition.
    Uncle bo, that is identical. He wants $1200 for it I may offer $1000. Sound fair?

    I am a beginner (level 1) at League Of Legends. I have seen in an article that there are free champions for sale for the week. How can I get the free champions offered?

  • davemc74656

    I want a really fast flash drive and those look really good but I’ve heard of a lot of them failing when I look at their reviews. However, on the corsair website, they say that only half of 1% come back returned so I’m confused. Are there any alternatives out there that will be equally as fast?

  • Jose B

    Are there any differences between the different Corsair power supplies, besides wattage? For example, are there different versions of the 550w or 650w power supplies, or are they all the same, except in terms of wattage?

  • Larry R

    Basically, I’m researching components to build my very first desktop. I finally have a ATX motherboard to fit a Corsair 600T case. The website says it needs a ATX power supply as well. That being said, I really wanted a corsair 750W modular power supply, but can I get any power supply or does it have to be a certain ATX? I don’t quite understand it.

  • apleaforbrandon

    I’m planning to get CORSAIR XMS3 DDR3 TRIKIT (2GX3) for my motherboard P6X58D-E, as I want to get a total of 12 GB ram. is it possible to install it like that?

  • brincks26

    The Phantom Corsair was a car invented in the 1930’s that was decades ahead of it’s time. Do you think we would be in hover crafts or something of the sort if it had been released to the mainstream market? It would have set the bar alot higher for cars back then.

  • Praveen

    I have the power supply attached to the case. Now I am trying to connect the wires up. Do I have to plug in both 8pin and 24pin?

  • toast

    I was wondering if the Corsair H80 is a good hydro cooler for the price. I have a hyper 212 plus pushing my i5 2500k at 4.7GHz. I want to push it past 5GHz, and was wondering if the Corsair H80 would do that.

  • Mike
