Was that for the HX or the TX? The HX series is always much more expensive.
Corsair MIR bought the price down to $129.99, eBillMe instant rebate brought it down from that to $114.99
I recommended it to someone there in September, I bought mine in November 2 months later after that.
Protip: Wait for the Corsair MIR to be $40(usually every 1-2 months)...Check ZZF, Chief Value, and others periodically once to twice a month...The MIR is different among them at times!!!
But not to thread crap...since ZZF is OOS on it, Newegg is a warm deal worth considering for those who don't already have it.
