But then I think more ram is better than slightly faster ram anyway.

I have a lot of small mosfet heatsinks left over from an old build ,is there any place on a p5b that would be good to use them on?

Is the p5b optional heatpipe fan always a no no with air cooling?
Yeah dont use that heatpipe fan if ur using an air cooler.

I noticed when i was running my mobo outside the case once that theres these little chips in the far bottom left corner of the board that gets SUPER hot. Maybe you could put mosfet heatsinks on that. Let us know how the overclocking goes!
