sure will my friend..having issues with my ram though...I have some boot problems every now and then and whenever I remove the second 2 gig stick all of my problems go away...hate that...gonna see if there is a bios update because this problem happens no matter what low clocks I set it at. My mobo may have a problem with the patriot extreme ram. It is rated to run at 1600mhz at 7-7-7-20 at 1.9 volts. stays cool at that voltage.
BTW running at 1600mhz FSB now..stable.
Gotta get my camera back so I can take pics of this rig..
gonna run 3dmark with this 1600mhz FSB now..the motherboard is rated to run at that and I just turned it up there.
still at 4ghz though- that's enough for God's sake.
edit- Think I found the problem!The sticks are rated at 7-7-7-20 and one of the sticks works fine at this but the other does not so I just relaxed the timings a hair and it seems to have resolved the issue.
Now running 1600mhz ram in sync mode with the FSB which is also at 1600mhz...sweet! gonna run some benchies!!
