Oh I know. That was the old one that supposedly had chipset cooling problems or something. I've decided on the MSI P6N SLI Platinum as it can hit the FSB numbers I'm wanting and is a little cheaper than the ASUS and benchmarks are all pretty much dead even between the two.

If your getting the E6600.
It has a 9x multiplier I believe?
To hit 3.3Ghz would require 336fsb at 9x.
Which would make your ram run at 672 mhz with a 1:1 ratio.
You defiantly don't "need" 1066mhz ram to overclock. You could easily get away with 800mhz ram with headroom for a higher overclock. Or even 667mhz ram with a 5mhz overclock.

"from the reviews I've read, that 520w PSU can easily handle OC'd C2D cpus, water cooling, 8800GTX's in SLI and multiple drives with no problem."

Where did you read those reviews? Nvidia themselves recommend at least a 750 watt PSU for 8800 GTX in SLI. I am willing to bet if you stick that 520 psu into a system like that your only going to get half the performance if you don't lock up and bsod.

What if he doesn't want to have his memory at 1:1 or synced? c'mon, who cares if the nb gets hot Get the faster memory, even if you decide you want to sync it you will have very nice timings

Well in his original post he was hinting on how the overclock would be for 1066mhz ram, and if he needed 1066 mhz ram. I explained it...

I didn't hog tie him and say not to get 1066mhz ram.

Well... I know that with everything I'm getting for cooling (the motherboard appears to be well setup to keep the chipset cool) but I also have a coolermaster blue ice chipset cooler and a swiftech MCX159-CU that I originally bought to use with this 2nd Abit board I'm using (see the "have you ever chipped a chip" thread) so if the platinum's heatpipe solution isn't good enough, I can always put these 2 on.

That and the zalman HSF I've got lends me to believe that if the memory/motherboard are capable of it, I guess I could technically oc everything higher but I've gotten like... 4 years of rock solid stablity out of my current system (see sig) and it's been running at those speeds since day one. I want this new system to give me the same stablity and hassle free operation for years to come.

None of these parts have been around that long to let us know whether or not it can last that long at these massive overclocks that some guys have. If the general consensus is that there's a lot more "safe" oc'ing potential from what I've listed, I'll definately go higher if I know the system will do it.

I just wanted to toss out a conservative estimate on what I want. If the performance difference though between a few extra hundred MHZ isn't much, and I can hit decent OC's with the 800 ram, I'd gladly like to save money but my main question regarding the 2 speeds of ram is whether or not (at the same overclock) would the 1066 ram benchmark faster and if so, is it much faster or is the performance margin negligable and not worth that extra $100?

well, I went ahead and ordered everything. Hopefully it will all be in for the weekend to give me something to do.
