Ok, you made me feel better, hah. But I don't really think I'll do heavy OC. I just need a RAM that can do OC, and play games fine?

Because I think it's only chipset problem that I need to reinstall because I get frequent BSOD.

I'm 100% stable at the overclock I'm at now; it's just a drag that I spent so much on this memory/cooling and can't clock it any higher than this.

But when it comes to choosing between the board I have now and the 680i chipset, I'll stick with what I have for stability concerns.

Something else: Plan on using slots 2/4 or 3/4 to run these. You get system instability using any other combination. And keep your northbridge v-core set to auto.

I have not toyed with my Newcastle since about November 04 so forgive my lack of AMD knowledge.
Wow, I've really been slacking with the hardware knowledge lately... I knew they didn't have FSBs, it just totally slipped my mind.



Anyways, I'm forcing myself to wait for Barcelona before I upgrade my system. If AMD is really going to blow us away, I don't want to be sitting here with $500 worth a parts that I regret buying.

I really want that CPU upgrade though. Too many heavy CPU limitations in games right now, and with physics heavy games like Crysis on the horizon, its only going to get worse.

If I were to go Intel right now though, I'd be getting a P5B (vanilla), an E6600, and I think I'd go with this ram, since people are saying it has some great chips on it:

Also, I want to cool the CPU with a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme and a Scythe S-Flex 120mm.

The P5N32-E SLI Plus is extremely picky about RAM. I have those sticks that you ordered, and they don't work as well with this board as I would've hoped. A friend of mine has these that I linked paired with it, and he's able to overclock his E6600 higher than I can w/ them. They're recognized as SLI-ready by this board while mine aren't.
Wow nice RAM with nice timing. Thanks, I'm getting dual channel for this one. Price's pretty good with $40 off.

A decent set of PC 6400C4 will do fine ,like has been said running at faster speeds shows very little performance gain ,I have ran my at 600 3-3-3-6-1T ,and 800 4-4-4-8-2T and 1200 5-5-5-15-2T and seen less then a 2to 4 percent difference.
