2) I see your using g.skill rip jaws. I was debating on going with either corsair or g.skill.The main 2600 8gb set was not listed on the z68 hardware compatibility list, although on g.skills site it says they work with the z68. Have you had any trouble using them and overclocking with them? Do they show up fine with XMP (mobo detection) and you are able to use tpm and oc without issues? XMP works perfectly with this ram. What's TPM? 3. I love your crucual m4 choice. in my opinion, thats the only reliable ssd right now. Do you use it as a boot drive, and if so, have you had any issues? I have not seen any firmware updates on that model yet so i am thinking its strong. does it get along with the z68 chipset? M4 is my boot drive. There was the issue where it hangs occasionally, but there's a registry fix. google for it. if you can't find it let me know.
