    overclocking e6800. are my settings for fsb and ram 1:1?

    ok the e6800 has a multiplier of 9 fsb of 1066 i want to take the e6800 to 3.6ghz so.. so i set it 400x9=3.6ghz now for my ram.. i would just have to increase it to 400 as well right? so 400x4=1600mhz fsb? let me know if i'm right. thanks

    Kingwin Revolution RVT-12025/OEM Xigmatek HDT-S1283 deserves more attention.

    go with xigmatek. its the same EXACT thing but cheaper. they are made by the same company anyway. i bought 2 from xigmatek. the vertical and the horizontal heat sink. both are in direct contact (COPPER PIPE + CPU heat spreader)

    My 4400+ or my memory

    i got a socket 939 hitting 2.74 for the past 2 years stable but man if i was hitting 2.96ghz i would try and squeeze an additional 40mhz to hit the 3ghz. so close!

    My 4400+ or my memory

    hmMm... timings are loose. if you have a friend, i would barrow ddr2-800 and see if you can push the ram a bit higher. you will know in a few minutes if it will boot but the problem is maintaining stability. is your goal to hit 3.0ghz?

    Which Mobo for E8400 Out of the Box

    no i don't think so. i think the p35 chip set existed before any 45mm came to the market. for instance... if you have an old gigabyte ga-p35-ds3l revision 1 board. you need to update the bios to f8a in order for it to recognize.
