    with a dual core you might be able to get higher FSB frequencys, but if you run the FSB that high you run the risk of making your memory instable... the Reapers are pretty good for overclocking when you have the settings right tho... maybe just dont use sleep mode until they revise the BIOS

    imo I think these OCZ RAM modules absolutely suck. I read nothing but good reviews on them before I bought them and couldn't find many user issues with them. Once I got them I've been having nothing but issues with EVERY single BSoD I've had has always pointed to corrupt memory or something. My old G.Skill RAM modules sh*t all over these ones. I should of picked up the OCZ Reapers 1066 instead for a little extra money.

    And yea I agree, I just don't think this BIOS is very stable, it's a good thing they have the Sleep mode fixed but it's still not completely stable. I think I might revert back to F7 and keep it until F9 BIOS comes out.

    Ya, it very well could be the BIOS, if you do not depend on S3 and had better luck with the older BIOS then you may just want to go back.

    1.4V set in the BIOS is only 1.34 or less, you know that right?

    And I agree, With your thoughts about G.Skill
