    Nice to see stability with mismatched modules! Yes, all that looks very fine, voltages are ok as well that you asked about.

    So, you cannot use lower tRD (Static tRead) like 7 or 8? Just wondering

    You should try 399/401 FSB and see if that allows you to lower vcore any at all, 400 is right on the NB Strap line is why I suggested that. Or maybe FSB Voltage +.2 and see if Vcore can come down.

    It does look a little bit high for 3.6 is why I am making those suggestions to try, but some chips are just volt hungry so you never know. Your chip may just need that to do 3.6

    Thanks for the recommendations, I'm afraid i wasn't very methodical when I originally made a couple of those changes. I will try to lower tRD first and do some testing.

    Well I have tried all of your suggestions, lowered tRD to 7 and had no issues. I tried both 399/401 FSB and tried to lower Vcore but my chip was not having it. I think it is safe to say that I have found the sweet spot for 3.61 considering my components and temps. Thanks for all of your help LSD.

    Well at least you tried! Ya, some chips are just that way!

    Glad to see you are up and running smoothly, post back if you need anymore help!

    Did yours die or dou you just want to add more? If you want to add more get the same one again since using two different types of modules canc ause problems.
    If you don't overlock there's not much point in getting faster memory than DDR2 800 since the extra bandwidth doesn't actually get all the way to the CPU. Read this answer that I posted for another post:

    Now the bandwith of the RAM to NB is the same if the 2.0 system memory multiplier is used, i.e. DDR2 667 for a 333 (1333 quad-pumped) FSB CPU, DDR2 800 for a 400 FSB CPU. If you increase the RAM speed without increasing the FSB, data is transferred faster to the NB from RAM, but the NB can't pass it on any faster to the CPU than before though resulting in no performance benefit (there's a litte benefit actually, as latency is improved if RAM speed goes up, but it's small ~5% or so).
    If you're not overclocking get DDR2 800 RAM, if you plan on overclocking in the future get 1066 DDR2 (runs at 533 MHz so you can increase your FSB to 533 (2133 quad pumped) without having to overrclock the RAM). The reason why faster DDR2 RAM exists is solely for overclocking purposes, as slower will limit the maximum overclock of your CPU.

    There is no "best" but the OCZ Platinum 1066 4GB works perfectly for me.

    The reason why there is no "best" kit is because at stock all DDR2 1066 5-5-5-18 are pretty much the same. Some kits may tend to overlock better than others but before buying you can't tell if the kit you're going to receive is a good overclocker and will reach DDR2 1150 for example.
