The hottest core showed 79-80C at the very hottest so I'm hoping that's OK. One more question though. I plan to add 2 more sticks of RAM, two more of the same OCZ for a total of 8GB. I do alot of VM work. Will these settings still work?

    Nice to hear it! Ya Intel Burn Test IS HOT!!! You will never run your system that hot for sure in normal use so you are good

    You may need to adjust a few things for 8GB, but not too much. Let me know when you get them and I will help you along

    I'm going to order some RAM this weekend so I have a couple of questions for you. I'm running 2x2 now for a total of 4GB so do you think it would be better to get 2x4 for 2 slots or get another 2 of the 2x2 sticks? Also, what RAM would you recommend for this board to get me to a total of 8GB and have the least problems? The RAM I have now can be used on another board. Thanks

    First off I have to say it... 8GB is overkill unless you are a Video producer or something like that.

    Mushkin is the brand I suggest for most compatibility, but I have not tested ANY brands 4GB sticks I think only a few make them even

    Well I do system architecture which needs to be tested on several virtual machines and I donít want to bring a big server home from work if I can run the VMs on my home computer.
