    I suggest TX-2 or MX-2 over Arctic Silver anyday.

    If you need some help with your setup let me know once you get built and I can for sure help

    You may or may not be able to go much over the 1066 stock of the ram, all depends on timings and the actual chips used in the ram. But generally ya you can some.

    I do suggest a better then stock heatsink for sure since you are overclocking, but you may be able to do 3.4-3.6 on stock until you get a better one. All depends on how volt hungry your CPU is

    I always help when and if I can for sure!

    Ya, let us know when you get up and running and we can help for sure!

    So you using a 478 right now? If so RDRAM or DDR? Ya, you will see a HUGE Performance increase coming to 775, and quad at that!

    The Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro is relatively inexpensive and I get the impression it's the best for the price. From what I've read, the Xigmatek is excellent, but costs more. Personally, I'd get the mounting bracket for the back of the mobo. I'm using a Zalman CNPS 9700 on my E8400 and I'm very happy with it - it costs about the same as the Xigmatek I think, but comes with its own rear bracket.

    Just set high enough so you can for sure boot thru, then you can lower later.  Maybe 1.25-1.32 Actual will be needed, that could be 1.3-1.38 set in the BIOS, all depends on your vdrop.

    Thanks for reply. I sit around 32 Deg. with stock cooler at idle. Also i wanted to apply the config you mentioned but i noticed one of the option is "CPU Vcore….……….........................: All up to your chip, keep in mind what you set here will be less in windows, you can check the difference by setting something around the range you plan to use with your overclock at stock settings(Meaning just manually set the volts to check this difference amount) and then go into windows and see what CPU-z shows vs what you set.

    Just set high enough so you can for sure boot thru, then you can lower later. Maybe 1.25-1.32 Actual will be needed, that could be 1.3-1.38 set in the BIOS, all depends on your vdrop. Stock voltage manually set may work even, but not too likely. Basically this is just something I cannot advise really but something you have to find on your own"

    I have no idea what it can be. Could you tell me what to look for and set it according to that. I am complete newb to this OC thing. thanks for all the help.
