    Those are hot CPU's for sure, if you get a 9550 you can do 3.6 at a cooler temp easily. You could also likely run 3.8-4Ghz with a 9550, but then you would want a new cooler as well, so that might be something you should go ahead and get now.

    Well I hate to drag this back from the dead but I figured out what the problem was. It is the RAM. I didn't realize that when running the CPU at default speed that the RAM was still running at its rated speed. As this is PC2 6400 downclocking the CPU didn't help as the memory was still running the same speed. I downclocked the RAM it is finally stable while gaming. But there is NO WAY I am running this thing at 2.4 with the RAM underclocked. I am not really interested in working with this RAM any further. According to the Newegg reviews it does not work well with Intel chipsets. Too bad those weren't posted yet when I bought it. It's what I get for trying to save a buck. I am thinking about 4 of these Newegg.com - Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Desktop Memory Model 991619 Any thoughts or better suggestions?

    Mushkin Blackline (1066MHz) 996599, Redline (1000MHz) 996593**, or 996623 are excellent choices.
    Best bet is to buy a matched kit.
    If you're going to run with 8GB, you might need to underclock your ram somewhat, maybe ~ 5%.
    If you post to the Mushkin forum with your hardware setup and needs, they will respond quickly with recommendations.
    On several occasions, I've called their toll-free tech support people. Wait time was minimal.

    ** $20 MIR until 17 June 2010 (limit 1 rebate per household)

    Let us know how you make out.

    Thank for the reply. I may actually drop to 4GB after thinking about it. I sit here and see about 25% memory utilization with this thing most of the time. I went 8GB thinking I would do some virtualization but even the 4Gb seems enough. I mostly built this thing for gaming and haven't been able to use it for that.

    Is there a difference between the Blackline 996599 and the 996619 (dual kit for the module I linked to in previous post) other than the heat spreaders? I find the Ascent models more visually appealing. I will hit the Mushkin forums as well for some advice, but I want to make sure I do the research to get the right parts this time. What do you guys think are the chances I could hit somewhere close to 4Ghz if I get a pair of these and a Q9550?

    8GB of memory would probably be better if you were running multiple virtual machines and/or some memory intensive rendering/encoding applications.
    The Ascent modules have very thick heat spreaders.
    You won't be able to physically install four Ascent modules, as the memory slots on GB mobos are too close together.
    The Frostbite and Ascent modules appear to be electronically identical.
    My 996599 Frostbite modules are very cool to the touch. They're not very pretty, but they work well.

    3.80GHz with a Q9550 is usually easy, 4.00GHz takes a little more work, but should be doable. Several have 4.25GHz or higher stable systems.
    Best bet is to use a top tier cpu cooler.

    How far do you think I could push 4 modules? I haven't had any luck with the ones I have. They won't even run at the rated speed. I would like to have 8GB but if I can run considerably faster with 2 modules then that will be the way I go because ultimately the gaming is more important than the virtual machines will be.

    It boils down to the luck of the draw, that is, how good are your hardware components.
    If you luck out and have better than average parts, you'll be able to run your memory at its full rated speed.
    Some memory manufacturers state on their websites that rated memory speeds are only guaranteed when using 2x2GB kits.
    Mushkin has an 8GB 800MHz memory kit for about $300 on Newegg, so that kit should easily run at its rated speed.
    With 4x2GB of 1066MHz memory, you might have to underclock them to about 950 - 1000MHz, but you would be able to use somewhat tighter memory timings at the lower memory speeds.

    Well... The GeIL was an 8GB kit that was rated 800 MHz at 4-4-4-12 and it won't run 800 at 6-6-6-18 so the value of buying these "kits" isn't much for me at this point. That is why I am looking at the 1066 this time. I figure I should be able to get at least 800 out of them which will work if I keep the Q6600 as I am good with the 3.6 on this chip. I feel good about buying the Mushkins. Now it is just a question of whether to buy 4GB and a Q9550, or 4-8GB and keep the Q6600. Thanks for the help.

    Glad to help out.
    I think that the Q9550 with 4GB would blow away the Q660 with 8GB.
    Check out both of Conners Q9950 (sic) overclocking threads. He was blown away when his Q9550 moved from 3.6 to 3.8GHz. Naturally, he "had" to go 4.25GHz and beyond. ;)
    Let us know your final choice.

    Mushkin memory is great, you wont regret it!

    I'd stick with 4GB unless you absolutely have to have 8GB for a specific reason
