    Lets hope all the sticks are still good.
    Ive run my current memory at 2.4 v in bios just for testing but have never noticed any real performance increase above 2.2v.
    I could probably get
    450 fsb(900mhz)5-5-5-15 timings with 1.9v
    480 fsb(960mhz)5-5-5-15 timings with 2.0v
    do get
    450(4-4-4-12) with 2.2v
    490(5-5-5-15) with 2.08v
    500(5-5-5-15) with 2.2v
    testing:not recently
    1066mhz ddr2(6-6-6-18) (unstable)
    with 2.4v
    Essentially tho any voltage increase above 2.2 gives nothing much in performance.

    I have tried my current memory 2x2gb with 2x2gb of samsung 5300 value ram.
    the samsung ram has a limit of about 730mhz ddr2 without going crazy on voltages, on its own.
    I got somewhere around the 700mhz mark using all 4 sticks of mixed memory,reasonably stable

    Ooooh wow what an overclock!

    My present "performance" ram got dumbed down to the "value" ram settings and less than that .because 4 sticks instead of 2 probably.

    Im just thinking if you have the time(inclination),and because u may of lost track of which memory sticks were a matched pair .
    1.mark each stick with i dunno a dot of tippex or someting along the top edge,one dot for stick one etc.
    2.test each stick individually or even (shudder) test which pairs of sticks work best together.
    3.pop all 4 sticks back in and maybe expect 10% lower memory/speed performance than u achieved from the worst single stick or 15% worse than the worst pair .
    something like that ;)

    Im not "using" it or even recommending it but have tried it,kinda like waccybaccy.
    It was for 530 cpu ref (2120 fsb) testing.
    Im just saying the memory is still alive but anything above 2.2 didnt suddenly bring new memory performance.
    Well honestly I have used a higher bios voltage setting, and higher voltages all round which we needent go into: when conners and myself were posting our "validations" in the 2080-2120 fsb range .
    You know the thing where you wait for a cold day, blow cold air over the pc with the side panel off and hope the overclock holds long enough to cpuz validate it :)
    Kinda like dry ice cheapo ,not watercooling cos that does have long term usability .
