    Actually I did, just set the multiplier to 38 and didn't touch anything else, seem perfect. May try 40 and see what the temps are..

    You may want to make sure target voltages with ET6 are not too high.

    Sorry I'm late in posting... Nice system, you should notice a real difference with that new setup compared to your last.

    Chike -I went into BIOS and reset it to "Optimized defaults", then popped the multiplier up to 38. It's running great and at very low temps.. Thanks.

    No one noticed I bought the wrong SSD drive (as I had no clue at the time). I RMA'd it and am now getting - Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) once the credit goes through.

    Sorry, most overlook details on C300 and just notice you said C300. I know I did, and that's probably how you ordered the wrong one to begin with too.

    I think they need to make it more clear to buyers which is which.

    No ones fault but my own but I agree. I chose that one from Tom's Hardware review and the price. They don't differentiate the difference between the 1.8 and 2.5 and in the specs don't mention one is SATA and the other mini-SATA (plugs).. If I didn't read about many having issues with using the adapter I may have tried it but I think i'm better off just getting the correct drive, especially since I am up and running with Vista 64 now anyway. When I get it i'll throw Win7 on it and keep this boot drive in the wings.. just in case I have any issues.

    Don't feel bad you are not alone, I've seen several people get that smaller drive on the Crucial forum too. That's why I think they shouldn't have made the model #'s look so close like they are now.
