    If youre close to pacific mall, u should head over to their warehouse as it is only a few minutes away. That way u are pretty much guaranteed to get what u want. I've run into problems a few times tryin gto get parts that were out of stck and thier stores, but instock at the warehouse. I have no experience with the pc3700 ram, so i cant tell u anything about it, other than what might be found online.

    Okay, cool. Not sure why but I've always assumed the warehouse wasn't able to sell product, guess I'll look into that, thanks.

    Yeah I think I'll stick with the 3700 gold. Sounds promising atleast, and hell it's sprayed GOLD so I'll be able to turn it into a x-mas gift eventually when it's time to upgrade lol.

    2.4 to 3.0, no problem. u should be able to do that right out of the box. I have my 2.6 up to 3.33 at the moment on OEM HSF. However, I am using a p4c800 deluxe, and have no experience with that abit board. I expect that u should be able to get a good 25% overclock with any of the p4 "C" CPU's. I have OCZ pc3500 ram in my system. I know that the asus p4p800 is also an excellent overclocker.

    Edit: The cpu on full load is at 52C while the roomtemp is 23C

    The "C" stands for 800 front side bus. How much u can overclock is dependant on the motherboard that u have and the ram.

    Oh i see... the "C" is stands for 800 MHz bus speed. Mine is only 533 MHz. I there a way to overclock mine? My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-8INXP dual channel DDR, 4 memory slots, but at the moment i only used one slot fitted with Kingmax PC3200 400MHz 512 DDR Gold

    VinnieVen:

    Did you use the P4C800-E's AI to o'clcok or did you do it manually ? If the latter what settings did you use ?

    I did it manually as I couldnt get it to boot at the AI's 30%, but wanted more than the 20% option.

    As for settings, I have the FSB set to 254mhz, voltage bumped up 10% for the CPU and memro is set at 1:1 I believe. I don't have the system infront of me at the moment to confirm however.

    Incase anyone was wondering.... I've had my rig setup for a few weeks now. Going strong with my 2.4 @ 3ghz... 36C idle. The rest of what I actually ended up with is in the sig below.

    EDIT: I'm running at 1:1 ratio, stock Intel HSF, and memory acceleration enabled.

    On our P4S8X's, you have a choice of Synchronous, Asyncronous and Performance with the chipset which controls AGP/PCI/Memory frequency and 1) they don't tell you what "Perofrmance" is . I am hoping that they lket you control all that separately in the P4C800 as I'd like to keep memory synchronous and leave AGP alone. Did yo adjust the memory timings ? If so, to what ? My nephew wouldn't go for the PC500 and went with the PC433 HyperX stuff
