    What type of rambus? ECC or NON-ECC? I heard that ecc is for servers... What is the difference?

    EEC is an error checking circuit on the memory used in data servers mainly but it does have lower performance due to it and also costs more. ;)

    Just got the mobo today, rest of the parts will be here on monday. I can't wait, LOL.

    I looked at the mobo, theres so many switches on it. I'm wondering if it will be hard to configure? I have to read the factory manual.

    Also, when installing the p4 + heatsink on monday, do I have to use some kind of compound ? I heard people use something..

    Ha those switches are nothing. :D
    Just go thru the manual a couple of times and you'll be ok. ;)
    Either Arctic Silver 3 or Evergreen TherMagic are the best heat transfer compounds around atm. :)
    Good luck with it. :thumb:

    There are those who will tell ya that it's not but I wouldn't gamble on it, it would be a shame to have to pull it apart again due to a cooling problem. ;)

    Speaking of those who will tell you that its not a must, i ran an atlhon XP with the stock AMD heatsink and the pink paraffin compound, at temps of about 30C idle and 50C load. Of course putting in proper thermal compound did help. So its not a must, but its something you would want to do for sure.
