hasnt this been done before on tech forums, nice job nonetheless
also, do you think a zalman can fare with a tuniq?


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

t1 is like 2 x 1 GB = 2GB
t2 is like 4 x 512 MB = 2GB
t1 > t2, keep t1

Good to hear that you finally got the temps under control and reached 3.0ghz.

that RAM is ace, it'll get you far. DONT put to many volts through it though, I'd suggest 2.2v as a MAX. 2.3v is you are feeling lucky. Anything over that, and Micron D9 chips have a nasty habit of dying on you.
