by price and proportion the 170 overclocks better but they both reach roughly the same speeds.

thanks nite, but im assuming even at the same speeds the pros of 175 is that it would be a cooler temp right. I just bought the 175 for $335.

now i have to get the other stuff, lol

it really depends on the individual chip you get but in general the 175 should be a little cooler at overclocked speeds because it wouldn't require as much voltage

its fine, there is no physical difference between DDR400 and DDR500 chips other than the fact the latter are rated to run at higher frequencies, in other words greater overclocking ability

well its the size of the fan and generally the larger the fan the more air it pushes. the number, size and position in the case matters as it determines how effecient air flow is in the case which is vital to air cooling a cpu and other components
