Don't the cards come with molex->6pin connectors, so having that many 6pin+8pin connecters isnt necessary.

i got 4gb of OCZ platinum for just a little more than that gskill costs.


My ordered mobo only supports up to ddr2 800... Wouldn't it be a waste???

I know it's backwards compatible but I guess what I'm wondering would I get any other benefits since it would be capped at 800???

it wont be capped at 800 if you overclock your processor. say you theoretically could get 533mhz FSB outta that board (not likely)....you could then run your ram at 1066 stock speed (533 x 2) on a 1:1 ratio. not a whole lot of ddr2 800 will do that without lots of voltage or loose timings. nowadays it seems people are lucky to get 450mhz out of ddr2 800 with decent timings.

did you change mobos from the original post? i could have sworn that the mobo i looked at before my post said it supported ddr2 1066 with EPP 1...

yea really..if you OC and run a 1:1 ratio you won't need anymore than 800mhz RAM anyway

cause for 800 it'd be 400FSB and that's 3.6ghz on a Q6600, not many people go over that

Ok, I see what you are saying... No it's been the same mobo from the beginning..

MotherBoard
DFI LANPARTY DK X38-T2R LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail 184.99

It says memory standard ddr2 800...

I went with the E7200 if that matters at all...

So now let me ask you guys this. Will the RAM I went with (already ordered) gonna prevent me from hitting a good OC with my processor? Will it hold me back?

no. you will be able to run it 1:1 @ 400fsb for 3.8ghz overclock (your cpu has 9.5 multiplier) if your cpu will do that.
you will be fine with that ram.
i suggested the ddr2 1066 because i thought the mobo supported it, but i must have been thinking of another thread.

I'm actually going to be shooting for the big 4ghz mark... Would that be achievable???
