You were right on the timings... I got it up to 3.8ghz and that seemed to be it.. I bumped the timings to 5-5-5-12 and now I've got 4.1ghz...

I also just ordered another 4870 to crossfire... Not sure that was a good idea... Kinda addicted at this point..

the AERO interface is the eye candy of vista
my bad i didnt account for the connectors, just whether or not it would run. good work AP4. nah pictures are fine, i was that excited my first time too xd. GSKILL PI ram, ive been hearing good things bout them, how are they for overclocking if youve tried?

I haven't done much with them really.. Look sweet though... I'm running 1:1... I had the timmings at 4-4-4-12 when I oc'd to 3.8ghz but anything more than that and I had to open them up a little...
