I'm not 100%, but I don't think your RAM and mobo will be compatible. The mobo is DDR 400, but no where dos it say it will take DDR 500... It might, and just down clock so to speak... but there might be latent issues with drivers, bios, etc... while trying to put that ram on it. Do you have an OS? everything else appears ok...

With a system like that you deserve a better VGA

get the 7900 GT and I would look at a diffrent monitor becuase that is crappy 6 Panel.. dont let the 2MS fool you.

and get a antec 550....Rule of thumb is to never use case PSU, and specially if your OC'ing

Liking the ram, its good stuff

I have that cooler as well, My Idle temp is around 24 C



EDIT: Nukem the mobo automaticly downs it to DDR400 but when he OC's it it can go beyond that level.. Great OC'ing ram it is

perfectly compatible

So what? will it "down clock" DDR 400??? what kind of performance can he get compared to 400? I'm searching but no luck so far... Sorry Fuxy_Muxy I'm not trying to steal your thread, but it benifits us both.

it will get downlocked to ddr 400 speeds, but when he overclocks his CPU, he wont have to worry about the ram for 50MHz worth of OCing.
