I have an Evga nForce 680i sli and no Ram yet. I can get whatever ram suits the processor best. Same thing goes for every other piece i have to buy. If the Q6600 can go 400 x 9, does that mean the Q6700 can go 400 x 10 ? So like 3.6G/s max vs 4g/s max ? I have been reading the overclocking manual for my mobo at the nvidia website here, http://www.nvidia.com/docs/CP/45121/...erclocking.pdf
That manual helps but is still a bit over my head at the moment.
Ok after hours and hours of reading i am starting to understand this a little. I am reading all over the place that my motherboard is terrible to overclock with. My FSB is going to top off somewhere between 350-375. Also i guess some people have troubles overclocking with this motherboard while having all 4 Ram slots full. So i am going to be limited to 2024x2 @ 1066
I am ordering the Q6700 tonight i think because it sounds like i will be putting that extra multiplier to use and i would rather spend an extra $40 i didn't need to than cheat myself out.
