you don't need to use sets of 3 for ram. it just will be double not triple channel. the xeon W3520 is same spec's & chipset as 920. but better quality and over clocks better. and if your doing 3d type stuff it has ecc and other extras. there are black WD HD all over the net. they didn't have anymore????? should have got a black!!!

Well, all I'm saying is that they aren't horrible. I would much rather have a black.
