When I said "if you get that RAM" I meant the G.Skills
I don't even own a AMD64 system and everytime I talk to an owner of one and mention the HTT Link speed they never know what it is lol...know your hardware!
Your board is 1600 or 2000HTT right? Well if it's 1600 your link speed is 4x, and if it's 2000 it's 5x, it's the Hyper Transport multiplier to give that overall high system bus speed.
All amd64's are 200HTT, meaning it matches that of PC3200, know what I mean?
Well for a 2000HTT board it's 200x5 = 1000 x 2 = 2000 that x2 is because of it being a 64bit CPU.
Unlike socket A's where you can OC the frontside bus beyond 400, it's never recommended with the AMD64's nor will it really even give you a huge benefit. So if you raised your CPU htt to like 250 then it'd be 250x5 = 1250 x 2 = 2500, way too much for the board, so you'd have to lower that link speed down to 4x to accomidate
