Nice video, however it seems to be out of focus when zoomed in. Also I would look into using a tripod (or something like that) to avoid the camera motion as I find it makes the video more difficult to watch. Just some constructive criticism, hope you don't mind.

I'm building a thing to velcro the camera to, it should be done soon.

Sorry if I sound like a newb, but I have seen and read on other articles on AM3 platforms, you should put the ram in the first and second slots to utilize Dual-Channel.

That was a must till am2+ days. You can take a look at most asus am3 boards, you will realize that in order to use the memory interleaving option the sticks will need to be installed in the first and third slots. The same as an intel board.

Thanks for the clarification, I suppose that's what I get for not building a PC in 5 years.
