I hear the Dominators OC better.

I have the Vengeance ram and I can't OC all that well though maybe it is the amount of ram. The high heatsinks also limit the choices as of CPU cooler.

I'm using F8f currently as I had absolutely no luck at all with F8g. Though I am starting to think it's more so the RAM than the BIOS. Even if I reset my OC and use all stock settings in the BIOS (bus speed, cpu freq. & multi, voltages) I still cannot manually set the timings on the Corsair sticks. Even if I set them to exactly what the auto settings set them to. PC just will not boot and drove me up a wall.

I'm hoping to have much better luck with the new Mushkin's I ordered. My previous Mushkin kit ran like a champ but I wanted 8GB's and couldn't find the exact kit that I was running at the time.

You might want to consider reverting to F7. F8X BIOS doesn't really provide any benefits unless you are using an x6 processor. Some people have had more luck with F7 on original Phenom II processors.
