Note that unless you're on a Phenom II x6, don't expect to hit 3ghz NB

Thanks for the numbers! I am currently running the CPU-NB @ 2665MHz and 1.25V. Do you think that is enough for when I add the 2 extra DIMMs?

I received the other 4GB kit today and installed it.

I ran various benchmarks and things seem to be going very smooth with NB @ 2665.

With 8GB now, I put my Chrome cache folder inside a RamDisk Volume and man it's instant!!

I can also see that Win 7 puts more RAM in reserve thereby taking advantage of Superfetch and loading apps much faster.
