So not really much more optimization you can do unless you try changing down to 8-8-8-24 and running memory + stability tests to see if your system can tolerate the slightly speedier settings.

One note: You may find that reaching 1600 MHz on your DDR3 will require some voltage tweaking. I could never get my nominally-1600 MHz DDR3 to work at 1600, I had to be satisfied with DDR3-1333 mode with tight timings.
I got it at 1600 now with 1.507 voltage, cpu-z shows it at 800mhz so it should be ok now. How do i change it to 8-8-8-24?

DRAM timing control, Look for it in bios you'll find it.

Ok i'm going with a scythe mugen 2 cpu cooler (i still have 2 great 120mm fans left for it). About the case.. i'm stuck between 2 atm. I like both the haf 922 and the thermaltake element G. Does anyone know which would be the best for cooling? The element G actually looks nice, but that doesn't really matter to me.
