Doesn't make much sense, huh?
I meant I have SATA connections, including on my SSD.

Oh, didn't realize you already had an ssd.

I got confused when writing my sentence. I was saying SATA and SSD were substitutes ... obviously not true.

So I went ahead and bought g.skill pc8500 2x2gb 1066hz 2.1v sticks to complete my mobo.

I do have a question now about oc'ing since fewer ram sticks aid in a proper oc ...

I want the benefit of 8gb of ram. I also want the benefit of oc'ing. I've never oc'ed before, but I have read the how to's and it seems straight forward. My question is do I oc with the 2 sticks in then add the new 2 sticks in and tweak from there? Or do I add the 2 new sticks first then OC with all 4 in?

To overclock with all four ram slots filled your going to need to raise North bridge voltage. Filling all slots is more stressful on the nb.
Clear cmos, install the second set of ram, Then overclock
