Tax was just increased to 7% in N.J. So you're paying ALOT. And they don't even ship from NJ so I still have to wait for Cali. Weeeeeaaaak.

Thanks Ninja Boy..... I'll do it plus the e6600... lapped? thats like sanding right? "Chozart in training" hahahahah

Yup, lapping is where you get Grit 200-2000 Sandpaper (Not all the way to 2000 but like 200, 400, 600, 800, 1000, 1500) and you smooth the bottom of your HS/F (Heatsink Fan) to dissipate heat better. Yeah, with an E6600 you'll see nice results and you should get 3.0GHz Steady for 24 Hours easy. Later on, I'd invest in a ThermalTake Big Typhoon, add VGA Ram Heatsinks on the base to help dissipate heat, lap that, and install it using Arctic Silver 5. You should see an overclock reaching past 3.4GHz with that.

And yup, I'm Chozart in Training. Oh, and don't get the Deluxe/WiFi Edition, some people have problems overclocking with a Frontside Bus past 400MHz.

I'd get the Big Typhoon over that cooler, but that's just me. I'm sorry Chozart.
The Big Typhoon has a 16dBA - 54.4CFM Fan while the Scythe has a 23.5dBA - 46.5CFM Fan.

Yeah i ordered an e6600, p5b dlx, psu from ZipZoom this monday, just a warning to ya if u never got stuff from there before, for some reason they need to verify the address with you through the phone before they ship it (which they don't let you know ahead of time) so make sure you have access to the phone on the days after you make the order. Their proccessing is much slower than newegg, I ordered the vga and ram from newegg on the same day and i already recieved them yesterday. On the other hand Zipzoom's items have only left for shipping today and i wont recieve them till monday.

But then again i saved 50 bucks on zipzoom and they did say these were the approx times. And also the newegg warehouse is a 15min drive from my house so they like have an advantage on shipping time.

EDIT: Btw this is why i asked what zzz standed for i guessed it but didnt wanna share my experience not making sure it meant zipzoom, if it werent my comments woulda been really out of topic

The fan is not the only thing that matters on the cpu cooler (plus, fans are the parts to replace anyways...LOL).

The Big Typhoon is also a good cooler... I'd say those two are close together in performance.

Wait I shouldn't get the p5b deluxe.. or just the p5b deluxe wifi?

And ZZZ doesn't have buffalo, or g.skill... so is this ram ok? https://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produ...ctCode=80061-9

Not the Wifi. (almost typed 'wife' there... LOL)

The P5B Deluxe is a great board. Not sure myself about why the wifi would hold it down a bit though. Odd.

Crucial is good RAM. I'd say better than buffalo.

Thanks, for quick response. One more question. I like this RAM because of rebate and it has same timings as RAM above, buts its called crossfire edition. Does this mean it won't work well with my nVIDIA GPU? And I love the color of it http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ductCode=85266

EDIT" I think that ram isnt EPP.. therefore NVM

Wait now I'm really confused because I don't knwo what is more important... having EPP or better timings? For instance... one ram 4-4-4-15 EPP another 4-4-4-12 non-EPP. Which is better?

EDIT: Timings

Has EPP actually taken root already?? Not much EPP stuff out there yet, and it's fairly quiet around this issue. As far I know it's still just a gimmick, and good overclockable RAM is preferable over EPP.

Likewise, for an Intel rig, timings don't matter that much. Intels love bandwidth, and looser timings are easily offset by a bit higher clock speed of the RAM.

I'd get good overclockable RAM (D9's if you can), and I believe the Crucial has D9's (hey, they own Micron, so they should... lemme check to be sure).

Crucial would be my pick, for overclockability reasons only (which trumps any EPP or timings issue for an Intel rig).

yeah crucial = micron there the same thing, i have a list of good ram, ill get it and brb

$375 - Crucial Ballistix - D9
$350 - Crucial Ballistix - D9
$305 - G.Skill HZ - D9
$300?? - Team Xtreem - lookin for reviews
$310 - OCZ
$290 - Crucial Ballistix - D9???
$275 - Patriot
$275 - Corsair
$240 - Buffalo Firestix
$250 - G.Skill
$245 - OCZ
$240 - G.Skill

the ones that say D9 are guranteed D9s, the ohter ones your taking your chance on

btw D9s are the chips used in the ram, chepear ram use cheaper chips as D9 is the best chip
