Correct and that's becouse I've already know my highest stable OC for my ballistix tracers 8500 kit
If you see the OC reference screenshot of my last system in the 1st page, you can see that my ram kit could easily OC up to DDR2-1200 at only 2.2v and 5-5-4-5-3-30-3-3-5 tight timings/subtimings...
Curretnly 425FSB in 4/5 divider is VERY EASY on the rams

Amazing temps. (I will also be using a P5K Deluxe
Sorry if I've missed this question about my ambient temp, I thought I answered this already...or maybe on other forums
RIght now in the early morning, the ambient temp is around 21c but gets up to 30c ++++ later int he afternoon.
It's summer time so it's actually the worse time for Quad core + air but gotta thank G0 first and then my awsome lapping job...
