Hi blackwater, welcome to the forums.

Question #1: Nope that sounds good. What I would do actually is run 400x8 @ 3.2Ghz even, RAM at 1000MHZ, 4-4-4-12 timings, isnt much of a performance gain to try to tighten the timings down. The timings wouldnt work out to great most likely on that high a voltage so you would need to lower it down to do that which isnt really worth the frequency loss. Also I think you should be fine leaving it at 1.4Vcore with 400x8, if not raise it up as long as your temps dont go over about 70C on all cores in Coretemp 0.95.4.


Question #2: To run a full 4GB of ram in XP youll need a 64-Bit version, which really isnt all that worth it so you my has well go vista if you really want 4GB so you can really put it to use. I would stay like you are for now. Only 64-Bit operating systems support a full 4GB, otherwise it will only be using around 3GB of it which would be pointless to have bought it unless you can fully support it


Question #3: If you installed 4 GB on a 64-Bit operating system then youd probably be best running 4-4-4-12, 1000Mhz just like before, and somewhere around 2.20v


Question #4: Your motherboard will support 4GB fine, its the 64-Bit OS that you need enable to use it. 4x1GB would be 100% fine.

Hope that helped a little, feel free to ask anymore questions.
Meh.

oh yes.. and the memory is running at 2.15v

You can probably lower the voltage down a bit. The best way to make sure your memory is stable though is to download MemTest 86+. Its just like a stressing test tool like ORTHOS but for your RAM overclocking.

Download it from here:
http://www.memtest86.com/

Burn the .ISO file to a CD-R if you can and post back and ill letcha know how to run it if you got some blank CD's

you have to use something like Power ISO and burn FROM a .ISO file to burn it correctly though keep that in mind. It has to be burning specifically for .iso's not just data or something like that
Meh.

Some motherboards don't like high speeds with 4GB so in that case just lower the clocks a bit

An example would be that my RAM is 1066Mhz stock but cant do that with 4 slots filled. So i run 800Mhz but with 3-3-3-8 timings.

And nice ass list of stuff to get. Then you can sell the P5N and AC7 and get a set of speakers or something like that. Do you have any good speakers currently or no? This is coming from a wannabe audiophile though
Yep sell the mobo and AC7 but the cash from them will go to re imbursing my bank acount after the spend up.

I don't have good speakers, just some rubbish logitech, i use my creative fatal1ty headset anyway.

A X-fi xtreme music may be in order though

Or.. a razer deathadder and reclusa.
