You should be aware that you may have to loosen your RAM timings though. Generally speaking, it's not a good idea to fill all your RAM slots when overclocking as it will negatively impact performance.

If you still decide to get more RAM, make certain it's the same brand and the same default speed/timings as your original RAM.

It might depend on the situation. I have 2 of these boards and all 4 slots are filled on both and I haven't had any problems at all. One is OC'd to 3.4Ghz (could go higher, but was happy with that) and the other to 3.3Ghz (maxed out, cheap power supply on this one).

Aye, that's why I said 'generally speaking'. I've seen people post they've had no problems, but I've seen a lot more post they couldn't get satisfactory results.

Of course, this is purely anecdotal and I can't speak from personal experience, so I guess tensionz should probably give far more weight to your post than mine.

What about if I just used 3GB then? Doesn't XP only read that much anyways? Or can you unlock it through paging file or something.

Mine is reading 3.5.

I went from 2x1gb sticks to 4x1gb sticks on this board. I had to loosen out my timings from 4-4-4-12 to 5-5-5-15. Other than that I didn't have any problems.

Any 32 bit OS is only capable of addressing a maximum of 4 GB of memory. However, some of this address space is taken up by hardware, so in reality, depending on your hardware, when you have 4GB of RAM installed on a 32 bit OS, you'll see (and be able to use) anywhere from 2.7 to around 3.5 GB of it.

Just ran memset for 47hrs, came up with 0 errors.

Thanks to you guys I got my system (Q6600) running stable at 3.2ghz. I got a new video card Zotac 8800gt 512MB AMP edition and it is a dog. GPU-Z reports the PCI express running at x1 instead of x16. 3DMark06 was 4608. Is this because the PCI express frequency is locked down at 100? I have a 630w Raidmax PSU. My old video card reports x16 in GPU-Z. I uninstalled the driver,ran driver cleaner in safe mode including CAB cleaner then reinstalled driver 169.21. Flashed the Motherboard BIOS to F6 and intalled the newest intel chipset driver.
Any suggestions before I RMA.

Found the problem.
On the card just above all the PCI-e contacts is a cap or diode and looking at it from the back the first 3 from left to right are broken off. Acually 2 are missing and the third one is hanging by one end.
RMA time.
