If I remember right, Thermalright claims their concavity as a feature; why?
Because they're idiots that's why. At least if they were convex they'd have better contact.
I've heard good things about Noctua products lately. A friend of mine bought one, not sure which model exactly (92 something?), he says it keeps his Q6600 nice and cool. Loads at something like <50*C @ stock. He's not into overclocking but he's got all the right equipment to do so, go figure.

Rammunition, if you can include a CPU-Z validation link of your OC, I'll go ahead and add you the roster.

If you can get your hands on a nice DDR500 set then that would allow for some nice OC'ing room. I currently run this set. I personally didn't think it was that great for overclocking. I believe the IC's are Hynix D43's. I was only able to push a 44Mhz overclock out of them. For day to day stuff the G.Skill memory is fine. I'm sure others will pop in soon and provide some other suggestions.

Good luck

Everyone I know has had great luck with these DDR1 OCZ Platinum sticks. Cas 2 with 2-3-2-5-1T timings. They are DDR 400.

Though, if you can find, I would really recommend getting the Mushkin Redline XP4000 DDR500 Cas 2 w/ 2-3-2-5-1T timings @ 2.6volts

Though, you'll have to search Ebay, and the such. I don't think you can find them new anywhere for a decent price.

Are you selling your rig?

Because if I get money soon, I could be interested in that board and maybe the CPU.

Simfreak, I hope the new build works out for you. If you do decide to sell anything please post it up in the For Sale/Wanted section.

Good luck

Looks like he may have to start building that rep to 35 if he wants to sell on OCN in the forsale/wanted section.
