You pay full price at check out. Then download the rabte form and fill the info and mail out. You will get the rabte check within 6-7 weeks.


I am OK with tracers light but my kids love it.

ah right ok well im not living in USA im in england, just we dont have those mail rebates here....

i checked and my pc can recognise the crucial 8500's, so is it true that the memory wont actually run at 1066 unless i OC it to that? my mobo supports 1066 however

Correct. In default mode, the ram speed changes as fsb changes. For instance you 9x e8400, at stock 3G, at 1:1 ratio, the ram will be 667=2x333.5, when you OC cpu to 3.6g, then ram is 800=2 x 400 and at 4G, 888=2x444. If you want 5:6 ratio, then ram is 1066=2.4 x 444.

oh snap, so if say im looking to get my e8400 to around 3.8ghz on air, does this mean that my ram will be approx 844mhz? is there a way to differ the method so that i could get my cpu to 3.8ghz but my ram at 1066?/ sorry im completely new to the subject!

yes you can use dividers to speed up or slow down the ram alos i would go for DDR2-800 crucial as it can easily oc to and past 1066 i have mine sitting 1036 atm but i have not pushed them at all
post #17 of 25
1066 is a OC version of 800. To get 1066 when you aren't sure or your ram may not run at that speed. In this case, your ram should run at 1066 if you do 4:5 for 3.8G. You don't need to run your ram at 1066 all time plus you need to apply proper voltage also.

i see, hmm well ill just set cpu clock to 3.8ghz, that shud give me just over 800 mhz ddr2, which i think will suffice

By default, the ram is the same as fsb, which is 2:1 ratio so you need to manually set it in BIOS before it reachs 1066.
