That would be my suggestion DeRock, go with the G.Skill DDR2-800. I've got two sets of those $45 pairs and I love them. Will do DDR2-900 with a slight bump in voltages too As far as getting to 3.2ghz on a new E2180, you're going to need to give the chip at least 1.35-1.40 @ vcore. My older batch chip (Oct2007) does 3.0ghz on stock vcore, but takes 1.32 to get to 3.2. It gets a little warm for my tastes when I increase voltages, 54-56ÂºC on a Zalman 9500LED. I know that I could push more, but I want to keep this CPU for ALONG time (3-5yrs), so I keep temps way down. Anyways, the Tuniq Tower or TRUE CPU coolers would be your best bet, IMHO!
