So then the Reapers should be able to run at 900 fairly easily, right?

That's my only concern because I want to reach 4Ghz with that chip but I want the RAM to be able to run at 1:1.

You can reach 4.0ghz, everyone can from what i've heard. I just don't know exactly what ratio your cpu:ram needs to be. That guide I posted before should help you a little hopefully.

Go to this review there are a couple of pictures of the bios. Go to your memory timing settings not the system memory multi and change the actual speed of the ram and take it off of auto and downclock it there. Then mess with your system memory multi. I know you can do it I owned that board.

Thanks everyone, I think I am going to grab the RAM and then get the E8400 next.

You don't need new ram that goes faster you just need to read up on your bios and do what I suggested. New faster memory is always nice though.

Edit: Unless you are wanting to run 1:1 and OC your memory past stock and it won't OC at all.

I was looking for new RAM because my current 2x2GB kit is failing. I keep getting BSOD and it's becoming unstable. I think I had it running too high. It was some cheap version of G.SKILL 667 running above 800 and the voltage was probably too high. As soon as I put it in even at stock settings it crashes.

I have tried settings in my BIOS from that guide and currently it's been no help, but with new RAM it can't hurt.
