based on this review plus from my experience no such thing as too much memory http://legitreviews.com/article/879/1/

Are you running with HT on or off?

Thanks!
I'm still running some numbers that i'll post but with the 965 I found ways to get it to 4.1 easily without going too high on voltage or killing the cpu like on a 920

the 965 gets to 4.1 easily without extreme voltages. 4.4 is nice but not a big difference. a 920 to reach 4.1 takes a lot of voltage and will kill it fairly quick imo

Yes but if you have the money to buy a 965 in the first place, shouldn't be worried about using more voltage than the average person in order to reach a higher OC

Reason I bought a 920 is Because I don't have that kind of money to spend if it dies soon I mean what was the point in spending that kind of money for a 965 for the same OC as I have with a 920

I use this same logic for those that tell people to buy the most expensive motherboards possible and yet those people won't reach any higher 24/7 stable OC's with those boards than I will with mine or even a slightly cheaper ones at a quote-unquote "safe" voltage.

because it's going to last longer. i can OC the 965 way up there but what's the point if i'm going to burn it out in under a year? The whole point of it is stable, 920 at 4.1 I would not consider stable (working yes but long term no), I would consider that the outer limit.

I'm still goofing around with the 965 I have no idea at what point I'm going to leave it but there's a good chance it will be above 4.1

People have 920s @ 4.2 at less than 1.4v, thats definately long-term stable.

You bought 12GB based off that poorly made review ?. What do you use you're computer for that needs 12GB ?. If you read the topics everyone says 6GB is more than enough.

Uhhh no, I bought 12GB because I wanted 12GB and I need a lot of memory. The review was something I dug up when asked why I got 12GB and did a quick search online.
