@ DefecT. Ok, I'm tired or maybe I didn't know in the first place but what's an HTPC case? High Tech Personal Computer?
HTPC= Home Theater PC and yes it is nice! If it stays stable then yes. I've been playing CoD WaW all morning without a hiccup, but I'll probably go down to 3.8 for reliability. The really nice thing is not only is the little 550 running over 4gigs but the ram is at 1736! That's a 136 Mhz overclock! Impressive! Now I did have to loosen the timings a bit to 11-11-11-28 to get it done, but It's chugging along.

Rockr. That is a AWESOME overclock. I have the older motherboard with mine but I still run it 3.8 stable. That 550 BE is best CPU AMD has right now for price vs. Performance. I love mine. Its in the Scout at this moment and it surfs the internet with the wife perfectly.. LOL..

Thanks. Yeah, most ram will clock up to it's next stepping, 1333 to 1600, 1600 to 1866, 1866 to 2000. Sometimes it has to be ram fan cooled to make it though, those more likely to O/C are Mushkin, G skill, Corsair's domiator series, the Patriots with the coolers and now the OCZ's with the heat pipe/fin set are all good for O/C'ing. Especially any set with a heatspreader designed to move the heat up and off the chips. Of course mobos and the processor change everything, Mindy's won't go above 1600.

The downside is you usually have to change the timings as you found out. You may be able to get 9-9-9-24 but you have to change the refresh to 2t. I shifted mine down to 1t but it went to 9-8-8-48-98 at 1.65v instead of 9-9-9-24-88 at 1.75v speed of 1910Mhz, things took longer to load and the internet was visibly slower at loading so I changed it back. My friend said I could get the Mushkin I originally wanted and have quicker timings but he's also the one that did the study that showed that only 50% of the people tested really noticed a difference.

These are the ones: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226117
that's more than half the price of a video card though, something I'd rather have than quick ram. Oh & when my system was built these were all recalled because they were having problems staying stable at the rated speed.

Unlike Intel the AMD IMC (integrated memory controller) doesn't handle RAM over 1600 well. So I'm very pleased with 1736 with the timings I'm running. When I first mentioned last year before X-mas about building this rig E suggested the GSkill and boy he was right! Thanks General! I haven't stress tested it yet so some may say I'm not stable, but as long as I don't crash playing my games at full Image quality I call it stable enough. I tried it with the third and fourth cores unlocked, but she didn't do so well; so I backed it back down to just two.

E you'll always the the man responsible for this superb gathering of people from around the globe, not through your understanding of technology, but your understanding of people and how to treat them. I bow to your humility and grace and stand tall to salute your leadership and ability to rally such good folks under one idea. That no matter what everyone here has a say. No matter how foolish we all can be sometimes.

Huh, that's pretty interesting because as I was writing it, I thought, maybe it's different, well, I know it's different with AMD no matter what but I wasn't sure how. Yeah, the one really great thing intel did with it's latest lineups was getting rid of the Northbridge and using a QPI instead.

Next months Maximum PC will have a hands on review of the AMD six core, we'll see how it turns out. This month they compared the i-3 with the AMD equivalent and AMD kicked intels backside and for $13- less.

I agree with only being concerned about the games. I don't give a Rodents Behind if it can run Prime95 for 24 hours. If it can play my games at high res with a fairly high framerate and doesn't crash, I'm good. Oh & it has to hold my music for tranferring to my iPod without crashing either when it syncs.

I ask that you stay here, come here when you're feeling blue & strike up a discussion. Oh, seeing as what page we're on, I also suggest you get some ideas about the rapidly approaching Page 1000.

Yeah, what Rockr said & don't forget about the Global part. We have members in Sweeden, U.S.A., U.K., AU (which is also the abbr for gold, South Africa... Did I leave anyone out?

I am finding my G-Skill Ripjaws are outstanding, and... my 'Lil Scout that Could' is definetely keep these sticks cool!

I have excellent airflow coming though my Scout!

I've not tried pushing them over 1600 yet, in fact at the moment I have them set via BIOS to default as 1333; and then using that as the starting point for Overclocking my x4 955BE.

At the moment, after my current CPU overclock, these Ripjaws running at 1500mhz, with the default timings and default DRam voltage.

CPU Multiplier at x17.0; HT Link at 1800 and Northbridge at 2480mhz... all with the CPU at 1.450 on the core voltage; running at 3820mhz.

Working on tweaking that up a bit, hoping to reach that 4ghz mark, but the voltages are being finicky.

One things for sure though, my Scout is without a doubt keeping things nice and cool!
