You can always use RAM that's faster than the mobo supports. It will only run at the supported speed at stock, but the "extra" speed gives you lots of room to overclock. For example, I'm using DDR400 in a board that supports DDR400. To overclock, I have to exceed the spec speeds of my RAM. If I used DDR500, I could overclock 25% without exceeding the stock specs. High quality products can often go well beyond their specs, so gage your purchase based on your planned/hopeful overclock (i.e. don't spend tons of money on RAM that will run great at DDR600 if you're only planning on going to DDR500 as you can find good DDR500-quality RAM cheaper).

I just baught "Kingmax PC4000 HardCore 500Mhz 1GB (2 x 512Mb) Dual Channel" For £99.83. (Cheapest I could find)
Hopefully this will do the job, and I didn't just waste 100 quid.

My new RAM, case and keyboard arrived today, its all rigged up, I'm at 2.93GHz on the normal Intel cooling fan, and... Now I have to go -Just reached 70c (Full load, (I'm folding =D)) on one of the sensors-, but yeah, I won't be able to go higher than this untill I find out how to increase the voltage, because the bios doesnt give the option, at just at 2.93 its down to 1.28v, if anyone could tell me how to increase the voltage on the ASRock P4VT8+, it would be very much appriciated -Waits for the Bigwater SE to arrive-

P.S: Appologies for the double post, firstly I forgot, but now when I think of it, I thought it a good idea that it bumped my post.
