So you have 2x1GB sticks of ram, speed is 667Mhz(PC2-5300)

Now, here is the surprise

You already can run your 2 sticks in Dual channel mode,

Open CPU-Z to the memory tab (see attached picture)

Attachment 141917

now if the tab says channels #: dual and DC mode symmetric then you already are running your ram in DC mode

if not...then simply do the following

insert the first stick of RAM in DIMM 0 (color yellow) and the second stick of RAM in DIMM 2 (color yellow too) now you have your DRAM running DC mode

just reopen CPU-Z to the memory tab and make sure its says what you see in the picture

Great. So now I'll install Win7 64bit. As for when I get the other 2GB, should I get a 2GB stick or 2x1GB sticks? Also, is there any specific ones that will run great or somethin? I would be happy to know.

see this picture too...

Attachment 141928

This shows why i said higher FSB speed = faster CPU/System

as you can see from the picture...at 333Mhz FSB which is in fact 1333Mhz, my CPU can provide around 10GB/s of bandwidth my my 4GB DRAM running in dual channel mode can supply around 12GB/s of bandwidth so i am using close to 80% of my DRAM bandwidth

without dual channel, my DRAM can only provide close to 6GB/s of bandwidth and that is why Dual channel is important

i suggest Kingston because i've been using them for 5 years now (different models and speeds) and i am happy with their price/performance...but regardless of what memory you end up using, i suggest that you take out those 2 cheap sticks and purchase a good PC2-6400 (800Mhz, or higher speed) 2x2GB kit (of the same type/brand name/speed) and get them running in dc mode...this will leave you with 2 more free DIMM slots to upgrade from 4GB to 8GB or 16GB

I changed my CPU VTT to 1.2 (from 1.3) and I'm still stable.

However, I noticed one annoying issue tonight, and I'm bothered.

This is done on my HTPC. I have been ripping a ton of my DVD's to an internal HDD with DVD Shrink. Usually, it takes 20 seconds or so to Open the disc, and less than 15 minutes (usually around 10) to backup the disc to the HDD.

Tonight, after making all these overclock settings, a DVD that I ripped took nearly two minutes to open, and about 37(!!!) minutes to backup to the HDD!

I can't think of any changes to the machine, outside of the overclock settings. What would be causing that from changing the settings?

If your overclock is 100% stable (8h prime95 testing) then its more like a DVD drive problem than an overclock issue because Overclocking once stable, only serve to make your system faster not slower, unless overclocking is also automatically increasing the speed of your south-bridge components such as IDE and SATA ports, but i highly doubt it.

Try another drive and see what happens

You been ripping a lot of DVD's maybe its time to defragment your drive

I'll try a defrag. It hasn't been *that* long since I ran one on the drive, but, maybe it's time for another one.

Hopefully, it was just that disc. I had ripped prolly 100 DVD's without issue in the weeks leading up to the overclock. And now, this was the first DVD I've ripped since the overclock. I'll run a few more through in the next couple nights.

Just for reference, I have two HDD's; one with my OS (Windows 7 64-bit) and programs, and the other is strictly a "media drive". I store all the DVD's, music, games, etc. on that drive.

Thanks for the posts, guys.

hi mate...I've been going over your motherboard's manual and i found this important paragraph

"When enabling Dual Channel mode with two or four memory modules, it is recommended that memory of the same capacity, brand, speed, and chips be used and installed in the same colored DDR2 sockets for optimum performance"

So your motherboard is just like mine, DC mode won't be at its best unless you install your 2 sticks of ram in the same colored DDR2 sockets...so install the 2x1Gb DDR2 you have in either the 2 yellow socket or the 2 red sockets for optimum DC performance
