By the way, Magus how works your Radeon HD5770?

If you buy another 4GB kit of the same ram/part number, you shouldn't have any dramas.

the HD5770 is good. The only game I play at the moment is Mass Effect 2 and I can play it on my 24" monitor at max resolution quite well... not sure what teh FPS is but it looks good to me so i dont really care...

I also have it running to a 36" LCD TV that I have a TV tuner card using the HDMI output and its great, I love HDMI out since I dont need to worry about running additional cables for the 5.1 audio.

It runs well for what I have and use it for... How ever I fold... ( WHATS Folding?? ) and at the moment ATi cards dont work as well.. But I am in the works for saving up for a 5870... I think the second release will be out by the time I can have the $$ for one. Thinking off getting an Eyefinity setup and get the display port only card (has 6 DP out back).

Will I need to reset BIOS and timings of old RAM?

I wanted to do it as soon as I receive all parts, but I filled all things that I'm sure. Have you OC'ed that Radeon?

I have done some OC... I think it does not like having such large displays because i get horazontal bars of "blip" not sure how else to explain it... when its OC to much.. I got up to 925 MHz and 1350 MHz on memory.., I think I would have gone with Spahire but have had no issues with XFX thus far! and they even sent me a free x-fire connection when asked with no shipping or other charges.

Damn... Too much difficult words in foreign language. But I get essential of it, cooling of your card was not good enough, aight?

You can add another 4 gb fine
If you've already set your ram timings etc then it should be fine

What you want to do is going into the MIT section on the BIOS page, go down to 'System Voltage' and change that from auto to manual, go to DRAM Voltage Control and set it to 1.650v.
Now go back up the list and press enter when you reach DRAM Configuration. Go down to DDR3 Timing Items and set it to manual, then set CAS# Latency to 8, RAS to CAS R/W Delay to 8, Row Precharge Time to 8, Minimum RAS Active Time to 24 and Row Cycle Time to 27.
You should be good to go.

After that, you should think about overclocking your northbridge.
In the MIT section go to CPU Northbridge Freq to manual to change the multiplier until it's 2400MHz or 2600MHz.
You'll need to adjust the voltage, so go down to CPU NB VID Control and start upping the voltage slightly and testing; for reference i'm running my northbridge @ 2600 MHz with 1.250v.

Hope that helps

After that operation my memory will runs on 1600MHz I guess, right? Tell me, after changing voltage will "wattage" (? I mean if PC will takes more electricity) increase? And I have to set all this changes at once from for example 8 to 24 or go 1 by 1? and test it after any change? Or just set it as u told and then test it.

Over clocking does pull more power, an OC AMD X4 can pull as much as 200 - 240 watts (from what I have seen)

The voltage, the board just defaults to low, DDR3 needs more voltage then what the board gives. my memory specs 1.65 V as operating, but the board goes into a "warning" mode when over 1.6V on memory. take it there anyway.

you can set the memory and not worry, because that is what it is rated for. if you have problems at those settings then you will need to RMA. I know English is a second language (or 3rd, 4th...ect) and I dont want to sound like a jerk, it may help on some of the more technical questions to have help? somethings can not be simplified to much.

It sounds like you are not familiar with trimmings on memory. there are specs of 8-8-8-8-24 or 7-7-7-7-23 or any combination really. these numbers are the time in uS (micro seconds) I believe or it might be Nano-seconds, either way its the time to read, write, store, lock, ect that the memory can handle. each memory should have gone through testing that it meats at least the trimmings advertised.

you can run 2 sticks at 1600MHz but when you get 2 more it will drop down to 1333MHz unless you start over-clocking the memory. I have not done that so can not offer any advice.

I would set the memory and then run a series of stress tests like Prime 95 mixed, ITB (Intel Burn Test) ect to make sure stable. you can google or look here for times, 24 hours of prime and 20+ passes (i think people like to use 100 passes for final stability) of ITB should be enough unless you want to go crazy.

Then start upping the voltage and speed of the North-bridge with every 100 MHz run a fast stability test, 2-3 hours of prime 5-10 passes of ITB. if its stable then up the speed some more and repeat.

Over-Clocking is an art which is not an exact science. not all boards or chips are the same. Over-clocking is due to the fact that most chips are built to be faster but due to manufacturing issues there is some loss that is not equal on all chips when the silicon is "processed" for making the transistors. this means that manufactures need to make sure all chips are faster so in the worst case its still the speed it says it can go. that is why some chips people can get high 800MHz+ and other "exact same chips" people can only get a few 100MHz higher.

take it slow and you will be amazed at how much faster you can get it to run.

Sorry for the long post.
