I don't have any experience with OCing Corsair but would guess these would run ok if all your looking for is 8GBs of Ram. Couldn't say either way how they OC but wouldn't be surprised if they leave you with that feeling of "I wish I had bought something more" if you're looking to push the OC on them.

AMD has a nice sweet spot at or just above 1600MHz (but I'd be looking for CL7 at least) so yes there would be a plus to get off of the 1333MHz that you should notice. But the bigger gains will show with tighter timings. I wouldn't go CL9 myself but if it's something you already have, than heck ya throw it in. If you're looking to purchase 1600 than look for tighter timings that's always the key. Might cost a little more, but much more bang for the buck.

Asus just released bios version 2002 (Formula IV) ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/mb/so...ir_IV_Formula/

Had it running before, but it gave some USB issues. Hope they fixed that now.

Yeah that's one of the things that drives me nuts with PCP II. If you accidentally close any of the gauges then it's a pain in the keester to get back. I just open up the manager and look to the scroll window that gives me the option of where to show it scroll it to any of them and it should give you a fresh set of gauges to work with.

If that doesn't do it, I've repaired it through uninstallation process in Win 7. I've gotten my issues pretty much hammered out with it though by running it in Administrator mode. You'd think ASUS would have worked with Microsoft to get it to work properly the first time. But meh, it works so I won't let it annoy me.

Don't worry bout stock on this board. Take your time and enjoy your CPU and your board. There is PLENTY of time for OC'ing. my 955 isn't overclocked due to insufficient cooling at the moment.

Mine Idles the same temps as it did at 3.8Ghz with my Frio still need to test for stability and I'll see if I can get those windows back up when I get home from work today thanks Ceadder.

Edit: Is the X-Fi Titanium HD Soundcard better than the onboard by leaps and bounds or no? If it's ultra cheap at my Best Buy I may get one if it makes a Difference
