Thanks for both answers.
@RagingCain I have had a look there but there is no 2x4GB combination listed there and I want just two slots used.
@CyGnus I really need 8GB as well as you say I am on hi-res image diting and CAD prototyping.

go with with what i did 2 X 4gb Sticks and find the timings that work for you.I have been told and according to some ratings i have seen that the G.Skill Ripjaw series is one of the the best

Edit : just for kicks i checked newegg for ya on the G.skill 2 X 4gb $184.00 / 8-8-8-24 timing

I recently got the IV Formula for my new build. Works great but I am having trouble getting the internal spidf to work. I have it hooked up to go to my video card so sound will go through the HDMI but its not working. I used the same video card on a previous build and spdif working on a separate ASUS sound card but I was hoping I could use the on-board sound and do the same. Anyone have a settings or suggestions?

Thanks

How much does a full & decent setup cost (estimated)?

Optional GPU blocks for 5870s. They can be added later and also the boards heatsink would be replaced, so knowing that I need room for expansion, what should I be looking to expect on the bill?
Water is fun

As for GPU blocks, I'd recommend a standalone block. It will hold its value longer, it doesn't cost as much, and you can use it on future GPU's.

A whole setup should run you around $350-400 if you buy new.

yeah the 245 is what I was talking about. Leaving the multiplier at stock and trying to hit the same core speed .

well this seems to be my max FSB. I need a bit more time to get other things up as well as find the best middle ground. Voltage is high I know! I can run 3000NB @ 3.6Ghz for sure but did not test higher yet. Ram just came in today so in maybe a week I should have this all set for the max possible. I think I can hit 4.2 GHZ but it would be at a memory sacrifice. I have a feeling that I am going to end up around 3.9Ghz even though I would love to be running 24/7 @ 4GHz or better. I just dont see the reason of running that If overall it would be slower then running say 3.7Ghz.

not bad. Cable management is a little better then mine but it is really hard to hide mine.

So after taking mine apart to clean out the PSU and run the wiring how I wanted, here is how she looks.



Pics are a little blury gonna see If I can find my tripod. Night shot as soon as it gets dark.

And I need to remove the rest of the blue LED's on my rad fans and e-mail Gskill and ask them W T F is with Blue LED's for a memory kit that is primary red ?!?

yea I just dont understand the logic there. Worst case I buy some red ones and remove then reapply the stickers. Best case Gskill is Kick A$$ and sends me some red fans. I already know their ram is Kick A$$ but we will see if they are
