Just wondering, why non-ddr2? DDR2 RAM is starting to lower their timings for more performance, matching DDR. I didn't really see any good s775 mobo with DDR400, but I'm not that much of an Intel guy, just wanted to see if you would reconsider DDR2.

i ask how far you want to push because..unless your water cooling..or have a good cpu heatsink/fan your not going to change the voltage too much because it will make the cpu run hotter than if you push it with stock voltage
