Look I'm not trying to pee on your parade but it's common known fact that if using all 4 DIMM slots there little to no chance at all to get those sticks to run at full spec.
If it where just the 4 GB it would be fine but with 8GB it not going to happen because it's not the board that does the magic it's the IMC on the CPU ask any of the higher rep people they will most likely tell you the same.

Don't worry I'm not having a shot but if you advertise the 8GB @ 1600 MHz that is misleading advertising, just trying to look out for a fellow OCN'er.

Also what sets you apart from the competition? This is a thing you may need to think about.
Like for example if you spend say $1000 you get free cable sleeving or a gimmick like that. I know it's a bit different here in Australia but I sell a bit of hardware (not a huge amount) but I pride myself of being able to sell hardware cheaper than the competition.
That is because of me being a Microsoft System Builder and having what called an ABN (Australian Business Number and that nets me a 10-20% trade discount.
Like for example I did a rig 8 months ago a simple one, I bought an AMD Athlon x2 5000 ok the shelf price was $125 over here and when I looked on the Tax invoice I had paid $92.

Good point again Smash... However, there are a few guys in the Crosshair IV thread that have 8GB running @ 1600... I plan on trying it in a few weeks I'll let you know what happens. Seems like the Thubans have a better IMC than Deneb, so that maybe the key. Either way, definitely something to consider!

You may have a point I'll go over and have a look, but does the OP want to sell pre OC'd hardware?

Phobos223 nice build log you have quite the eye for detail I like it, I cant wait to see the finished product.
I would love to have the resources to do that stuff but I'll show you my efforts.

Yea that was why I was saying that if he did go with OC on everything, or even just the RAM, would prolly want to promote it as his high end "OC" system or something, just so the consumer would have a heads up!

Thanks for the props on the build! Yea it has been costly, but I have been slowly working on it for like 6 months or so, so the financial impact has been spread out over several pay periods

Nice build also man! Those heatsinks are MEAN lookin!

I would like a guide on how u r setting up coz idk squat about real wc rigs or case modding, which I think is handy in my computer business! True OC.N style.

Hell yea man there are some really good work logs out here on this website, and also ExtremeSystems has some really good ones as well. I read thorugh about 10,000,000 of them before I started on my latest project!

My current build log is the first one I have ever done. It is a lot of fun and I am hoping that someone will get some ideas/info from me just like all the ideas/tips/etc that I got from the guys before me!

The one thing I loved, (and this is weird me saying this about chrome fans because I thought they looked cheap) was the turbine looking fans on your rad and those metal plates holding the fans down, that added class.
