Don't buy a 6gb kit as you need to keep RAM in pairs for an AMD processor. 2x2gb, 2x4gb, 4x2gb, 4x4gb are the kits you should be looking for. The AMD processors do *not* support triple-channel memory.
For voltages, they vary depending on motherboard, but see if you can get them lowered. CPU-NB you may want to see if its stable at 1.425 or 1.45, and see if you can lower the CPU voltages a bit as well and still be stable. That will help lower your temps. I'm surprised they're that high myself with an H70 but I've not gotten a x6 yet to play with. Main thing is lower them 1 notch at a time, then test. If it's stable, lower again, test, repeat. When its unstable, go back to the previous setting, then test the next thing. To me that's backwards, I start from stock speeds then go up as its safer IMO. Regardless, nice job overclocking so far, now to optimize it Edited by iamwardicus - 2/2/11 at 4:58am
