And are you sure you can't get a better case? I.e. something with decent cable management

You do not need to OC anything to run 1600Mhz RAM, just set the memory multi to x8. It is often undocumented.

Thanks for that. I'll think about the ram. As for the case, do you have any suggestions? I assume it would be something more expensive, but I don't want to go crazy smile.gif

Yes, it is worth the extra money for the A70

Ok, last question and then I am buying today.

I found a couple of extra bucks in my budget and I am think of upping one of the following choices.

The 1055T to a 1090T

Or my 4GB 1300 ripjaws to 4GB 1600 ECOs

Both make approx 25 euro difference, the amount I managed to find.

Which is better, if I can only do one.

Well.. What I know is. A successfully overclocked 1055t to 4Ghz is surely better than a 4Ghz 1090t BE overclocked by multiplier.

Yeah but now I think about it, I haven't OC'd before, and will probably wait a few months before trying anything. If I get the 1090T I can have a higher clock from the beginning, and it will be easier for a beginner like me.

Do you know why it is best not to change the multiplier?

The difference being that with 1055t you raise the fsb, thereby overclocking your whole system, its a bit more difficult since you need to change your ram settings too, and 1333mhz ram will hold you back.
But tbh if you raise the Multi+ NB , you can get a nice overclock without all the hassle of dealing with fsb, and it is the same thing. Dont let them fool you smile.gif

Take the RAM
Because with 1333Mhz generic RAM you're completely holding back the 1055T from full potential. You will likely never reach 4Ghz on it, because at that bus clock you will definitely need 1600Mhz clock.
