Just got some better Ram from OCN user: iCrap! 2x 2GB of PC2-6400 which will put me up to 6GB @ 400mhz(800) biggrin.gif Currently im only running 3GB @ 233mhz rolleyes.gif

Got board so I bumped the 5200+ CPU up to 240x13.5= 3.42Ghz and its cool and stable! Also bumped the ram from 266 to 360(720) with no voltage and they are stable as well! Running alot better and not using as much RAM either! Caint wait to get the new RAM so I push from 800 to maybe the boards max of 1066! thumb.gif Also im either gonna keep the x86 platform and do a RAM disk or maybe upgrade to 64bit since I will have 6GB ram! biggrin.gif
