Since that I don't know what's your budget, for PSU I highly recommend the PC Power & Cooling Silencer series, the 610W or the 750W for an Intel rig. For 2nd choice I'd say the OCZ Game XStream 700W but that's about it, I wouldn't go with anything else nor recommend.<br><br>
For RAM, the best RAM that you can get for that P5B Deluxe Wi-Fi is the G.Skill DDR2 800 HZ: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231065" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231065</a><br><br>
Corsair RAM used to be great but unfortunately they're not using Micron D9 ICs but some cheap stuff which I'm not recommending. Then there's the Xtreem Memory which you can buy at tankguys.com and they're also some great modules for overclocking.<br><br>
Everything else you've picked seems good, so no change on that.

With my setup I went with GameXStream 700W and the Corsair XMS 2GB kit. For a cooler Zalman 9500 LED or BT, both work great.

I would take these Crucial sticks over the G.Skill Nasgul posted, they use the same D9GMH chips while being $70 cheaper<br />
<br />
Crucial Technology 2GB $230<br />
<a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820148017" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148017</a><br />
<br />
I would take the Scythe Infinity over the BT as it cools 1C-3C better<br />
<br />
Scythe SCINF-1000 $58<br />

Can you post a link, any link of that Crucial RAM showing that indeed they use D9s?<br><br>

2.4v @ 1000mhz with <b>active cooling</b>? That's Ok......<br><br>
Now, 2.25v @ 1000mhz with <b>passive cooling</b> (only): <a href="http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=128537" target="_blank">http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=128537</a><br><br><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="" src="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/Nasgul/G.png" style="border:0px solid;"></div>

I guess but it's hard to say no to the $60 saved

Well, $60 could or is it a lot of money but.......I guess for an E6600 the Crucial will be a good choice also, except I wouldn't get a kit that would need active cooling to reach 1000mhz but that's because it's just me..<br><br>
Nevertheless now I'd like to see if it can reach 450mhz w/o active cooling and less than 2.40v, if so then it's a great choice. If not? hmmm!

2.1v just for how: <a href="http://forums.vr-zone.com/showpost.php?p=2768745&postcount=423" target="_blank">http://forums.vr-zone.com/showpost.p...&postcount=423</a><br />
<br />
I doubted that. Also how can he said that he's using cas 3-4-3 when it clearly shows 4-3-4. <br />
<br />
But I'm now concern with that last page: 2.55v for 429fsb?: <a href="http://forums.vr-zone.com/showpost.php?p=2774488&postcount=426" target="_blank">http://forums.vr-zone.com/showpost.p...&postcount=426</a><br />
<br />
And can't do 1000mhz? The RAM is good but "not" that good for what I can see. That's why I recommend the G.Skill 2GBHZ, 1000mhz on a 2.25v. But I'd certainly would like to get that Crucial for my 2nd rig......for main it will always be the best.

</div>That post was made about an 1 hour and 30 minutes after the post with the 32m pi screenie was made, he/she was probably looking to tighten the timings<br />
<br />
Those timings are pretty tight though which could explain the need for high volts <br />
<br />
Not all G.Skill 2GBHZ can do 1000mhz at 2.25v, like everything else it's all on luck. I'm pretty sure If I look I can find people having problems reaching 1000mhz with anything less than 2.4
