I built my rig about 8 minutes ago. It's my first one. It overclocks pretty well, but i was wondering if better RAM could get mine to a higher OC than 3.6 GHz. Also maybe give me a more stable OC.

get a better h/s
www.sidewindercomputers.com
or
www.heatsinkfactory.com

also you may want some better case fans. they are available at those sites. and yes pc4000 is a beast although patriot is cheaper than kingston and i have also heard better things about ocz. i like my corsair but i should have gotten the 4000 as it was only $.50 more.

prob go with ocz since it has been provin by several peeps on overclock.net to overclock well. and its shiny and the heatsinks are good to have
