    Not true mate. I really do appreciate your help, and everyone else who suggested RAM.

    There is a guy I met on Tomshardware who says that he builds comps for a living, and he has a Zalman 9500 that he isn't using anymore because he bought a 9700 two months after buying the 9500... He says he'll give it to me if I pay for shipping, and that it's in great condition with all the packaging.

    Go for it? How's the clearance on the BX2 Jonny?

    With my old 478 3.0, I got up to 3.9ghz (2xPrime stable) with a Zalman 9500.

    Even overclocked, it was less than half as fast as my e6400 at stock.

    Just some info for digestion.

    So any guides on OCing that you know of?
    What ram depends on how much money you have.

    I actually just placed an order on newegg for the Firestix 6400. Hopefully I get the stuff with D9GMH instead of the Elpida stuff some people have gotten.

    I myself have OC"ed my p4 2.4c to 3.2 for about 4 years straight, no problems. This cpu was ment to run fast, and it shows. OC'ing a northwood is pretty easy even with stock cooling. I use an older, but still fantastic Thermalright solid copper heatsink with a 90mm fan attached to a manual rheostat.

    I just pulled the trigger on a Cooler Master Hyper TX cooler, since the Artic Cooler was out of stock everywhere.

    Ye Paul the hell that CPU will OC high!!! 5GHz IIRC has been reached with it with phase cooling and 4GHz with air. Probably more I don't get time to read endless posts everyday.

    Get COOLFSB, CPUCOOL or CPUFSB and they will allow you to OC from within Windows -- NO need to restart your system. If it isn't stable, the screen will black out and you hit the switch and restart and it rests

    Get the TT Extreme Volcano 12 or SK947, any decent Delta or the Zalman 9700 and you'll be perfect to OC past 3GHz. What you need is the temperatures to be 50C or less under full load without any instability and you have an OC!
    The Arctic Cooler is pretty good too.

    OC is not a game or for fame (although kids make it out to be like that) but electrically its getting the most of what you've got. It can enhance everything to limits far from reach or destroy everything when you think its going good, suddenly. So if you're new to it, you need to read and learn a lot of basics before you attempt it.

    Anything more just ask.
