Sometimes you've got to overclock your chipset (???!!! perhaps) to support higher ram speeds, but the manufacturer lists them as compatible.

You should see a specific list with brands of memory supported...correct? If it's on the list, it's supported. But I still don't think you'd see much of an increase in performance for the price over 1600mhz.

That's kind of what I was trying to get across, but I wasn't sure how DDR3 and the new Sandy Bridge setup works so I was avoiding comment on that. So if someone can give a definitive that'd be great.

thats kinda why im having trouble with it lol. If it does give a noticeable performance increase (seeing how its only $20-$30 more) then i might go to higher speeds. I can't really find anything using google search because all the links are from 2009 or earlier.

caviar black or blue. Blues are cheaper, about the size i need, but have a lot smaller cache. If im using them for storage drives, does that really matter?

i also get a 3 year warranty on the Blue, but a 90 day warranty on the Black.

Awesome. Glad to help pal, especially since our builds are so similar. I wish you luck on the build. Go ahead and dig this thread back up within the next couple of weeks if you have troubles with the build. Let us know how it went and we'd LOVE pictures! As always, remember cable management when you throw it together--tidy up those wires to promote good airflow!

Whoa, why the hostile response? There is no need for this!

There is no reason you can't be polite and simply state why a 64bit OS makes sense.

Because he's been posting stupid sh!t all over this forum and everyone's getting fed up with it. Especially the regulars. I'm firmly on J03's side on this matter.
