    What ram set up should I use.

    Since the ASUS P5B WIFI deluxe MOBO accepts Kingston HyperX PC-8500 1066mhz , would it better to stay with a dual (2X512) OCZ PC-6400 800mhz Special Ops Edition or go with a single HyperX PC-8500. It's too expensive to get a dual setup in the HyperX kingston. I know dual channel has a speed and performance advantage over single channel, but will the additional speed and low latency of the HyperX out perform the optional dual PC-6400 setup?
    Kingston's HyperX PC-8500 is capable of 3-4-3-10 at 2.4v at default clock speeds. And can be overclocked to 1116mhz with relaxed latencies at 2.4v. which is the max voltage that the P5B deluxe MOBO can accomplish with ram. Any feed back will be helpful!
    Thank you,
    I can't understand why those of us who know the least, think of themselves to know the most!

    Basically get some PC2-6400 stuff its cheap and it overclocks to 1Ghz and beyond
    Don't get OCZ though, they are not as good at overclocking as most, I woiuld be looking at either GSKill HZ, GeIL or some Corsair stuff rated at PC2-6400.. and to be fair memory timings mean nothing on core 2 duo. I have my Geil PC2-6400 running at PC2-8500 5-5-5-15 at 2.3V so I can easily go higher.

    Why the dual? Is not the HyperX PC-8500 capable of those timings and frequencies above that of the "any"Pc-6400. With a bios update pushing the voltage from 2.4 to 2.6 yeild far better potential in the PC-8500? Right now you are overclocking your ram to reach the default clock speeds of the PC-8500. So isn't the higher frequency potential greater on the HyperX. HyperX should probably reach frequency ranges of PC-9000 if there was such a thing. PC-8500 running at default clock settings would run cooler than a overclocked PC-6400 at 1066mhz and be alot more stable right? I not sure but I guess I'm looking for a explanation why the dual setup would perform better than the single setup at higher and more stable non-overclock and overclocks.
