And multiply that by the multiplier on the q6600 which is 9.. which is 3.6Ghz, and i will never overclock it too that much (dont even think it goes to that much), i will most likely OC it to 3ghz..

    Well the P5k deluxe supports DDR2 1066 straight out of the box so all you do is select 1066 in the bios, this means that you will have faster ram and a faster system has I was told that Intel's CPUs need the speed more then they need the timings and by the way my E6600 is sitting at 3.0ghz with 1066 ram and with quad core I would think you will need the extra speed

    You won't be able to tell the difference between PC6400 and PC8500 memory in anything but benchmarks.

    PC8500 is for 1:1 uber overclocking, nothing else.

    wait a sec.
    surely if ur running a quad core (q6600) at 3ghz, it means u have an fsb of about 333(3000/9)
    and a ddr2 800mhz ram can go upto 400fsb.
    SO if a ddr2 800mhz isnt even being used to its full potential, so surely theres no point of getting the 1066 ram?

    :S

    You can technically set the memory to above FSB speeds in the BIOS (kinda like the opposite of a memory divider) but there's really no point unless you're a benchmark freak.
