    Corsair is super but it makes a change going for other RAM brands .

    even if the one (team) you picked was dearer.........I'm after the cheapest ram that's reliable and does the job for a very good overclock (not interested in watercooling and entering the record charts).

    but it beats the cell shock pc-6400 stuff. It should be able to beat the 5-5-5-15 timings of the cell shock pc-8000 when overclocked but obviously not for sure.
    Not sure don't forget as you make the memory faster you hive it more power & slacken timings so chances are you'll end up on max volts & somethingg like 5-5-5-15

    nothing wrong with the Dominator if that's what u fancy.

    Well I've already bought an arctic freezer7, so looks like I will have to find a board to fit.......:-)

    But seriously, unless the new boards coming out are a must have, it's gonna be P5B deluxe wifi and dominator (from scan) which seems to be the cheapest ATM, but if cellshock (or other good ones) becomes cheaper will get that.

    when are u looking to buy.

    I'd pay the extra £16 & get the Asus Commando i965 what do you think? 3 of us ordered from scan on friday , at end of month/early Feb AB9 QuadGT Both these boards should be around the same £, are in effect 2nd generation 965 mobos, so include all the learning from the earlier models such as the P5B deluxe plus a host of additional features digital phased Pwmc, crossfire, improved sound etc.,

    you should be fine with arctic freezer7 & memory.

    If you have the money to spend atm it is worth going for the new 965 mobos, they arnt that much more than for example a a wifi/deluxe. £25-30 ish.

    You wont till they come out and when people have opinion's and experiences of them, but a few people have tested them and they say they are very good overclockers, although the benchmarks haven't been released . I haven't seen any people testing the new abit board but I am sure it will be very good too.

    Have spent most of last 3 weeks researching forums reading specs etc..,. Every rebuild id different previous 2 builds it's always been memory which was the difficult component to pin down. In this 1 it's been the mobo. Which chipset 680i, 965/975 RD600 & of course which mobo. Many of the mobos are new so info is a little piecemeal. I've been helped & tried to help the many users i've seen doing the same thing by sharing info links.

    The links i gave above were pretty much my end points, together with this 1, Best E6600 motherboard for £150
    If you follow the links in the 3 rthreads you shoulfd be able to get a decent overview.

    Luck

    Well I suppose one way of looking at it is..... you only lose about £30 if the commando is not up to your expectation, as you would have bought the P5B anyway, and it must be equal to that. Not forgetting the excitement and fun value that must be equal to 15 pints of beer.
    So you aren't interested in waiting for the new C2Ds coming out then?

    Well that's what I've been doing and buying the bits, over the weeks, that the members agree on, finally got the graphic card (X1950) pinned down that I will buy, just left is the MB and CPU (new ones coming out).

    I dont know much about the new c2duo's coming out but a e6300 should be fine. It's only £120 and there is plenty of oc'ing in them.
