    Add another fan to that H50 for a push/pull config and watch your CPU temps go down.

    it was my understanding that the x6 could not go past 1600mhz dram. i thought any thing past that would do nothing untill the bulldozer?

    lol you're mis-informed, check out my sig.

    Just ordered 2x4GB G.Skill DDR3-2133, will report back on how the Thuban X6 handles the set.

    OP, i have the same G.Skill RAM set as you, I'd be interested to know if you have been able to go above x234 on the FSB, or I'd welcome any tips on my current configuration from anyone. First post, thanks.

    Nemesis, I have 4 each of G.Skill Sniper 1866 RAM F3-14900CL9-4GBSR, i was stable at 1866 with all 16GB, but want to overclock my cpu further and just removed 8GB since I went overboard with it anyway....

    ok, you'll get better overclocking results with only two dimms populated.
    I actually have the BXL set, which is the RipjawsX series.
    A good (slight) overclock and stepping platform with 1866 memory is setting the CPU clock to 235.
    You want the CPU/NB to sync with the memory speed, so set it to the 2800+ option, with CPU/NB voltage@ 1.30v.
    I'm assuming the kit you have are 1.50v modules, so you will probably need to set your DRAM voltage in the 1.565-1.575v range.
    Now just use your CPU multiplier to change the CPU frequency and adjust the CPU voltage accordingly.

    Hi I was wondering what is a good set of DDR 3 RAM to get I've used Corsair and knew G. Skill to be good as well. Currently was using Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) cause it was free however since they are triple channel they ran single channel and caused much hicups. If you read my post that I have only had a single response to I got windows and most things stable with two of the sticks but I'm at the point where 1. I'd like more than just 4GB. 2. I would like better MHz (these are 1333 by default). 3. Don't want to mix and match RAM of different models and brands. So maybe a suggestion those G.Skill's look quite nice. I can relist my specs or my other post has quite of bit of details of my problems.
