Thanx for the advice, mate!!

The 8 gigs was more a plan for the future.... way far into the future... :lol:
Together with the new CPU I'll be buying then... the octa-core :rofl: :rofl:

But by then we've probably stopped using DDR2's, so I'll settle with 4 gigs!

After some probs to get the q6600 i reordered it but got a q8200, after reading alot of tests it arent as good as q6600 to overclock but still a good oc cpu, payed extra for a speedy deliver so i guess the have 46 hours left for delivery if they can hold the promise?? :?: :?: :?: :?:

Well if i manage to get 3 ghz im happy with that, but i have also seen alot of test and they oc to 3.4ghz on close to stock voltages and so, so my goal might be 3,2ghz then most test shows that numbers?
