Think of more Ram......
System in question is
Xaser III modded w 120's for exhaust (Thanks for good deal Scorpio!)
Gigabyte 7NNXP - Mobile XP/1 GB Corsair XMS XL 2-2-2-5-1T 211x11.5 = 2426.5
2 Raptor 74GB in Raid 0 (tried not doing raid, no better on OC)
Dell 2005 FPW on a XFX 7800GS 440/1300 (card be here tomorrow)upgrade from 9700Pro
about 50c under load, havent tested with new card yet, nor with new exhaust.
I have been thinking about going for another G of ram. I know I can do 2x512 on one channel, and 1gb on other channel for 2gb of dual channel. Fastest 1gb sticks i see are 2-3-2-5. I think I should be able to run that config, @ 2-3-2-5-1T, and still keep the 211FSB.
Is this most likely correct ? The Giga has never given me probs, but it is not an excellent overclocker anyway. Cause I cant give Ram enough juice. As matter of fact at slightly less than rated V (2.72 according to bios) they do 211 (216 in memtest error free, board wont behave tho), max i can feed them is 2.83 or so with bios. Using Preacher bios too.
What should I ask for $$-wise if I decide to sell the XMS I have and just get a matched pair of 1GB sticks.
PQI is priced nicely, as is the Patriot. I dont see Corsair with anything better than 2-3-3. :O(
P.S. Someone reccomend a good internal DVD burner for say 50-60 range. I see no need for a Plextor, lookin at specs. No need to spend 50 really......
