smokincpu Posted September 10, 2008 Share Posted September 10, 2008 Board:evga 790i FTW CPU: QX9770 or QX9650 - narrowed it down to one of these two My Goal: I would like to have 1800mhz FSB as well as the RAM at 1800mhz - linked and stable. I would like the system itself to be at or around 4ghz. For these cpu's I believe this is a minimal overclock correct? I want to find the happy medium where i can run 24/7 without shortening the life of my hardware. Question is which RAM do you think I should go with with the board and goals I have? Corsair, Corsair or Corsair? 1600, 1800 or 2000? I am planning on having 4gb total (2x2gb) I commend you guys, gettin all this stuff straight is overwhelming to say the least, and I dont even have my hardware yet!! I am trying to get it right the first time and have all my probs be config related and not hardware related once I get everything in my box. This will be air cooled with an Antec 1200 with full fan complement and a Thermaltake Ultra 120 extreme cooler w/attached fan @ 1800rpm Thanks all, your knowledge is so appreciated. Smokincpu PS I should add if anyone has specific experience with this board and hardware I would love to know what settings on the mobo you feel would achieve this, timings, voltage, etc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
