Cool CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10B - Can it be O/C?

Hi Gents,

It's been a while but I'm back.

But I made...

Sly ...it all seems to be married quite well.

Thanks for the inputs Gents. ;):

Ram Guy,

Thanks for the response but as I said above "I've pretty much settled in on a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Rev 1.03 Motherboard and an Intel i5 2500K CPU. " (Bolding is new)

Gents,

I appreciate the input but my son fills a 500 Gig Drive with just Game stuff (and that's not all of them installed). A 120 Gig Drive just won't cut it and therefore I looked to this...

I don't disagree but the vendors here are moving away (already) from 64 Gig SSDs => and the ones they stock seem to be far more $ / Gig than the 120 Gig Units. I was quoted a 64 Gig (non-Corsair) for...

Is it really not working or...
