Its supposed to be pretty good memory though as it is the EL Platinum edition Rev.2 w/ramsink with timings of 2-3-2-5. With the combination of parts I have whats the best way to start, I really dont wanna fry any of my equipment and am not looking to get crazy overclock, 3.1 would be perfect on air, but I would settle for 3 i guess, if its 2.9 ghz then i might as well leave it at stock (2.8).
I agree with JC but a better than stock cooling kit makes a huge difference in overclock capability and for the socket 939 relatively cheap.
