Thanks, I saw that, but I never buy off the Amazon marketplace any more, because I've had a bad experience once with them and Amazon covered it up by deleting my negative feedback. I definitely want all my memory slots populated, so I'll just have to get some new low profile RAM, lol qubit gives himself another kick for not doing that in the first place. n00b btw, I've just got adventerous with that tiny Akasa K25 fitted and set the BIOS to 4.5GHz: it worked nice and stable (no extra voltage applied) but the fan revs kept shooting up to high/max and back down again, depending on the load. Tried a little gaming and the CPU stuck at around 60C with the fan spinning fast. Of course, trying IntelBurn or similar with that cooler strapped on is a no-go (yes, I did try and it's a no-go even at stock). Now I've underclocked it to 1.6GHz (slowest it'll go) with a turbo of 1.7GHz to get a feel for it like that. That little Akasa is sufficient for 1.6GHz though, with the CPU running at at around 46C. Ultimately, I still can't quite decide what high-end cooler to get just now. That Thermalright Silver Arrow cooler is either slightly better or slightly worse than the D14, depending on which review one reads.
