    5-5-5-15 is a really good compromise between bandwidth and latency, but you are on AMD so do what you can with 4-4-4-12, but if your memory stocks at 5-5-5-15... don't try 4-4-4-12... unless you like clearing your CMOS =O

    idk theres options but there nothing like my old board so I dont wanna mess with it. Plus everything runs good with 50+ fps anyway so im good. If I did figure it out I would have it at 3ghz by now lol I will when something comes out that I need the extra speed for tho. Plus im gonna give this to my grandpa soon and hes gonna buy me a Q6600 or E8400.

    Damn. I would've taken that 1950 in a heartbeat for my kids' computer. Would've been a great upgrade from the X700 in there now.

    I would put my 2900 in the kids' computer, but they don't have the psu to run it well. I might just end up buying a new psu for myself, and giving them my 620HX and 2900.

    Its an odd mix you got there... good viddie, mid/high CPU... small yet quality screen but the case and sound card amongst others are a bit odd.

    Once I get my camera back tommorow from sony im going to post pics of my pc. In my oppinion the case is really nice and roomy and for the 2 side ducts i just replaced them with 2 92mm RED LED Zelmen fans. As for the sound card its better than on board and im not into the highend sound card side so the one I have if fine.

    10/10 for your setup but im not much on an intel fan. You should get a higher rated psu even though 600wats is enough, its just my oppinion.
