Hey Dippy, I think you should add something about memory overclocking differences on A64 platform when using 2x512Mb and 4x512Mb and the limitations involved. As it *SHOULD* be generally known that 4x512Mb does not overclock as well as 2x512Mb does and also note people who might be buying four pieces of higher binned 512Mb modules (PC4400, PC4800, etc) that integrated memory controller limits overclocking more and motherboards will do differences here as well.

Good point about x number of sticks of ram better/worse than others. Also non DDR2 single sided sticks are noted/tested to work best for dual channel systems while overclocking and ONE stick of single sided ram has provided an increase in stability in some chipsets compared to others while overclocking.

I'll add a blurb on CPC. Thanks! :)
