What about this "must be a tri channel kit" crap that was being said before..

I doubt its true but figured its worth the check.
No, it works in single, dual and triple channel. Triple channel just maximizes performance.

marketing scheme.

its total BS. get whatever 3/6 sticks you want.

if anyone has any questions just ask. we are more than happy to let you guys know everything you want to know about this. ;)
Ya that's what I figured.... It sounded like way too much BS... I was almost hoping that guy would have come back with some evidence.

It looks like the RAM I want is going to set me back the furthest. I too want to know how the MSI board works considering it's the least expensive of the bunch right now.
he has a eclipse,


MSI platinum is the cheapest

I am so frikin jealous of you guys. lol. I need some Core i7 goodness. :cry:

Look again Paulie, that's 1.32V under load, and the stock cooler isn't much better than the Core2Quad stock coolers. Seems about right to me.



That's the Turbo mode
I'm not saying it's incorrect. What I am saying is that it's hard to truly bench the chip with temps like that.

Nice nice 4GHz

all i did was set my memory to SPD, and cranked the BLCK up to 200 with voltage at 1.38, everything else booted up fine. I didn't really do any other tweaking
besides that.


I can get it to boot at 4.3GHz, but idle temps are in the 50's and i didnt try a super pi run...apparently we'll be limited to around 220-230 BCLK due to the uncore/qpi

So far for me, I have found the best method of overclocking is leaving the ram at auto and timings on auto. Manually selecting those is going to be a unpleasant day.
