philmar- when you get your build done, maybe you could phil us in on how it went?
But does that relate to any REAL measurable performance improvements at stock? and how much? I've been reading some core duo reviews that keep saying that memory behaves differently on these CR2 boards compared to AMD boards. They say that due to the processor architecture of CPUs like my E6600, the improvements to performance between 533 and 800 MHz RAM is insignificant compared to what was witnessed with AMD boards/CPU combos. But they never say how much of an improvement occurs.Those number (533, 667, 800) are frequencies in MHz- so 800 ram has 50% more bandwidth than 533, which is significant.
