If you don't let go of the shift key you'll get things other than numbers. (hence the "^GB" in the title, lol.)

I volunteer to proof-read OCC articles.

To reach the 1800MHz speed required, an increase of the bclock to 150MHz. What does this sentence mean? I think you wished to say "an increase to the...."
While big speeds are always nice when you are chasing records some people want don't overclock there systems...It's spelled "their" not there.

You guys do a great job and this is my favorite hardware site. If I can help with making a great product better, count me in!

Good review btw, I'm still trying to figure out what all the memory settings mean in my ASUS Rampage III Extreme :whistling:

Intel i7 975 Extreme Edition CPU
ASUS Rampage III Extreme MB
6GB Kingston HyperX DDR3
Dual EVGA GTX 560s in SLI
1 x 32GB Kingston SSD (boot drive)
2 X 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blacks in Raid 1 (SATA 6 Gb/s)
Cooler Master HAF X case

I finally just used the auto setting with the only manual change being to the speed of the RAM. It defaulted to 1333 when it should have been 1600. It's been working great for several days now. I have the Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3/2G.

Can't believe there's 3 pages of BIOS settings for DRAM for gawd's sake :rolleyes:

Well my understanding is that the DRAM settings are comprehensive for a reason - it's the very best MOBO out there by far. Keep your eyes peeled around here :)

I think you and the whole world are trying to figure that out. You need a real good understanding of what each setting does and how it impacts others.
