It'll only make a difference if you want to use a ratio that's NOT 1:1... in that case, you'll probably want RAM that's faster than 800.

You only joined 8 hours ago and most new members don't post epic guides right after joining; they're usually asking how to overclock their Dell's hard drive so they can download faster, so you'll have to excuse my skepticism

 

Thats a simple one, just mount the hard drive upside down, just like you do with the old playstations. :ph34r:

cool guide, i didnt see it when you first posted. One thing though, are the CoreTemp readings correct on C2D dual core's (particulary my 4300 lol) because had used that program a while ago but noticed the temps where MUCH lower than they should be, usually reading around 20 degree's which is probably even cool than ambient lol. So far i have been used ITAT but i noticed that you didnt approve of it in the guide.......

Thanks for kind words. You might wanna try speedfan also (I'd recommend using the latest beta which has MANY temp/CPU detection problems fixed) to see how it compares to the coretemp readings. Also try posting a screenshot of 0.95.4 at the coretemp forums to see what the folks over there have to say about your temps.

 

Although when I tried this, I saw no difference, try switching the state of your PECI in your BIOS and see if that has an effect...

 

Do let us know :)

Well it seems the beta version is alot better than the other version i was using. It reads my temps about 2-3 degrees lower than ITAT which i suppose is ok, however i'll let the screen shot do the talking for speedfan lol

Temp1: 39
Temp2: 15
Temp3: -2
HD0: 31
Core0: 23 
Core1: 24

 

Looks good to me... I would just switch off Temp2 and Temp3. I'm assuming that Temp1 is your NB temp. BTW, you can rename them in the software, e.g. Temp1 rename to NB Temp. What does CT 0.95.4 report?

but doesnt 23/24 seems a bit low? like that is basically room temp. CT and ITAT reported about 40ish when i looked.

 

And the weird things i meant in that screen shot where the Vcore of 1.89v, the 15 degree temp and the 0v +12v rail lol!
