In Topic: Mushkin RAM Not Recognized Correctly (Help!)

Mushkin sets their SPD's so that the memory will boot every time including after a hosed overclock. This reduces the amount of calls for RMAs. You would need to manually set your memory to 1066MHz

Does this look like your BIOShere?

Yes that is the one.

RAM speeds are determined by your motherboard settings. Default is usually DDR2-800. Overclocking or changing your RAM divider will change your RAM speeds.

So which settings would I touch in the BIOS to configure the setting to the recommended state? (Note: Motherboard is the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P)

Why 2 500GB harddrives? A single terabyte is going to be cheaper.

That memory is pretty expensive as DDR2 goes (not saying it won't be good), but, if you save $40 on hard drives and $10 or $20 on the memory (say, here), it would put you in the GTX 275 or HD 4890 range - for full lifetime warranty cards. There are also some less expensive 4890's like the sapphire

The only reason why I planned to buy 2 hard drives is to run Raid 0. Do you think running raid is worth it, or just go buy a single drive?

Will do on the aftermarket cooler. One question though, do you think that flashing the P45-UD3P bios is worth it? This'll be my first build and I don't want to take the chance and mess up the bios chip. Even though it has the double bios chip feature. I checked on the site and I don't think the updates will benefit me in anyway. Thanks for the fast responses too, I can always rely on the overclockersclub forum to help me out. :)
