Well, I already spent some bread getting myself a Raptor and a 6600GT vid card so I think my rig will be plenty fast in those departments. I was wondering if you could test the effects of changing the different dividers available on the mobo without changing the multi/HTT. As an example, I am running at 255 X 9 and using the 133 divider to keep the ram below 200. Would getting memory that would allow me to use the 166 divider show any improvement in gaming or encoding? I don't recall any reviews that tested the effects of dividers on the performance of a rig. Thanks.

No, it does not matter; and not much even with tight timing.

well, i shouldn't be telling you this i think, but anyhow, a mate of mine made an optimised version of windows xp, i still have the reg file somewhere on my comp which has most of the reg edits, one of them in there is the one i talked about, i'll search it and i'll give you the edit, maybe something to be tested by [M] maybe it might help out on certain benchmarks too? (for those benchlovers out there )

Keep the core system in RAM
Windows XP takes portions of the operating system, applications, and data files that aren't currently needed in RAM and temporarily stores the data on the hard disk in the paging file. During a normal computing session, Windows regularly moves data back and forth from RAM and the paging file.
If you have a considerable amount of RAM in your system--512 MB or more--you can improve system performance by preventing the OS from sending user-mode and kernel-mode drivers, as well as kernel-mode system code, to the paging file.
You can do so by changing a setting in the registry. Here's how:
Launch the Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\
Session Manager\Memory Management.
Double-click DisablePagingExecutive DWORD value.
Change the value in the Value Data text box from 0 to 1, and click OK.
Close the Registry Editor.
You may need to restart the system or log out of Windows XP for the change to take effect.
Note: Editing the registry is risky, so be sure you have a verified backup before making any changes.
