    The NB cooling issue on P6T is making me wonder. I guess I could shell out an extra $100 and replace all the stock sinks with Thermalright modules, but that does jack...

    All the games that I want to play fast.

  8. Will XP or Vista 32-bit confuse with 8GB installed?

    My next build will have 8GB due to specific apps needing lots of RAM. That app will be running under a 64bit OS.

    However, I will be multibooting and playing games in XP (or Vista) 32bit.

    X38/X48 or P35 w/ DDR2 for Q9450

    This is one of the questions, isn't it?

    Why pay extra and get 40W more heat for X48?

    Is PCI-E 2.0 of any use in the coming years?

    Will X48 boards clock any better than P35 (X38 mostly did...
