    I like most on here am anticipating the release of the conroe.

    Currently I have a Msi 955x with a 950 cpu. Im using corsair value ram 2gb worth (2 x 2x512mb ddr667). Ive read conflicting reviews as to whether you can overclock the value ram or not.

    I know I will need a new motherbaord when conroe arrives...ill sell soonish to get a good price for my goods. By hard going back to a amd 2800 setup though :(

    Im fairly new to overclocking but want to try it when i get the conroe. Am I best sticking with what I have or buying something else?

    Recommendations are appreciated.

    HI there

    We had Corsair PC2-8500 running at over 1200MHz stable which is good as its only rated for 1000Mhz. :)

    We've also now got full ranges from Crucial, Corsair and G.Skill available too. Along with some GeIL modules and some OCZ modules too. There is a good selection at OcUK. :)
