    Feel like a right noob asking this but I'm upgrading from 4GB to 8GB (4X2GB) ram and I know I probably need to up the voltage a bit to keep things stable.

    Because it's at least two years since I did any clocking I'm just checking, it IS the NB volts I need to increase, isn't it? :o

    Assuming it is, anyone else running such a set up and how much extra did you have to give it?

    I had the same board on my previous build with 8GB mem. All i did was make sure i was using the latest bios and put my memory at 2.1v and it worked a charm.
    The memory was OCZ Platinum Quad pack 6400

    Good luck
