    Recommended O/C memory for E6300 on asus P5KPL.

    Hey guys, I wanted to upgrade my measly 2gb Kingstone RAM (PC2 5300 I think...533mh/z anyway but lowest I can choose is 677 in mobo settings I think)

    Now currently its at 333 fsb (2,33gh/z) and will not go over that. My board will support up to 1600 fsb (in overclokcing only) and memory of up to 1066 mh/z.
    I am thinking 4gb even though I have a 32 bit version of XP, because if in the future I would like a win 7 then I will have some more ram ready. + I will always have whatever it will take from that 4th gig of memory on my system.

    And do you think I will need anything else in particular to speed my cpu up? Im not changing the cpu itself and I got a decent heatsink on it already. And gpu I changed recently, SATA slots ran out and any expensive hardware/software is out of question. So any ideas?
    Current setup:
    CPU: i5 3570k @ 4.2ghz (100x42) Cooled with: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO heatsink with the stock EVO fan.
    MOBO: Asrock Extreme4-M Z77
    RAM: 8GB Sasung Green 30nm @ 1600mhz
    GPU: Radeon HD7950 Twin Frozr III, 3GB GDDR5
    HDD: Seagate 160GB for Windows, 2x WD Caviar Blue 1TB RAID0 for everything else
    SOUND: Onboard
    PSU: 700W

    At this point I think the only way you'll see any real world gains without swapping CPU / mobo is to get yourself an SSD.
    CPU: 3570k @ 4.4 GHz
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 660
    RAM: 8 GB Crucial Ballistix Tactical @ 2133 MHz (10-9-10-24 w/1.50v)
    MOBO: ASRock Extreme4 Z77
    SSD: OCZ Vector 128 GB
    PSU: Antec BP 550w

    Right..... I was specifically asking about memory since I got stuck at 1333 rated fsb and I want to push it higher. I believe my setup can and will manage that. Its not just about gain in speed or stuff, I want my clocks higher.

    Anyway, I cant affor an SSD - Im not made of money.... Ill leave that to my future PCs, maybe all drives I will have will be SSD in RAID. Aaah, dreams...
