Seriously man...read the guide and get to know your processor. All the information is here for your help, but we don't have the time to OC every single person's processor individually.
I am sure if you read the guide, look up your processor specs to make sure of OK ranges, you should be just fine.

I know sry. It is not as hard as i think
Mar 15, 2009, 11:20 PM
Last question. Did i have to do memory stability test if i havent touch any ram configurations?
Mar 16, 2009, 2:44 PM
only if your over clocking ure ram or using lower timings.

Mar 16, 2009, 7:32 PM

Mar 16, 2009, 11:56 PM
yea it does but why ship a drive with dud firmware, just shows how little testing they do on them.

Mar 17, 2009, 2:20 PM
No grinding is not normal. Get a WD6401AALS, it's a good fast drive.
