  1. Not experienced with overclocking the Rampage or the i7. Maybe you can check out the Intel Core i7 Overclocking How-to topic?
  2. Thanks for your response. The video link is the perfect beginners tutorial. I will stick to the advice given since it is matched by most chat room conversations I have recently been reading. The only open question is overclocking my RAM. I will have 16 GB of 1800 Mhz RAM from OCZ. Should I be happy with this speed, or can I push it a little - like 1866? I will not exceed the 1.65v recommendation - so I am unclear if this type of overclock will even be stable without more voltage.
