1. Will I be able to achieve a 4.2+Ghz overclock with this motherboard and DDR3 RAM with the e8400 processor? I've heard that the DDR3 ram has a divider of 4, for example if you had DDR3 1600 ram, the supported front side bus would be 1600/4=400 mhz. And I've heard that DDR2 RAM has a divider of 2, so DDR2 1200 would have a supported front side bus of 1200/2=600 mhz therefore making it better to overclock with? I know the maximum multiplier of the e8400 is 9, so if I wanted 4.2 Ghz, 4200/9= 466.66 mhz. We know also that the FrontSideBus on the e8400 is quad-pumped, so 466.66x4=1866.66 mhz. That means my DDR3 ram would have to overclock, but only if I want to stay in synchronous mode. Could I switch to Asynchronous mode to a 3:4 FrontSideBus RAM ratio or similar and get that 4.2 Ghz overclock? Is that a good idea? Would this DDR3 ram be able to overclock to 1866 mhz? The motheboard claims to go up to 2200 mhz...
2. Will this power supply be acceptable for the video card? If I want to overclock it? If I want to software based Volt mod it with EVGA GPU Voltage Tuner v184.108.40.206? It says on the specifications page of this cards non-overclocked version, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., that it needs 36A on the 12V rails of the power supply. The Antec BP550 power supply has the 550W, but it says each of the 12V rails has 22A. If it uses 2 12V rail connectors as the video card needs, would that satisfy the 36A? 22+22=44? Alot of the power supplies I see in a wide range of Wattage don't offer 36A on each of the 12V rails.
Thanks very much for helping me!
