Without reading the specs I ordered 8Gb pc14400 (1800 Mghz) at 1.35v. I found out after the fact that the ram can not be overclocked. Now I am not sure if the DP55KG board will support it. I have a Noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler. I need a PSU and a GPU. What do you suggest? I have been looking at the Nvidia GTX 460-1Gb

The DP55KG board supports up to 16gbs and at 1800Mhz you are not good in that department, it will only take 1066 - 1600 Mhz. I suggest you cancel your order and buy 8gbs of 1600mhz DDR3 RAM, before they make the delivery happen.

I know it is normal to overclock DDR3 Ram but is there such a thing as underclocking?

No. Standard memory clock settings is the standard! Like the ground you stand on now is the standard height and cannot go lower, but only be raised. Be careful if you are not experienced in overclocking and who the hell would want to under clock lol :) .

Sorry if that was a dumb question. I thought that might be a way to use the pc 14400 and drop the 1800 to 1600. I already have the ram. And as you surmised I am dangerously new at oc.

Thanks for the help
As for the Ram Question- Intel does state max is 1600 Mhz, but this @1.65v and they say higher may be possible with somebody knowing what they are doing with incremental voltage increases. Remember my Ram is 1800Mhz at 1.35v, theoretically i would not be stressing the mb. Am I missing something
