I suggest doing that and picking up a 990FX mobo along with some 1866mhz ram and perpare yourself for the bulldozer, that thing overclocks like a beast. The Octacore broke the world record for fastest CPU @ 8.49ghz on Liquid Helium :O
JESUS! lol. i was wondering about ram frequencies. with the reading that ive done it seems like anything over 1600mhz does not make a difference. so i read to get 1600mhz ram with low clock speeds like 7.... or could i buy some 2000 mhz+ 9c ram and it will be able to run at say 1600mhz 7c? or better.
