That is normal. You have DDR memory; Double Data Rate. The GDDR3 memory transfers data on both the rising and falling edges of the clock signal. So the freq is effectively doubled to 1800mhz.

Didn't you understand my previous explanation? That is normal. 900MHZ is 1800MHZ doubled, which is how you interpret DDR memory. Data is transferred twice with each cycle. Your system is working correctly at 1800MHZ.

When you say 'it is working good'... do you mean you have run Prime95 or some other stress testing pgm for at least an hour and watched that the temps did not exceed the CPU's max limit? And the stress testing pgm did not return any errors?

The longer you run your processor at O/C speeds, the shorter the lifespan may be. Depending on what you had to do to get to that speed. Increasing the voltage is probably the hardest on the processor. If you don't need the extra speed the O/C gives, back off to default for everyday tasks.

Here is a good 'quick' pgm to judge your O/C stability: Intel Burn Test.

You are at the max capability of your HD 6670 DDR3 graphic card. That is all it is capable of. The problem of lack of smooth frame rates at higher settings is due to the fact that the card cannot keep up. Your hard drive has NO effect on your gaming frame rate. All mechanical HDDs top out at 5.6 on W.E.I. (WEI is not a good rating system for gaming anyway)

Your ability to play at high settings is dependent on these 3 things in this order:
1) Your graphic card's capability
2) Your CPU's capability
3) The speed of your memory, and to some extent the amount.

Here is a hierarchy chart of gaming graphic cards: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...
And here is a comparison application you can use to compare 2 cards against each other: http://www.hwcompare.com/

What processor do you have?

Your processor also is about maxed out for gaming at any higher settings with a demanding game such as Crysis 3. Here is a hierarchy chart of processors based on their gaming capabilities: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...

While your CPU and GPU are well balanced for each other, to get any frame rate improvement in demanding games such as Crysis 3, you will need to upgrade. You might be able to go up to an HD 7750 or even an HD 7770 before you experience any severe 'bottle neck' due to your 2.8GHZ C2D processor.

The resolution you run your games at will also make a difference in the frame rate you can achieve. What resolution is your display?

Actually, I was referring to your monitor's resolution. What is your monitor's native resolution?
I didn't think anybody still gamed at 1024x768. No wonder you can get medium settings to provide decent frame rates with Crysis3. If you are happy gaming at that low resolution, I would suggest upgrading the gfx card before the processor. That will make the most difference for the money.
Use that graphics card hierarchy chart and find your HD 6670 DDR3*. Then move up the list until you get at least 3 tiers above your card. That is where you should start looking to find one that will make a noticeable difference.

* there's also an HD 6670 DDR5 in the list. don't confuse the two.

1600x1200... OK, I understand now. You have a 1600x1200 CRT monitor. That is a good resolution for gaming, although the old 4:3 squarish display must be like wearing blinders in a game designed for wide screen. I would get a faster card and run Windows and your games at that resolution. Your 2.8GHZ C2D will give you good frame rates at that resolution with a faster card.

About the GTX 550ti...
It is in the same tier as the HD 6770 according to the hierarchy chart I linked you to. But it is a major upgrade to the HD 6750 w/DDR3 VRAM. Either the 550ti or the 6770 would be adequate for high-ish settings at 1600x1200 resolution in most games.

Now, on to the monitor question...
The only thing wrong with gaming on a monitor with a 4:3 aspect ratio, is that you lose the beauty and extra visual real estate available with a wide-screen (16:10, 16x9) LCD/LED monitor. And yes, your friends are correct; gaming on a higher resolution wide screen monitor makes for a better looking game environment. You will feel like you took off the blinders. You will see more area of the game with your peripheral vision. And all of today's games are written for the wide screen displays. But keep in mind, the higher the resolution, the more powerful the gfx card needs to be to maintain fast, smooth frame rates.

If you stay with your 1600x1200 CRT monitor and run games at that resolution, don't waste your money on anything less than the 550ti/6770. Maybe go even a step above. But if you continue to play at lower resolution than that, those cards will be more than enough.

If the case fan is plugged into the motherboard, you can control it with the settings in BIOS. Which motherboard do you have?
Btw, 3400RPM is a very fast RPM for a case fan. What size fan is it?

If that fan is plugged into the motherboard chassis fan header, you can control the speed in BIOS under Power Menu/Hardware Monitor. See page 216 of your MB manual, section 2.5.5

You can check your BIOS version with a pgm such as CPU-Z: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
...under Mainboard Tab.
You can get the latest BIOS update at the MB's manufacturer's site: http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/P5P41T_LE/
...under the Support Tab.

But only update the BIOS if you know what you are doing. Interrupting the BIOS update or updating with the wrong BIOS can ruin your MB. If you aren't comfortable doing the update, just buy a new fan that is quieter or get a fan controller.

It's only crash free if you have the bundled recovery software, the proper BIOS on USB disk, and know how to use it. Only you can be the judge of how important it is to you to want to update a perfectly good working BIOS, and if you have the knowledge to do so.

If you have ver 0604, you already have the latest. I have no idea why your BIOS setup program doesn't follow the manual. Unless you are not reading it correctly.

No decision to make on the BIOS. Can't update it any further. If you don't like the noisy fan, I would get a replacement or a fan controller. Are you reading the correct fan speed? 3000+ RPM sounds like a CPU fan speed.
Remember to look for decibel ratings if you buy new. Try to keep the decibels below 25 if you are sensitive to noise. And remember, large fans move more air quieter than small fans.
