I use RAID 0 myself & I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it makes a world of a difference. My old tug does a XP install from Disc to Desktop in 7 Mins Approx. & it's totally down to the RAID.- HDD x 4 sata2 in two seperate raid0 arays Avarage read 163.2Mb/s

Yeh you're right Rob but you know me.. I is chicken when it comes to certain things. lol. And volts on a CPU is one of them. :p I have it high enough for me. I made some improvements to the encoding times of my rig with just the little OC that I did. NOT quite the 20% improvement but 10%-15% for sure. ;)1.475v is kinda hi but cant the E6850 handle 1.5v? i know i have asked that before but i dont remember the answer..lmao.right now my volts are in auto and running at 1.25v on my vcore. and CPU running at 3.5ghz
