    Haven't played with dividers on the P5B so can't really comment as to how well memory overclocks. Seem to recall some issues with certain dividers over 400 FSB though. Can't remeber which ones - will try and dig em out for you.

    The fact that the Cellshock PCB can cope with more voltage is great, but you're still limited by the chips themselves. Much over 2.4v 24/7 through D9 and you risk it degrading over a period of time. Might allow for more stable voltage to the chips meaning they might clock a bit better at the same voltage but thats probably all you'll gain. Thats not to say don't get the Cellshock, it looks to be spiffy memory but consider what you'll be using it for. Does it offer you anything extra over some cheaper D9 based IC's? If it does then its the ram to go for.

    <edit> Also remeber PIE the NBCC issues from running < default multi. Should be ok depending on how far you drop the multi but its something to be aware of. 500 FSB from a 6600 isn't air territory, you'll probably be running ~ 430 MAX under water </edit>

    It's up 2 you the 6400 should scale up but will usually be short of 8000 5-5-5-5. But from what i've seen all the cellshock are pretty well respected.
    as WhiskeyAlpha says the specs are good including the 8 layer pcb . Don't think u can go wrong with any just get the set your comfortable with.

    btw where did u catch your XEON 3060 ??

    yeah i will go with the 6400 set. if I need more from the mem i shall sell up and go with the 8000 set.

    ah yes my lovely xeon 3060, cant wait to clock that up.

    the etailer i got it from no longer sell them ! i doubt you can get one in the UK now . not that i have looked since getting this.

    a mate found 2 and he told me to call them up and buy it asap

    Have you received it yet or do you mean just ordered it?

    I'd be very interested to see how these perform.

    I will watch for your results guys. I can't predict what you will get in the way of performance as I have not tried anything but G.Skill. Post up your results and let us know
