Guys ive been doing some reading about 4gb and the p5n32-e sli and it seems whoever has 4gb running has to underclock the ram to 667 to get there pc to post into windows or to take 1 stick out to keep it running at 800.

Can anyone shed some light on this please, as i would hate to buy the spec ive listed and would have to underclock it rather then overclock it

Having owned both I wouldnt say the Corsair is much better, infact in some area's the OCZ is better. Mine is for sale in MM, only reason I changed is to go modular, when I had the Antec 900 it didnt matter as there was more room for extra wires in the bottom of the case.

The spec looks good! Just remember that if you’re going with 4GB RAM you'll need 64bit Windows as 32Bit Windows can only address a maximum of 3GB RAM :)
