    You might not have to sell it. OCZP10004GK has the same ICs with different HS and they shoulld fit in between the two X I would think. That would wouldn't really be any different that just buying 4 2GB sticks really.

    I'd at least ask their forum support before I spent any money I might not have to. Then again, if you have dollars burning holes in your pants... :)

    I talk to one guy at ocz and tells me the same, it will not fit. So, the only way is selling this to put the platinum.

    Well, I found something odd. It's supposed that 8gb motherboard use 4 dimm to get that, right? Look at this

    G.SKILL does NOT recommend to run 4DIMM on any motherboard with NB nvidia 680i and 650i
    (Recommands 2DIMM only)

    Here is the link
    http://www.gskill.us/166.pdf

    Why? Anyone with 680i with problems with their 8 GB? That's sound bad, I have 680i. I'm not changing to 780i just for this.

    EVGA 780i SLi tested ok on 2 and 4 dimm, by G.Skill.

    Well, I gave up on the nforce chipsets and went with a known, stable overclocker- Gigabyte. Supposedly the 780i was having issues with 8GB as well. I'll reconsider SLI some other year.

    Here's what I ordered lasnight. Should be here to start building Weds.

    Vista 64-Bit
    Nzxt Zero full tower
    Silverstone single rail 650 PSU
    Gigabyte GA-EX38-DSQ6 mobo
    Intel Q6600 Quad CPU
    OCZ Freeze Thermal Compound
    COOLER MASTER 92mm Hyper TX2 CPU Cooler
    8GB OCZ DDR2 1000 RAM
    150GB Raptor 10K SATA HDD
    OKGEAR HDD Cooler
    eVGA 8800GTS (G92) 512MB GPU
    Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1
    2- SAMSUNG SATA DVD Burners with LightScribe
    Scythe KAZE MASTER Digital Fan Controller
    BenQ G2400W Black 24" LCD
    Merc Illuminated Gaming Keyboard
    Logitech MX518 Gaming Mouse
    Creative Inspire 7.1 Speakers

    I hope it all plays nice together!

    Well, I send an email to G. Skill about the 4 sticks on 680i, this is their answer.
    "For 680i we don’t recommend 4 sticks of 1066 or 1000 4GB. It is better just use 800 4GB and 2 sticks."
     
  9. anyone else has the vista sidebar taking a LOT of ram? mine is almost taking 2Gbs now lol.

    My 780i doesn't have problems with 8GB at all.
    Also a good overclocker I think - so far 1900 on the FSB (475 on the bus speed) which comes to 4275Mhz :D

    I would start by checking the gadgets you have as they can leak memory, e.g. >> http://www.edbott.com/weblog/?p=1616

    Also make sure you got all the performance and reliability updates for Vista, the sidebar itself had some fixes i believe.
     
  12. Didn't find any info to fix my problem on that site but that made me search a little bit for it and found out it was my multi HDD gadjet that was the problem. I had five of them running so it was pretty sick. I changed it for another one that is fixed supposedly.

    Do all these Hot FIxes and such like the ones you mentioned auto install on windows updates or are they patches you have to seek out and download separately?
