I think I'll stay away from it then cause I love this computer the way it is. Only thing is, off topic though, the memory module that doesn't seem to work with the current 3 modules I have installed works fine by itself without any problem or when used just with its pair of the Samsung module, but it doesn't work with the 2 OCZ & its Samsung pair module all installed at the same time, any reason why ? Memtest does show errors with that module but it doesn't give ANY problems when used by itself or with its pair.

So, is that RAM bad or its fine but cannot be used on my current machine because of its partner memory modules ? The thing is I want to have Dual Channel memory but I cannot have that unless I find the pair of the samsung module I currently have which I have been unable to find (it came with the computer, Alienware). I sell both the Samsung modules & purchase the identical OCZ modules I currently have, that my best shot ?

i second that notion! :whistling: :blink:

if your not sure and dont want to take the risks then dont its not worth playing around with all the settings and only getting a very small performance gain (since you only want to do it a little bit)

theres no point possably blowing close to 400$ AU dollars on a new processor because you have broken the other one

look if your not sure then dont really bother but if your still interested i am happy to help walk you through the steps if you have weighed up the pros and cons and still wantto attempt it
