You don't need a tutorial to understand this...just the basics of overclocking. When you overclock, you increase the clock speeds of all your related hardware, such as memory chips. When you have 4 sticks, your chance doubles (compared to two sticks) of having one that doesn't play nice with the higher clocked speeds.
Yea that makes sense if you figure one out of four can be bad
I am always learning from here so it helps me to get input

Also i called the store i bought the ram from for the difference of what paid they told me it would be easier to contact the manufature
see what they think

It isn't so much that one out of four could be's just that with more chips, you have a much greater chance of having one not handle an overclock too well. Overclocking is far from an exact science. It is basically an exercise in trial and error. You push until something doesn't stay stable, and then you back off.

Yeah I been reading all about Overclocking

That is why i am doing it ! For the life of me i must get knowledge on the subject before just jumping in head first

Alot of things go right passed my head if not told about it ,I know more ram doesn't always add up to be a good thing I trying to work the maximum i can on this board

As pointed out I will get nothing short of what I have now I even overclocked this puppy to 4 ghz stable ,No point in pushing this chip any further anyway

The new selection should be out soon and Im figuring it would handle 16 gigs off a overclock cause it being a new platform thus my query that wil be another thread on OVERCLOCKING 8 core chips and who currently uses one

That's why I like this forum better understanding always helps instead of going blindly into the darkness

Don't waste your money on Ultimate
If you just speak English and want to use Ultimate then buy or build a new computer because Ultimate office multi languages but most of us just won't ever use it and then there is BitLocker which secures your Hard Drive but you better have a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 chip in your computer...
