My System Specs

The CPU's FSB says 1333 @ 2.5ghz, the GaEp45-ud3p says 1600/1333, got DDR2 1066 RAM. Will the Mobo automagically max the default settings combination, or do I have to dive into the 232,443,952-option bios to tweak it up a bit (if so, I'll cya in the OC forum )
The AC 7 Pro ships with a decent thermal grease (either MX1 or MX2) so you'll be fine so long as you don't need to reseat the hsf too many times.

Your memory will default to DDR2 800 speeds so you'll need to manually adjust the memory up to 1066.
