If your interested I can post signed pics of the items.

Anyway if your not interested just get a decent gigabyte DS3L board on tp of that RAM.

Wow, that is a good deal! You can't even get a P5K-E WIFI for under $145.00 without tax and shipping.

Ok great job so far. 3.6 is a very solid start Seems that board likes your cpu with that bios.

Anyway 400x9 is 3600mhz. Unless you have some of the power saving features it should stay that way. BTW be sure to follow the P5KE wifi guide I sent to ensure the system stays stable (eg disable execute disable bit, C1E speedstep). Play with the memory timings and dividers too when your more comfortable those are good modules I sent to you.
