Have fun them, us know if you have any issues...might want to run HCI Memtest to confirm the ram is 100%, but otherwise, enjoy!

If you can get away with less, the sticks will last longer. Only use what you need.

I run 4ghz, @ 1.45v real, on air, so for me, it's worth it. But like I said earlier, the gains of an exta 100mhz or so, are so small, that it doesn't really matter.
