Funny you should mention that, as that's precisely what I intend to do.

Although from what I've read, the Maximus Formula actually overvolts by about 0.1 v.

I have had the 8GB kit in all along, so it's not a new thing.

Since I don't seem to be using the full 8GB as much as I thought, I am thinking about selling one of the kits and just going with 2x2GB, or selling both and going 4x1GB.

I was about to post a thread about that in the RAM sub-forum.
