Vista SP1 Beta 1 Coming Soon?

It has been reported that Microsoft is gearing itself up to release the first beta of Vista Service Pack 1 next week (the week of July 16th). In addition to this, it seems they believe they will be set to release the final version in November, giving the beta a short 4 months. This coincides with Microsoft's likely November release of Windows Server 2008. Service Pack 1 is likely to deal more with fixes and enhancements rather than new features.

In addition to desktop-search modifications, here’s a list of other fixes likely to make it in:
* Performance tweaks lessening the amount of time it takes to copy files and shut down Vista machines (Yeah, I know Microsoft said Viista shutdown speed wasn’t an issue. Guess users weren’t so crazy, after all.)
* Improved transfer performance and decreased CPU utilization via support for SD Advanced Direct Memory Access (DMA)
* Support for ExFat, the Windows file format for flash memory storage and other consumer devices
* Improvements to BitLocker Drive Encryption to allow not just encryption of the whole Vista volume, but also locally created data volumes
* The ability to boot Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) on an x64 machine
* Improved success rate for firewalled MeetingSpace and Remote Assistance connections

What volts are you ruinning the RAM at?

I would suggest downloading and burning off a MemTest86+ boot disc for testing the RAM

I meant run memtest whilst your finding the tightest settings, saves booting into windows to see if their stable.

Up the voltage a tad and see if you can tighten those timings up a bit.

I'd suggest aiming a fan at them full time if you're tightening timings and stuff
