...bom tirei isto do forum da asus: "There's been a lot of discussion about which northwoods are better... Ones "made in Costa Rica", or the ones "made in Malaysia." The problem is, no northwoods are manufactured overseas. All are made in the USA, with the vast majority coming from Fab20 in Hillsboro, OR. They are packaged (in the Socket 478) overseas, but that has no effect on the overclockability. que acham?
