    That memory is not on the official memory list but that list seems well out of date anyway
    I think with the newer BIOSs and board revisions the board is a lot more tolerant of different memory

    For info I'm running this in mine with no issues

    nIce, going by your my system setup, i have to ask, why are you only running your ram at 700mhz and not 800mhz ?
    And also why the after your motherboard spec ?

    RAM is set to 1:1 with FSB so runs at 375 * 2 = 750 i.e. my CPU is at 375 * 8 = 3.0Ghz
    (was at 350 * 2 = 700 for a 350 * 8 = 2.8Ghz overclock)

    The is because I bought the mobo from Scan who sent me a rev 1.0 rather than the latest rev 3.0 which was very annoying. Especially when they wouldnt change it....

    Oh I see, so getting the latest rev board will allow for me to run my ram at the correct speed?

    Im getting this memory ordered today :

    kingston hyperX ddr2- 800mhz / pc2-6400-unbuff-non-ecc

    What you reckon ?

    I'm running 2 of these, got the dual kit in my DS3P, have them running at the stock mobo voltage of 1.8v, 400MHz no probs.

    EDIT: I was talking about the ballistix stuff by the way.

    The later boards allow for Quad Core CPU upgrade, the rev 1 doesnt. Also the later revs apparently are better with different types of memory than the rev 1.0

    My memory will run at 800Mhz but I just decided to leave it at 1:1 as it can do 4-4-4-15 up to 750 but at 800Mhz+ it will only do 5-5-5-15.

    Dont know about Kingston memory I'm afraid. Always used Corsair and now OCZ. There's a number of decent Corsair 2Gb sets at Scan at the mo
