    High speed memory PC4000+ and motherboards

    Hi all,
    Which motherboards support high speed DDR like PC4200? I wanted to get the IC7 MAX3 but I read a review that said it only supported PC3200... is this true? Also, what kind of memory support does the ASUS P4C800 have?

    Thanks for your help,
    Alex

    nothing SUPPORTS above PC3200, as such, as PC3200 is the highest official standard.

    if you're overclocking, then >3200 memory gives you a certain garunteed speed - divide by 16 to get the equivalent FSB, so PC3200 is 200FSB, PC4000 is 250FSB. the fastest FSB any processors offically run at is 200, so you'd be into overclocking territory as soon as you go above that.
