    Question Looking for new memory for NF7-S.

    Hey guys, i'm looking for some new memory because my corsair I have now arent supported by the mobo and the comp keeps shutting down on numurous acounts. So, I was wondering if anybody knows a good 3200ddr 256x2 memory kit that is supported by NF7-S under $110. If anybody can help me that would be awesome. I was thinking something from Kingston Technology but I couldnt find any.

    Thanks guys!

    Have you run memtest on it? to check if it is the RAM, as i would have though corsair (one of the biggest manu's) would be supported...

    there are problems with the corsair matched pair stuff with nf7s, iirc (could be wrong though) - personally I'd opt for two twinmos pc3200 sticks from cpucity - they get the job done, and you don't end up paying £60 extra just for cas 2

    just my 2p.

    I've run a variety of TwinX sets 2700, 3200, 3200LL at 512mb and 1gb and had no problems with the NF7S. I would agree with Blockers and check the memory itself first. What settings are you running in bios?

    I wouldn't get normal TwinMOS stuff, apparently they cause problems. Here's a list of the compatible RAM for the nForce 2: http://www.nvidia.com/content/nForce...patibility.asp

    I looked on the Nforce2 list before and it didnt have my memory supported. So, can anybody point me to a good website where I can purchase these?

    Thankyou.

    If the PC keeps shutting down, are you sure its not the PSU rather than the RAM?

    When I looked, Komplett, Scan and CPUCity didn't have Kingston RAM, only Ebuyer had any Kingston.
