    Asus iP35 motherboard?

    Ok I am looking to buy a motherboard for myself and have found this one which is rather appealing and there are two questions I have. It is the Asus P5KC: LN19052

    I would like to know whether my PC4200 Corsair Value select would be able to work in this motherboard at 667Mhz or is that too risky?

    I would also like to know the ETA of this motherboard so I may decide when to order it.

    The reason I want this one is because it supports DDR3 memory which is most likely the memory I will upgrade to in the future as well as support for the next generation Intel CPU's so it is the most future proof but I am concerned that my memory won't work with this motherboard.

    I wouldnt bank on it working, and no-one can tell you if it will, as you would be running it out of spec.

    If that board is anything like the P5K as far as the bios is concerned, then 667 is the lowest divider available when running the cpu at stock speeds.

    But, for the price of ram now, cant you stretch to something a bit faster?

    I think I am going to get the corsair XMS2 dominator PC6400 so that should do fine

    Do you think this motherboard is a top choice compared to other iP35 boards and the nForce 680i boards?

    I do like the DDR3 memory upgrade prospect and the new Intel 45nm chip looks promising so that would be nice to upgrade to as well

    I havent used that particular board, but I do have the P5K deluxe, and that is excellent so far.

    I wouldnt bother with 680i, unless you really need SLI and arse ache.
