Hey Hey,

I have a 3.0GHz processor and the P5ND2-SLI Deluxe motherboard.
This motherboard does handle 667mhz RAM. On the otherhand this kind of RAM... Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-667 CL3-3-3-12 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit is not in my QVL list for my board. So would this RAM work or would it make my computer freeze. Is that RAm to fast for my CPU???

Your thoughts Please!

Whats the FSB of the cpu? Is it 667 or 800?
Memory will slow down to the set speed in the bios so a 800mhz chip will work at 667.
Crucial may not have tested it yet or if they did it failed, which should have been mentioned if it did fail.
What other memory choices have you looked at? Or do you already have the memory?

The FSB of the CPU is 800MHz and I already have 2x512 of Kingston value ram 533mhz. The reason in buying the Kignston was that I did have Mushin EM2-5400 and it kept freezing my computer so I chnage to different brand that was in my QVL list and is now working. But I don't think this 533 is very fast or that high of quality so...

Should I switch to crucial or Mushin again (maybe it was just a bad batch) or should I just buy more Kingston haha lots of questions sorry?

crucial.com has a product selector. Go there, punch in your motherboard, and it'll tell you what'll work with it that they make. They even guarantee that it will work.
