  1. If you are going to overclock, then get DDR2 677.

    If not then just get DDR2 533.
  2. Someone posted this link here a few days ago. If you're going for 667, make sure it's 3-3-3-8, otherwise it's worse than 533.
  3. thanks for all the information. i'm not going to overclock it. using ddr400 rightnow and planning to upgrade to ddr2 step by step coz the mobo i will use is asrock 775dual-vsta.

    thanks for the link too big_cheese. it really helps. :)

  5. yeah i saw it too on :) hope the board doesn't get too hot quickly as the asrock p4i65gv does.

    If you - and anyone else - who's heading for ASROCK + C2D + DDR2, then try ASROCK ConRoeXFire mainboard (see specs at ASROCK's website); if you're going PCIe instead of AGP, this one's a better choice for a few more bucks.

  7. i choose asrock 775dual-vsta as my future board because i still want to use my x1600pro agp and 2gb ddr400 ram :p

    is there anyone out there who really try this mobo? want to know the result which is positive or not (beside the good review from
