Hey all,

I am planning on upgrading my system w/ AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ 2.4GHz Socket 939 on an ASUS A8R32-MVP Deluxe motherboard.

Will my OCZ EL Platinum Rev2 DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel memory work with this new configuration?
Will my system take a significant performance hit using this memeory?

By the way, I don't plan on doing any overclocking.

Thanks,

Mark

Memory Speeds = DDR200,266,333,366,400 (433,466,500 with Rev. E AMD)

Theres no reason you would take a performance hit. Memory should work fine. Might want to check ASUS' website for memory compatability. Most likley your memory is not listed there, but who knows. Give it a shot.

it should work fine.

is there any reason why you think the memory would take a performance hit?

I looked at the pdf manual and OCZ wasn't listed.
It may still work, so I'll just give it a try.

Thanks

I guess I was just concerned if the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ required a certain speed memory.

This memory was used on a system w/ AMD XP 2100+ and I was just concerned if it was too old to work with the CPU I want to upgrade to.

Would I be making a mistake by not going with some DDR433,466, or 500 memory?

Thanks

dunno i live in San Diego and trying to sell it in Craiglist so people can see it running beforehand, and make sure everything is alright but not having any luck. I have sold the memory video card hdd, even the CASE LOL.

$300 with still 2 years warranty for the proc. is not that bad a deal is it? (4800+ and A8R32-MVP)

$300 ...

That may be your problem. In my experience, Craigslist tends to be a bargain sale environment where stuff under $100 is MUCH more likely to sell than more expensive stuff.
I think you'll be much better off selling it on ebay. That will also give you an idea of the current value for the used CPU and MB.

Funny thing is now I am starting to reconsider my purchase plans.

I'm thinking now I'll just get a AM2 mb and cpu.
If I went with the socket 939 mb I'd be at a cpu upgrade deadend anyway.
Plus, now the AM2 AMD 64 x2 4800+ can be had for less the 939 version.
Yea, I'll have to buy all new memory, but I was going to need buy additional memory anyway to bring my capacity up from 1Gig to 2Gigs.
Now I'll just get 2x1Gig DDR2-800 sticks for the new system and use the old mb, cpu, DDR400 memory to build a media center system.
