  1. That's rediculous. That corsair memory is compatible with the Asus Maximus...
  2. tahts what i thought as well... escpecially since i bought it lol.. but it keeps recieving errors no matter what..... he opened 4 packages (i saw him do this, and they all came up with errors) actually to go into more detail, 1 stick would always come up with errors totally by itself (ie 1gb) and then then when he took that one out and put the other one that came with the package (again 1gb by itself) it wouldnt come up with errors... its really **** up..

    also i was looking at this ram as well http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=24180&vpn=BL2KIT12864AL1065&manufacture=CRUCIAL%20TECHNOLOGY#CustomerReviews
  3. anyone?
  4. you may need set ram voltage accord to spec. Most high end ram need above 1.8 volt. you need to set to 2.2v in the bios.
    for oc q6600. I think 3.2 to 3.4 Ghz should be good untill you want to push it higher, so 400*9 is good to go. then DDR2 800 is the memory you want.
  5. One suggestion I have, which might be a pain, is to really look at the dimm slots and see if you can tell if any pins are mis-aligned with the memory out of the slot. Even use a magnifying glass if you have one.
  6. I'm using the GSkill ddr2 800mhz ram to OC nicely

    see the sig line...
