I plan on buying a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P soon. I already own an E8400 which I plan on OC'ing to 4.0Ghz ( 9x444 FSB ). This will tax my memory to function at a x2 multiplier resulting in a speed of 888Mhz.
What Im looking for is a decent Memory manufacture DDR2 800Mhz that can and will function solid at 888Mhz.
Id like to purchase a 2Gbx2 kit.
Looking for assistance, thank you kindly for any direction or help! I checked the compatibility list for the board, but a lot of whats listed is memory Ive never heard of. Im hoping to hear from someone in the same boat who has this board and possibly this chip.
To be safe just get DDR2-1066 CL5. That way the ram will be guaranteed to run at 888mhz. It'll also allow you to overclock even higher if you choose. However, most ddr2-800 CL4 ram should run at 888mhz CL5 without problem too.
Thank you kindly for the reply, would I get more performance if I were to run it at 9x444 with a 5:6 memory divider to effectively run the memory at 1069Mhz rather then a 1:1 ratio resulting in a 888Mhz speed? ( With the 1066Mhz DDR2 CAS5 memory of course )
