what is MIR? and switching to the F3 is very clear. ty for that heads up as well as the product combo deal.
but about the ram u suggested, the timing isn't off? i thought my mobo only supported 800 or 1066, and i believe the one u suggested was 900?
mavanhel, my current mobo has an onboard gpu, so you're recommending switching to the cheaper one without the onboard gpu correct?
The RAM I listed will work just fine with your motherboard. The RAM speed rating on a motherboard doesn't mean much. It's just the maximum speed the manufacturer will warranty the motherboard for. Your board is rated to run RAM all the way up to 1333MHz by overclocking. Anything below the rated speed is fine.
AMD chips actually benefit from the extra bandwidth of faster RAM. I use the PI Black kit I linked above in one of my computers. It will easily overclock to DDR2 1066 with 5-5-5-15 timings at 2.1v.
cool that's awesome to know. sorry to ask this, but the search feature offers a plethora of overclocking options, and to be quite honest i am a bit intimidated. is there one somewhat specific to the ram you recommended? is there also a somewhat specialized overclocking guide for an amd phen II x4?
and regarding memory ddr2 ok to stick with instead of ddr3?
