I know that my evga 680i sli mobo is old now back from 07, but is a damn good mobo, anyways im a lil confuse on what type of memory i can get all these numbers etc etc, basically i want something around 8gb or more, what are good recommendations ? thanks
I was running Crucial Ballistix in my old eVGA 680i motherboard.
I agree with swifty. If you already have 4 GB of RAM, save your money. If you presently have 2 GB, best bet is to add 2 more GB of the same brand. If you are going for 2 X 2 GB, I do not see the need for anything more than DDR2-800 RAM. Upper FSB limit of a 680i motherboard is around 440 - 450 MHz.
Mine booted and ran with stability at 442 MHz, but not at 443 MHz at what I regarded as a reasonable MCP voltage.
