I was wondering. I've read some about it on the other forums here & had a chance to get 2 sticks of it. I'm currently running 1 stick of Samsung that is 512 2700 DDR @ cas 2.5. I'm running it @ Cas 2.0 & haven't had a problem with it but, I can't run my A7V8X on optimum settings in BIOS with it. I hope that I can do that with the Kingston HyperX though.
Ic.. well you can probably do that... but don't count on using those two sticks together in dual mode... the samsung is not likely to enjoy sitting next to the hyper X... unless of course you will get rid of the samsung stick.. but that's up to you...
To err is human... to really screw things up you need a computer!
Oh yea, the Samsung memory is promised to someone else. I'm just going to run the HyperX. My thought is, ditch the Samsung & go to the HyperX only. Then when I can work out some other deal I'm going to ditch the A7V8X & get the A7N8X & I'll be all set for the dual DRR on the Nforce.
I'm not in that big of hurry. I have built several A7N8X systems for others & when the things work out I'll switch boards. Get some one that is on a budget that needs a computer but doesn't want to spend the $$$ to get the Nforce. I'll say well here's a A7V8X that I can do you for you reasonable. Pay the diff. & get the Nforce. That's how I ended up getting the Hyper X. Guy didn't want to spend the $$$ on 512, but the system I put together for him I felt needed it. So I had him pay for 1 stick of the HyperX, gave him my Samsung & I sprang for the other Dimm of Hyper X. Seems everybody ends up happy.
The rest of my system is:
Asus A7V8x Delux
80 gig. WD JB edition
Antec 1080AMG case
