for $119.99, w/$20 mail in rebate, for $99.99!! I checked pricewatch and can't find this same RAM for less than $180.00! The rebate expires 4/26/05 so I'm going to order tonight if this will work...
Can I pair this RAM with Corsair XMS-PRO ram for a total of 2GB and fill up all four of my DIMM slots? Will it downclock my memory from DDR400 to DDR333?
Will it be compatible? Do they need to be the same CL/CAS specs, or same brand? I don't see that info on the website, and I would need to dig up my old Corsair memory box or find info to see the exact specs on my RAM again if so...
Anyway plz help, gotta do this tonight for that rebate...
When I was talking about the the downclock to 333Mhz in the other thread i was referring specifically to the A64 CPUs with the Winchester core. From AMD: there are inherent limitations on the memory controller that cause AMD to recommed 333Mhz FSB when using more than 4 ranks of memory (read the recent ranks and organization thread for more details). I don't know if it applies to the memory controller for your system, but Brent (The Man) says that type of downclock is a good general rule. Easiest way to verify is to get the memory and see if your system downclocks the FSB when you install the modules.

hmm... link? I checked, I don't think this deal is running ANYWHERE else... I think this has to be an error. And I guess its a $25 mail in rebate. That's $95 for 1GB of Kingston HyperX RAM (2x512mb) - the quality stuff... at a valueselect price, or the cost of one hyperX 512mb stick.
It's CL2 and the timings are CAS 2-3-2-6-1 - not sure what that means.. but is it good or what?
Anyway I think I'm gonna buy that tonight, any more comments/info on that before I do?
I'd do it for video editing. Your board should run all 4 stable at PC3200 speed, you might need to kick it up to PC3200 speed manually (it might drop down automatically), and you might need to raise vDIMM slightly for stability at that speed.
