Oh, one last question

Which DDR400 RAM's (min. 1 x 512 MB module), would you recommend for this board ?

RMA = Return Materials Authorization ... in short, it means they returned it for repair/replacement.


DDR400 ... I would recommend Kingston HyperX RAM m8. It's fairly cheap (I paid $75 USD for 512MB DDR333 ... but they also make DDR400) and it's great. CL=2 btw, none of that 2.5 crap so it's slightly faster than most. Also been tested and working with the nVidia chipsets, no problems. p.s. don't confuse Kingston ValueRAM with Kingston HyperX. The ValueRAM is a bit crap.

Thx a lot

I've been looking at these:

DDR-SDRAM PC3200 Kingston HyperX 512MB CL2
Type: DDR-SDRAM PC3200 184-pins
Bit: 64bit(72bit)
Latency: 6ns
Speed: 400MHz

If I buy 2 blocks of these, will I be able to run them as dual-channel on the board, or is it required to buy specific dual-channel RAM ?

(Yes yes, I know it sounds stupid, but I just wanna be sure)

I have the same board, and I am running two of these modules:
TwinMOS PC2700 DDR-DIMM 256MB CL2 32M*8/8chip, 184-P (for DDR-PC333MHz)

Sometimes, that creepy voice says "memory test failed", but it boots up just fine, and the computer is behaving stable, I leave it on for days running the UD agent. No problems whatsoever.
I hope for a new BIOS version soon, hopefully this could be fixed. On the other hand, I am not getting any error message on screen, only with voice, so maybe the voice error reporting is buggy?
