My System Specs


I am using Kingston Ram with that board and so far everything works great. Kingston is pretty much my default RAM nowadays. I have tried a couple of other brands, namely G. Skill and got plenty of problems with those. When first installed, the ram was doing fine and had no problem in memtest but after a couple of months it wouldn't work properly and was constantly failing memtest... That happened twice. Never had any problems with Kingston.

OCZ Ram for the Fail again.

And people wonder why I steer clear.

Good To hear its up and running. And most RAM has to be manually set from my experience, at least the performance stuff.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
