Gigabyte K8NSNXP - which dual PC4000/4400 RAM?
I would like to know which dual PC4000 and PC4400 ram sticks have no problem running with this board. The reason i want duals is so if i ever upgrade and get a board with dual DDR i won't have to buy new ram to take advantage of it.
I've heard this board is very picky and i don't want to buy RAM and return it because it doesn't work properly.
So can anyone tell me any RAM sticks that are guaranteed to work with this board? I don't care if its cheapo generic RAM either as long as it works.

I have used with success 2x512MB:
Geil Value DDR 3200- 226 Mhz 2.5-3-3-8 2.7 vDimm
Corsair XMS 3200C2 CH-5- 210 Mhz 2-3-3-8
Geil 4000 Ultra Platinum- 250 Mhz 2.5-4-4-7 2.7 vDimm
OCZ 3700EB- 233 Mhz 3-3-2-8 2.7 vDimm
Mine is the S939 board.

By daffywow! were you able to run all of those in 1T? or only 2T?
hmm, what single sticks would be guaranteed to run 250HTT 1:1 in 1T?

hey dude... i made the move from XP-M system to a64 a month ago...
i had bought a 3500+ newcastle, a K8NS-Ultra 939 (same as the k8nsnxp but without the heatsink on the mosfets - i couldn't justify the extra $90 when i can get my own little heatsinks on there), and i continued to use the XMS3200XL that i had from my previous system... unfortuantely it wasn't as good... i could only do 250-260 @ 3-4-4-10 1T, at the boards' max vdimm which is something like 2.7-2.8v.
i decided this wasn't ideal for ram that cost over $400, so i got rid of it for $375, and i took a risk and invested in some adata pc4000.. 2x512mb sticks for $304 delivered. unfortunately it was about the same as the xms3200XL! could do 240 @ 2.5-3-3 1t 1:1 which is not bad, but... yeah...
YESTERDAY i picked up a ddr booster, and with a small voltage increase it does 260 1:1 2.5-3-3 1T (ultra tight timings for everything else too!) and it's humming along happily at 270 now (i now have a winchester 3200+ running 10 x 270 which is pretty good, and yeah, still finalising voltage settings from the booster). see my thread:
for additional help - head on over to xtremesystems... they have a thread dedicated to our boards:
