Default Motherboard + Memory Compatability

The memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231047

The Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491


I've heard that amd MSI boards are picky in terms of the memory it uses... I'm kinda nervous that if I buy the G.Skill that it might not work.. I haven't been able to find any information regarding it on google...

A lot of times memory just willn't be compatible with the motherboard. It may have the correct slots for the memory but it may not be able to run at its rated speeds or it just might not be stable.

You seem to be the only one that understands what i'm asking.

I know all about speeds, the motherboard takes DDR400, and the memory is DDR400, so theoritcally it should work. But as Amish kid said.. some motherboards just refuse to take certain brands or something... which is why i'm asking.

I want my new computer to be stable as a rock, not loose as liquid.

most mobo makers have some sort of list of which mem modules they recomend for best performance with their mobos

MSI has one of those.. unfortunatly... they are way more expensive than the G.Skill I mentioned... I really want 2 gigs of memory... arhg... Oh well.. i'll just rely on the 1 gb geil i'm getting for a while, then i'll get 2 gigs when it's cheaper.

I would try asking on their forums if anyone has had problems with that motherboard and using G. Skill memory.

That ram isn't the greatest. Id go with some OCZ, much faster.

Ok, hand me the money. This is the best I can do under my budget.

If I had the kind of money to go all out on a pc to the point it would actually be worthwhile to get 2.0 cas memory, I probably wouldn't be getting an Amd64 3200+, not to mention a 7600GT. 2.0 cas on such a system would be completely wasteful.

Default Re: Motherboard + Memory Compatability

go to www.dfi-street.com and ask those fellas. There are guys from all over the world there, who are incredible with their knowledge on compatibility. It is actually a DFI forum, but I bet someone would know something about it. Good luck.

Oh yeah, I have 2 gig of G.Skill, not the same model and make that you have, or the same speed. But, the memory is good for overclocking. G.Skill specifically makes their RAM modules for people who want to overclock. So, if you aren't going to OC, don't bother. The reason the stock speeds are so low, is because they make them to have room for OC'ing. It is actually very very good RAM. They have been tested by some of the best OCers in ASIA.

Well, using the memory at normal speeds and not overclocking should be perfectly fine. And all things considered, 2x1gb for $140 with 2.5 cas is a good deal.

It should work fine with MSI mobos. I havent heard any problems with G.Skill. G.Skill make some of the best RAM on the market right on. On par with OCZ and Mushkin.

Mushkin memory is quite good as far as I can tell. My dad has a 1 gb stick of ddr3200 mushkin in his pc. Been solid as a rock for about 8 months now. (thats when it was built)
