    Did you make it clear to Kingston that you are considering buying used memory and that you wanted a list of older memory kits that were compatible with your motherboard?

    A web search using: asrock 4Core1600Twins-P35D compatible memory shows:

    Memory Upgrade ASRock 4Core1600Twins-P35 Motherboards Upgrade ASRock Memory RAM
    • 2048MB-800MHz DDR2-800 PC2-6400, 240p DIMM, 1.8v 2GB module - $16.99
    • 2048MB-1333MHz DDR3-1333 PC3-10600, 240p DIMM, 1.5v 2GB module - $13.99

    • DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHz 240-pin DIMM 2GB module - $19.36 (price includes VAT)

    The memory kits are house brands and might be OK.

    A web search using: asrock 4Core1600Twins-P35D review shows:

    The DDR2 HyperX memory kits were Kingston's best performing kits but some of these kits had better specifications than some similar kits.

    HyperX data sheets:

    I have the HyperX T1 kits which have 60mm tall heat spreaders and these kits were also stable up to 876MHz with 4-4-4-10 timings. YMMV

    The used prices for higher end PC2-8500 2 x 2GB kits often are in the $60 - $80 range for each kit and used PC2-6400 kits with 4-4-4-12 ratings are usually lower.

    Years ago in the Gigabyte forum, owners often had difficulty getting their DDR3 memory running at the rated speed with P35 and P45 motherboards. A 4GB DDR3 setup will be much less expensive than a 4 x 2GB DDR2 setup.

    My preference would be to go with an 8GB setup but a 4GB setup running at its rated speed is still a good option.
    Running with a 4GB DDR3 setup probably won't provide a noticeable increase in performance.

    Thanks for your time, I guess my issue comes down to:
    DDR3 is relativelly cheap for 8 GB, but I need a set working on my board. (50$ for 2* 4 gig DDR3 kit is ok) >> I could return the hyprX fury thanks to amazon policy, might dive another DDR3 kit a try.
    DDR2 would be very expensive to go form 4 GB to 8GB. ( usually in the 90+ $ for 4*2GB, and PC-6400 ) >> I decided this option is not worth it for me.

    As for getting my current RAM at 1066MHz, I have to delay my tests for couple days ( important project saved on computer right now not feasible to put on laptop, so no risky business on motherboard until finished). > will resuem testing this WE. I think I need ot reset all to auto before touching the jumpers for the FSB.

    Responses inline
    cheers,

    I asked: "Could you advise me an older ddr3 ram (2*4gig) model that would be compatbile?" Maybe I wa snot specific enought. I sent a response asking if the kvr1333d3n9h/4g would be compatible.

    I found those too, but I look for a 4 gig module DDR3 not a 2GB module and as they do not say which module it is I can t look if it exist in 4GB. As for DDR2, price to ship to spain get 2GB at about 25$. With no return option.

    DDR2 Pc-8500 is indeed too expensive ot be worth it.
    The new Bios allows for 8 gig DDR3 ( but not official , reaosn why we can t find any 4 gig RAM in compatibility list I assume.

    I have 4 GB running fine, so only option that interest me money wise is the 8 gig DDR3 option.

    I'll post once I buy something or I test agian to get my DDR2 at 1066.

    Thanks,

    I wasn't aware that a newer bios would support a 2 x 4GB DDR3 setup.

    It isn't likely that any newer 4GB DDR3 modules will be compatible with your motherboard. When your motherboard was available and not EOL, DDR3 memory was spec'd with 1.65 volts and up to 1.80 volts was OK if needed.

    It will be interesting to see if you can run your existing memory with 4-4-4-12 timings up to about 875MHz or with 5-5-5-15 timings at or near 1066MHz. The best performance gain will be if you can overclock your system 10% - 20% higher.

    Hello

    I have now 8 gig of working DDR3 on the board. >>Kingston 4GB DDR3 1333MHz PC3-10600 CL9 - RAM kvr1333d3n9/4g
    Next, get it to work at 1333 Mhz instead of 800 Mhz ( I tried setting it in the bios, no success (yet) maybe jumper, I'll go back to my manual, for now just wanted to share the working memory part)
