    Default GA-X48-DS4 w/G-SKILL 1066 ram

    I need to get new RAm 2x2 gigs and MUSHKIN is sold out at NEWEGG how does G-SKILL Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory run on this board.Thx for the help i should have ordered Mushkin when i first asked NEWEGG said not sure when ram will be in and the 1 they have is 140+ with some special heat sink not needed for me plenty of air flow in case.Heat sink makes running 4 stick if need in future very hard to fit.Also if some 1 could tell me how/if my hard driver is running at 3.0 sata or IDE.

    It will run fine, but I would suggest you wait or buy direct from mushkin. It will be worth the wait. And plus if you buy direct you can get the heatsink switched colors if you like. If they are out of stock on the direct site it is best to call in the AM and ask for sure as sometimes the site is behind a bit.

    I just looked at newegg, you are right alot of the better is gone for now. These are nice though >>>
    Newegg.com - mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    These will also do 1000/1066 just with looser timings >>
    Newegg.com - mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    Does your HD have a jumper on the back of it? If so remove it, if not then it is running at the top speed, IDE or ATA you see in the BIOS is still SATA just worded differently because of lang translations.

    Looks like they are back orderd my be a week or so till back at mushkin ill waite the reason i want 1066 is that at Q9450 3.6 1:1 is 1080 and i think i have a better chance getting that with 1066 ram with tighter timming thxs for the fast answer.I love this board 3 complete builds this year and this is a keeper for sure.Gigabyte overclocks better than ASUS RAMPAGE (brother has)with far less voltge all around.Keep up the great work

    Well 1066 ram IS 800 ram anyway and will show up as such in CPU-z or anything else you look at it with, it is just up to the user to loosen the timings and set speed to 1066.

    Like I said though if you do want a particular stick and they do not have it available online >>>
    But Mushkin Direct- Enhanced Performance Memory

    Call in the AM and ask them if they have stock, they may have some and just didnt update the site >>>

    YA those are supposed to be good. I always wait, newegg has a new sale each week on Mushkins, And new rebates each week. I hate those though, 3 months to get them back

    Well Only issue I know of will be using 4GB wont be fully used. You will see it now in SP3 I think but you still will only be able to use 3.0-3.2 depending on your GFX card. But you likely already know that.

    Nothing else really, all should work out for you great
