    Default Best RAM for EP45-DS4

    Hello

    I am looking at buying this mobo and want to know which RAM would be the best, in performance but also to work straight out of the box.

    From what I see, if you buy corsair dominator 1066 or OCZ 4GB Kit (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 Reaper Memory HPC Edition Dual you would have to change normal set voltage to 2.1 from the standard mobo set voltage of 1.8v, is that correct? If this is so how would one get it to boot up in the first place to get into BIOS, so I am worried this might be too much for me, a first time PC builder.

    Is there a simple memory but still giving near enough the same performance? I do into to overclock CPU later, so memory should easy to handle that as well.
    Suggestions welcome.

    cheers

    No, those will boot at 1.8V, then you can change them to 2.1. If you do buy them, put only on stick in slot one and go in the BIOS and change the voltage to 2.1 and save and shut down and put in the rest of the ram.

    Any ram will run this way, most any voltage ram will start at 1.8V so you will be fine

    I do suggest Mushkin though if you can get them where you live

    Hello everybody!

    I am thinking it is not necessary to make a new thread as the question I want to dig is absolutely same. So already bought some parts for PC:

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS4 (rev.1.0) BIOS-?
    Intel E8400 (step. E0)
    Noctua NH C12P
    Radeon GV-R487X2-2GH-B
    Samsung 640GB
    PSU Zalman ZM-750HP
    Case NZXT Lexa Blue Line

    RAM decided to be bought is Team Xtreem Dark DDR2 2x2GB TXDD4096M1066 HC5-D (Mushkin, G.Skill, or Geil are not available in my region ). So:


    1. what do you thing about this kit? Is this one compatible with MB (especially regarding voltage)? And;


    2. if it is o.k. what BIOS settings will be the best (for this moment without overclocking the system)?


    Cheers

    John

    Yeap, that ram should work fine for you. Settings would all depend on what CPU speed you are running and all that. So once you get build let me know and I can help you along
