    Default Simplest setup for GA-EP45-UD3P

    Hi all, first post here, and first-time PC builder. I'm having a little trouble deciding which memory to use for the GA-EP45-UD3P. My CPU is the Intel Q6600, probably with stock cooler. One SATA HD, one DVD-RW drive, 512MB video card.

    I have no plans to OC. I want to install 2x2GB RAM. What memory might work best right out of the box with no or minimal tweaking?

    Here are a couple of choices I've found so far:

    Corsair DOMINATOR TWIN2X-4096-8500C5D (CAS 5, Timing 5-5-5-15, 2.1V). I saw some reviews about how I need to change the voltage on these to 2.1 because the board's default is 1.9?

    Corsair TWIN2X-4096-6400C5 (CAS 5, Timing 5-5-5-18, 1.9V)

    Any other suggestions? I'd like to make this as smooth as possible for a first-time build.

    Thanks in advance. This looks like a great forum to get advice.

    Yes, I've seen the G.SKILL name pop up here and there as a good choice for my board. I think I'll go with them. Thanks!

    Keep in mind, if you run faster ram, the board will most likely default it to DDR2-800, so you will need to correct the voltage and divider in order to run it at its faster spec'd speed.
