    Not many people around here running AMD, and you're the first guy I see posting about that board. I don't think you'll get a defintive answer here unfortunately.
    Mushkin is good RAM and is int thev ast majority of cases compatible, but I can't guarantee anything. Your chances of it running are as big as with any other memory though.

    Thanks for the reply. I have sent an email to mushkin. I will post it here. That way if anyone else has that board it may help.

    I believe it would be fine as I have used Mushkin in MANY GA Boards, but I have not used ANY AMD boards so I also could not advise for sure.

    You could also ask at the Mushkin Forums >>>

    Edit: fixed formating firefox noscript blocking tweaktown. =P

    Hey man i currently have the exact same motherboard and a triple core 710 and these DDR3 <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820161279" target="_blank">Newegg.com - WINTEC AMPX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory</a> running great.

    I currently run a watercooled system with a 4870x2 and a 550W antec neopower. (i know i can't believe that psu can run my 4870x2!!)

    I been planning on overclocking but still running stock for the last 3 days.. been busy recovering my data. Big tip for anyone upgrading!
    Getting too anxious on putting my new rig together forgot that when you run a RAID 0 and switch motherboards that use a different raid controller it will most often never detect your existing raid.

    So in my case my 2x640GB raid 0 which was nearly full can't be read and are detected as single drives. So now i have my old ass opteron rig booting up as a spare with my raid drives getting ready to transfer all the data over the network to my 1.5tb drive once thats done slap the raid back in my new rig rebuild and copy from the 1.5tb back to the new raid..

    weeeeeeee fun for me. =P well at least i get my data back. I will overclocking soon in a day or two i hope to make my cheap wintec hit 1666 with enough voltage and get my triple core up to 3.8 minimum.

    I will post my settings let you know when i get. Its nice to know i am not the only amd guy here. =)

    Sounds like you both will be up and running in no time!

    Good to hear, sorry about your RAID misfortune dred210!

    I thought they would be fine, the Mushkins, just did not want to say yes for sure as I have not used AMD so I wasn't for sure if anything would be different
