    After getting tired of messing around trying to OC with the PC2100 I have, decided to bite the bullet and upgrade to PC3200. The OCZ EL dual-channel recently reviewed in Tweaktown seemed like a good buy, and I ordered two sticks of 256MB in from NewEgg. I powered down, installed the new sticks, and my Asus Voice Post lady told me that I failed my memory test :cry: . After trying a few configurations, went back to my old RAM which wouldn't boot either. After clearing the CMOS, the 2100 booted, so tried the 3200 again....still failed to boot with stock BIOS settings (Auto). I was asked if this RAM is compatible with my board, and the mobo is rated for PC3200, but have no idea whether this particular brand is compatible. Am I doing something wrong in my BIOS settings? Will this memore even work with my mobo? I'm looking into it, but if someone has experience to share, I'd sure appreciate it. :cheers:

    OK, finally got through on the Asus support pages....OCZ isn't on their list of supported memory. :cry: In fact, there isn't ANY CL2 memory in their list. Is there a way to make it work anyway, or do I need to send this back for something else on the list? I'd sure like to use it...from specs and reviews, it looks to be great performing stuff.

    So....you're saying it's crap and I should send it back and spend a few bucks more on Corsair? Corsair was mentioned specifically as having an issue working on the A7N8X board...

    Well I do but then I know of ppl who run Corsair in their's but here's something that may work for ya, stick ya PC2100 in and raise the voltage to the memory and then do the swap. ;)

    Ummmm....I'm not sure how to do that. :o There's a CPU voltage adjustment, but I don't see a specific RAM voltage adjustment.

    You may have to change the memory settings from auto to user defined to get the voltages as well as other timing settings up. ;)

    OK, I am now typing at you on OCZ PC3200...:D
    Yeah Wiggo, I looked at the specs for the RAM and manually put them all in, and upped the voltage by 1.5 volts. I'll have to try some OC and tell ya how it goes ;)
    And yes, 2 sticks of DDR 256MB to enable the dual-channel feature. I'll be back later after some tweaks and benchmarks...wish me luck! :thumb:
