    Default 8 gigs ram on ep45-ud3p

    I want to be able to run 8 gigs of memory on my board, and i know that it is hard to get stable with 1066 speeds and 8 gigs, but would i be able to get stabe with say 1000 or 800 mhz memory or even with 1100 or 1066 running at lower speeds, i am looking at these.

    I'd go for the Mushkin 996599, but I'm rather biased.

    1066 is not guaranteed, but does happen, 800 MHz is the worst you'd do.
    With the difference in price, $12 at Newegg, just get the higher rated sticks.

    Agreed. The Mushkins are a nice set. Shame there's not much in the way of DDR2 choice in the UK now, most of the variety has gone, as DDR3 takes over the world.

    I'm not biased toward Mushkin though, so I'd also recommend the 1066 and above GSkill Pi range, as well as Crucial Ballistix (2.0V versions) and any corsair DDR2 of XMS2 quality or higher (not their value range). And if you do get the Mushkin, get the 1066.

    I have no problems with stability on my EP45-UD3P with 8GB of 1066 RAM, sorry, its not mushkin.

    Been stable at 3, 3.4, 3.6, 3.89, 4.0, and 4.25GHz. Granted that I always use a strap that keeps my memory near or under 1066MHz and use the 1066MHz Driving Strength.
