    Is your sig correct and you really have a 3.2c?

    Then why did you get PC4000?

    That is for one, a waste as you can't run it at full speed unless you can handle 4Ghz...

    And two, the timings are just crappy. You are left with an underperforming setup that cost too much. Can you still return it?

    It's just that if you run it at DDR500 (default guaranteed speed) your CPU will be at 4Ghz...which means you have to underclock it, and even then it still sucks because of the slow timings. Its really only good on the top end as far as you can overclock it.

    I would probably recommend HyperX 3200/3500.

    Some good fast timed (low latency) PC3500 would've been better for ya.
