Hello, I wish to buy memory Corsair (Corsair TWINX 2x256 Mo DDR-SDRAM PC3200 Low Latency), and I would like to know if there is no problem of compatibility with the mother cards Chaintech 7NJS chipset N Forces 2. Thank you . P.S : Sorry for this poor english but i'm frenchie :sigh!:

Thx for ur answer !! Bah i ll use an Athlon XP Barton 2800+, i know i need a FSB @ 333 Mhz, but i read in the statistics of my mother board : Dual Channel 400 Mhz ( Support modules Dual-Channel DDR PC1600/2100/2700/3200 ). In fact , i just wanted know if the memories Corsair don't have problems with my type of mother board.

Should be no problem, but the CPU you have is not a 200 FSB CPU and you would need to set the memory at the Same freq. as your CPU for best stability and performance. If the FSB of your CPU is 400 For Intel and 100 MHz for AMD, the memory speed supports only DDR 266. If the FSB of your CPU is 533 For Intel and 133 MHz for AMD, the memory speed supports DDR 266/333 If the FSB of your CPU is 800 MHz for Intel and 200 MHz for AMD, the memory speed supports DDR 333/400 Please try this as an example, CPU Freq:166Mhz Memory Freq: 100% Resulting Frequency: 166MHz SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T And In would set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and leave any performance setting to AUTO or bios default. But if you try to run the memory at DDR400 or at default settings and the CPU at 166 MHz it will cause a bottleneck in the chipset and may generate random errors that are not from the memory

To touch on this one more time, is it possible to run the 400MHz at a slower speed knowing that at sometime you are going to upgrade the CPU to a 400 FSB? This way I would have the pimp memory to go with the fatser processor. Thoughts?
