Asus A8R-MVP and CMX512-3200C2 (X4)?

Hi there,

 

I'm currently running my system with 2 sticks of CMX512-3200C2 matched pairs. I want to upgrade to 2GB of memory, so that would be 4 sticks of CMX512-3200C2 populating all 4 slots. Now i read in my asus user's guide that the motherboard doesn't support all 4 slots being populated by my ram running in dual channel mode...

 

Is this true?

 

-Also-

What's the best voltage to use with CMX512-3200C2, I'm OC'ing with a HTT of 240MHz and my timings are 2.5-3-3-5.

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately, 4 sticks of double-sided memory modules will seriously hurt your overclocking capability. You may have to go with a memory clockspeed of 166MHz (DDR333/PC2700) or even 133MHz (DDR266/PC2100) if you run four double-sided sticks with your system.

Okay, that's a darn shame, then I guess I'll have to change my memory. What's the best type of corsair memory that I can get that's 512MB DS X4 to populate all 4 slots to equal 2 GB's that will work nicely on my Asus A8R-MVP MoBo and still be able to acheive my 240MHz HTT overclock?

 

I turned my 3200+ Venice core into a 3800+ no problems what so ever, I didn't even have to buy a new heatsink.

 

Gotta have that OC :)

 

--EDIT--

Seeing as I have the Venice core doesn't it have a better memory controller to support 2 GB of ram in all 4 slots at DDR 400?

 

Would I be better off with a kit of 1024MB SD (X2) to keep it at 400MHz?
