Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe

Hi,

 

I am currently upgrading my computer and I am buying a new motherboard. The motherboard is the: Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe. And I am looking to put some SLI ready memory on it. I have found somewhere that sells the

TWIN2X1024-5400C4 memory but I am not sure if it is compatiable. The motherboard supports max 8Gb DDR2 800/667/533 or PC2- 4300, PC2- 5400, PC2- 6400 non-ECC memory. However I see that the TWIN2X1024-5400C4 is 675 so I am not sure if it is compatiable.

 

This is where I plan to buy it from:

Hi,

I am really stuck with which memory to get for my Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe motherboard! It says on the Asus website that it supports DDR2 553/667/800 however in the manual it only has 553/667 certified memory modules listed and I have also noticed this problem in other threads! And the Ram guy said that the chipset (nForce4 SLI x16 Intel edition) doesn't support DDR2 800!

So what I have seen is the TWIN2X2048-5400C4 which is compatible. Or I am willing to risk some DDR2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 (DDR2 800) memory as I have noticed that other people have used this memory and had it work! And the ram guy also recommends it for this motherboard.

 

The main thing I plan to use my Pc for is Gaming and I am also going to install SLI graphics, so I want fast, reliable memory and I have heard that higher memory speeds with higher latency's are better than lower memory speeds with lower latency's! Which is why I am considering the 6400c4 memory even though the 5400c4 is SLI-ready. BUT..... I understand that you only really need SLI memory for EPP compatible motherboards, which only applies to the nForce 570 & 590 chipsets, and mine is neither of those and therefore doesn't support EPP memory!

 

Ohhhhhh... It's so confusing!:confused: :confused:

 

Can someone recommend some memory compatible with the specs I have noted!!

 

Thanks in advance ;):
