DFI LP 875B PRO REV B. & Corsair?

I have this old 875 chipset board DFI Lanparty Pro 875B Rev B running only a 1024 MB of memory at FSB 267. I want to update the memory to have 2048 MB of memory with two 1024 MB sticks or four 512 sticks. I can't find help in finding the best corsair memory to use for this setup to reach that overclock. I am not worried at not being able to get FSB 267 because supposetly this board does FSB 291 and will loose only a few FSB using four sticks. So I am thinking that reaching max FSB 267 would be fine with some PC4200 or PC4400. Yet I don't know which corsair these days are still available and will work with this board. Any suggestions?

 

Best I could find was two of these TWINX10244400C25PT or if I can get four of those sticks cheaper. I hear I wont run dual channel when all four banks are useds, thats okay, better have 2048 MB of memory than the boost of dual channel and application acceleration.

Do the twinx2048-4400 PRO work on 875 chipsets since newer memory (1024 MB sticks) were made for AMD SLI configurations? Maybe to be sure, I should get the TWINX2048-4000PT which are tested on a ASUS P4C800 Deluxe which is canterwood too, giving me an FSB 250 only cause I think those are overclocked PC 3200 and probably don't do more than stock speed.

The last ones (Twinx/XMS4400V1.1 512MB) are shown and are TCCC based, so maybe that can help you determine which of the two, Twinx2048-4400 Pro or Twinx2048-4000 PT would be best.

The 2gb kit of 4400 will work fine with the 875 chipset MOBOs. Also, your other option of 4 x 512mb of PC4400C2.5 should work "IF" you get 4 identically matched DIMMs. However, you will lose OCing headroom and you may have tweak the bios more, such as raising the latencies some.
