Intel DG965WH with TWIN2X2048-6400C4

Is anybody running TWIN2X2048-6400C4 with the Intel DG965WH motherboard. I used the memory configurator to find this memory selection.

Is this combination really combatible? Will it work without a dought?

The specs from the intel website say to use 1.8v only.

But I have noticed the memory is 2.1V

Should I trust the Corsair memory configurator ?:confused:

Initially my DG965WH with Twin2x2048-6400 5-5-5-12 1.9v RAM booted and ran fine. I have read that the latest Intel BIOS automatically detects 1.8v or 1.9v RAM. Therefore, I updated the BIOS to 1176 successfully. After that I benchmarked with 3DMark05. Then the machine would not start. Fans twitched every few seconds. I tried many things including clearing CMOS but no good. I have read similar stories on other forums. Therefore, I do not believe this board is compatible with this RAM. I am planning to RMA board and try again with Corsair Value RAM 677 1.8v.

I almost bought that Ram. I cancelled the order at the last horn blow.

I am actually running some 533 Value Ram that I borrowed from a friend.

I want to go with PC-6400 when I purchase my own. I just do not know which PC-6400 is safe to buy for this motherboard. I don't mind paying more, but I want good performance for my Dollar.
