I have an unlocked Barton 2600 and plan to get an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard. Now which memory, Corsair or otherwise, will let me push it the highest? Should I be looking at PC3700 rather than PC3200? Or even PC4000? Thanks, Alex

if you can get your hands on 3500C2 v1.1, 3500C2PT v1.1, 3200LL v1.1 or 3200LLPT v1.1. this should get you a rather high FSB, if your mobo and cpu can handle it. the chips arent made any more (winbond bh-5). with 3200LL v1.2 (what corsair sells now; winbond ch-5) the highest youll get is DDR440-DDR446. you will not be able to raise voltages (highest is 2.7 if your lucky) or run as tight as you like.

I read in the forums that my ram (TwinX Corsair XMS 3200LL ver1.2) is CH-5 and doe not like Volts. So I tested it. 2.6v good 2.7v good 2.8v Prime fails after 51minutes 2.9v Prime fails after 9 minutes 3.0v Prime fails 3.1 Prime fails after 9 minutes 3.2v Prime is liking it 2hrs and counting. 2.6v good to 210 in Memtest86 3.2v good to at lease 230FSB Memtest86 I found other users with similiar results. So whats the real story..
