Asus Blitz Formula Special Edition

Recommended Posts

Hi Ram Guy,

 

I've just bought the new Asus Blitz Formula Special Edition Mobo.

 

I've checked the Memory Configurator and it recommends the following:

 

Enthusiast TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX

Overclocker TWIN2X2048-8500C5D

Extreme TWIN2X2048-9136C5D

 

Does this mobo support using ALL the ram slots with 4GB using any of the ram above?

 

Also does this mobo support: TWIN2X2048-6400C3DF (CAS 3-4-3-9)

I just want to make sure that 4GB will work before I buy the RAM. :[pouts:

 

Any help would be great!

 

Regards,

No only one set at the tested settings. I would suggest Twin2x4096-6400C5DHX if you want 4 Gig or one of the QuadX sets.

 

 

Thanks for the reply.

So if I understand this correctly I cannot use 4GB of either of the ram below:

 

2x TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX or 2x TWIN2X2048-8500C5D ?

 

If so is there a 4GB PC8500 set that would work?

 

Just so its clear before I order that's all.

 

Regards,

Yes but its hard to find because of an IC shortage Twin2x4096-8500C5D or Quadx4096-8500C5DF

 

 

Hi, thanks for all yuor help with this.

 

If I just want 2GB total can I use this ram?

 

TWIN2X2048-6400C3DF (CAS 3-4-3-9)

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes they will run great on any of the newer chipset MB's with a 1066 FSB CPU.

 

 

Hi, ok one last question.

 

When I eventually upgrade to Vista can I run 4GB in total of the ram below on the Blitz Formula Special Edition mainboard at the correct speed?

 

2x TWIN2X2048-6400C3DF (CAS 3-4-3-9)

 

Again thanks for you advice on this!

We only do testing with 4 module if we package as 4x. I had mention"may need to relax timings" since some system may not be capable of running aggressive settings with 4 modules vs 2 modules. The reason is due to the number of banks the memory controller needs to address.
