yes since asus p5k3 mb is working with ddr3 only. which ddr3 memory is better for non-overclocked cpu


I'm sorry, I haven't worked with any DDR3 and so can not advise you. You will have to wait until RamGuy or someone else who has worked with this DRAM comes to advise you. RamGuy will be back on Monday.


@ RamgGuy


I'll buy the board if you supply the DRAM for testing purposes... :laughing:

I use Asus P5K3 Deluxe, Intel E6850 and Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9. It boots up fine with default BIOS settings.


I do have a question, though. When I try to install Windows 64 Bit XP Pro, the system reboots. I'm not sure if it is a memory problem. I've updated to the latest Asus BIOS (7.04) which said to address DIMM problems. In Windows Setup, it reboots, usually at the point of loading the NTFS driver. At first I suspected the SATA/AHCI driver, but it does the same thing when the SATA drives are disconnected from the system. Any ideas?
