hi. i am building 2 new computers and have a compatability question. i have purchsed 3 sets of corsais xms series memory so far and they have different numbers. the numbers are as follows. cmx512-3200pro xms3202v1.1 xms3200 512mb 400mhz cl2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- cmx512-3200llpro xms3205v1.1 xms3200 512mb 400mhz 2326 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- cmx512-3200c2pro xms3202v2.1 xms3200 512mb 400mhz cl2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- my question is would there be any incompatability issues with using 2 sets of these in the same computer? any help would be very helpful thank you-

[QUOTE]CMX512-3200LLPRO XMS3200 512MB 2-3-2-6 184 DIMM Black XMS ProSeries CMX512-3200C2PRO XMS3200 512MB 2-3-3-6 * 184 DIMM Black XMS ProSeries * These parts support 2-3-3-6 latency on Intel platforms, and 2.5-3-3-6 latency on AMD platforms. [/QUOTE] Assuming that it is C2, then according to those specs, you'd have to relax it to either 2-3-3-6 or 2.5-3-3-6 (highest common denominator) depending on whether or not it's AMD or Intel. Can someone confirm this plz?

Well, here's the thing: I don't think Corsair makes a CMX512-3200PRO module, which would probably be a CAS 3 module. The fact that you list "cl2" under it means it has to be a CAS 2 module which also means it has to be either: CMX512-3200[b][color=blue]C2[/color][/b]PRO Or CMX512-3200[b][color=blue]LL[/color][/b]PRO However, the xms320[b][color=blue]2[/color][/b]v1.1 makes me think it's a C2 module whereas the LL would probably say xms320[b][color=blue]5[/color][/b]. Putting all this gibberish together... I think you can run the first and last modules together without too many problems, but may not be able to run CAS 2 with them. All you can do is try it and test it with [url=www.memtest86.com]Memtest86[/url]. If you get errors, back off the timings to CAS 2.5 - 3 - 3 - 7 @ 2.7x volts. I'm also taking it that by saying "sets" you mean to say you've bought three TwinX packs and have six total modules. For your mainboard, be sure to put matching modules in corresponding DIMM slots... That means 1 & 3 and 2 & 4 should match. PLUR CK
