I have these two: [url]http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=20-145-431-05.jpg/20-145-431-03.JPG[/url] I have 3 memory slots (2 currently occupied), but I can only have 4 banks total of memory to stay at 400 mHz FSB. I want to add this stick to take me to a gig of RAM: [url]http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=20-145-464-03.jpg/20-145-464-01.JPG/20-145-464-02.JPG[/url] This would then occupy my 3rd slot giving me over a Gig of RAM. This is my setup: K8T Neo FIS2R Bios 1.7 (made by MSI) Athlon 64 bit 3400 2 X 256 Corsaire XMS PC3200LL Slots 1 & 3 (timings: 2-3-2-6) [2.7 V] Antec Tru Power 550 Windows XP Pro

[quote name='Wired']Are the 3200LLs TwinX? The 512 you are showing there is C2, and isn't recommended with the LLs (different timings). Try the LL version.[/QUOTE] yes they are TwinX. do you mean this one? [url]http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?style=album[/url]

[quote name='Wired']That is CMX512-3200LLPRO, so yes, that should work fine. However, what version is your current memory? Also, the bank question is still unanswered, I'd wait for an answer on that before you get the memory.[/QUOTE] I have ver. 1.1 I believe. also, I can run 4 banks and still have 400 FSB. I am pretty sure that the sticks I have now are only 2 banks total. So the stick I want to buy CANNOT be more than 2 banks but should be safe. MIS and my board have major issues with Corsaire. Many are told to steer clear, but I already own two sticks and they were expensive and I will be damned if I have to go with something else. Here's my rig: K8T Neo FIS2R Bios 1.7 Athlon 64 bit 3400 2 X 256 Corsaire XMS PC3200LL (Twinx) Slots 1 & 3 (timings: 2-3-2-6) [2.7 V] this is exactly what my RAM sticks say: CMX256A-3200LL XMS3205v1.1 0308120

You would need to match the module exactly to what you have now only CMX512-3200LL Rev 1.1 The Pro version will not work in this MB with the modules you have now! Sorry! The other choice would be to find another use the memory you now have and just get a Twinx1024-3200LLPro instead!

What is my option if I only wish to purchase 1 stick or RAM?

[quote name='RAM GUY']I am sorry the only choice would be to try and find a Non Pro module that is the same revision as what you have now, CMX512-3200LL Rev 1.1![/QUOTE] what if I just scrap my two sticks and get these: [url]http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-145-486&depa=0[/url] TwinX2048-3200 how many banks total are on these two sticks??? Remember, I can only use 4 banks to stay at 400 FSB.

[quote name='RAM GUY'][B]Well I dont know that you would ever really need more than 1.0 Gig of memory[/B], but who knows what Microsoft will do next! Unless you are into Linux? :eek: :bomb: :bling:[/QUOTE] hey, I can try turning off page files or reducing them. that might speed up my system if I am not doing video editing and too much multitasking.
