Default Asus P5W DH Deluxe 2GB Sticks RAM

Hi,

I'm currently using 2x 1GB Kingston HyperX 800mhz 4-4-4-12 @ 1:1.
this memory now runs 5-4-4-12 (spd is 5-6-6-18, using memset to set 5-4-4-12), because i'm oc-ing my e6600@3.6Ghz (400FSB), But then my motherboard won't boot using custom timings and i have to use the SPD. Seems like a sort of bug in the board, but that's not the question or discussion i want to raise here.

I want to upgrade to 2x 2GB modules soon.
I'm browsing around for compatibility charts and so on. I found that the TWIN2X4096-6400C5 G http://www.corsairmemory.com/configu...aspx?id=155225
should be compatible with my motherboard. But i want to know if it is possible to use 2 sets (8GB in total) in my motherboard. I couldn't find this info anywhere.
Also i found the TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX on a webshop site near me, but i couldn't find this on the corsair site, i'd like to know if this is compatible with my motherboard aswell...

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

Yes you an use two sets of modules or 8 Gig but you might be limited to DDR667 with this MB.

Ok, is there any reason why i might be limited to DDR667?
Because i can run my current ram on pretty most all speeds (had them on 915Mhz @ 5-6-6-15)

Yes 2 modules should run at 800 MHz no problems. As long as you have a 1066 FSB CPU

Ok, that sounds fair enough.
Can you tell me what the SPD timings are for this memory?
TWIN2X4096-6400C5 G
I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Looked in the pdf and the specs page.
