    I'm waiting for my new parts to come in and I'll put the comp. together myself. I have heard that the nforce2 mobo don't like the kingston hyperx brand of ram. That is what I bought and just need some input from someone that has built one. Has anyone had problems?

    I've bought 4 8RDA based motherboards so far, yes I've had problems with kingston ram. In fact I'd estimate about 10% on the failure rate. It seems some works and some doesn't. The only way to tell is to test the memory with a testing program after you install it. Keep the reciepts though and you'll have no problem exchanging the ones that don't work if you encounter any.

    On the other hand, alot of the kingston ram runs at a much higher speed than what it's marked. My main machine has 2 512mb DDR266 sticks running at DDR333. It's give and take.

    I just built a system with the Nforce2 chipset Soltek SL-75FRN2-RL with 1 stick of Kingston hyperx 512mb works great so far no problem, however I’m not taking advantage of the dual memory channels using one modal, so your experience may be different.

    Thanks for the input, got the parts today and my sister is bringing them to me. I'll let you know if in fact I do have problems on the subject.
