Recommend some RAM for A8R32-MVP and A8N32-SLI

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Can you help recommending some great ram for these ASUS boards?
ASUS A8R32-MVP
ASUS A8N32-SLI

I have heard great news about 2x 1GB OCZ PC4000 EB Platinum Edition...
Or other RAM needed? Anyone any ideas? Ora ny great RAM that is available now?
As I will likely start OCing my CPU to keep that GPU "fed" properly

Now I want to get hold of this RAM as well perhaps, preferably in Europe region...
Does anyone have some URLs perhaps?


In the A8R32-MVP board currently a matched pair of OCZP4002GK is installed...perhaps I will move that to a second A8N32-SLI machine...

Config of A8R32-MVP machine:

Athlon 64 X2 4600+ 3.2 GHz
2 GB 2x1GB OCZP4002GK kit
WD 500 GB WD5002AALX (in SATA II mode via jumper)
WD 2TB WD2001FASS
Sapphire Radeon HD4870 1GB

The 2x 1GB OCZ PC4000 EB Platinum Edition sticks are good to use with the A8N32 board - I've had some good results with these in my board.
As for other bits of info, checkout this thread and ask some of the guys there.

I've got myself a pair of RAM sticks of the 2nd best thing, so to speak...
OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 / 500MHz / 2GB Dual Channel / Platinum XTC Edition OCZP5002GXTC-K

Also any good, or is it a bad choice? I know it is not as good as the EB version, but it is hard to find but I managed to get me this RAM and some similar Mushkin RAM on eBay.

That was some pretty good stuff back in the day. I'd go with whatever you can get a good deal on, seeing as DDR isn't easily obtained nowadays.

Let us know how it goes.

I remember I had 4 sticks of G.Skill PC4000 RAM on my A8R32-MVP, it was just after DDR was phased out so they cost me a fortune on ebay, they were fantastic though.

I will certainly post back here when I've put that OCZ 500MHz PC4000 DDR to the test...

I don't have too much free time to spend on this right now... I am currently working on making an customized winXP install that will go onto that A8R32-MVP later on
