what i meant is depending on the mobo it may just go to 2T, or go to 2T and slow the ram down to something like DDR333
Man, that sucks, i just ordered the 2 512 sticks corsair valueram.

Gues i'll return it, it there a test i can do to see if it's working o.k at pc 3200 i.e 4000 and not 333 like you said?

Surprised to think the same is true for its predecessors.

2T IS PRETTY GOOD!
