c2d on the way and im worried ... p5n-e sli

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ive been reading the newegg reviews and i now find out that the Asus p5n-e SLI 650i is having problems booting up, having problems with ram, etc....
4/7 people said the super talent 2x 1gb worked for them and the other 3 said it didnt...should i be worried? almost 1 out of every 10 people had something bad to say but overall there was a 4/5 review

nah. just make sure your ram is not too highly clocked. start at stock. Sometimes users get defective ram (like I did with my gskill that cant run smoothly at 800mhz) but those are selective cases. the ram itself is compatible with the Asus board.

Just setting your FSB to 333 will get you to 2664. So I highly doubt that would give you any trouble.
