Quick Asus P5K Deluxe/Wifi-AP question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was looking into whether I should get the above mentioned mobo instead of the Gigabyte P35C DS3R to go with the Q6600 CPU, when I came across a statement on Asus' website that I'm not quite sure what means:

Quote:
4 x DIMM, max. 8GB, DDR2 1066*/800 / 667 MHz, non-ECC, un-buffered memory
Dual channel memory architecture
* The chipset officially supports the memory frequency up to DDR2 800MHz. Tuned by ASUS Super Memspeed Technology, this motherboard natively supports up to DDR2 1066MHz
Please refer to www.asus.com or user manual for Memory QVL.
Does that mean that I need to do something extra to the mobo in order for it to run the Patriot eXtreme Performance 2GB DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) that I'm buying? Or does it mean that they will only run at 800Mhz and therefore might as well get the Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) instead???

Just trying to get my head around all this new stuff
Cheers.
Anders

it means it will downclock your memory (if your memory allows) to ddr2 800.
i think there is a rev'd board out that natively supports 1066 without mem tune.
to get the board to support the 1066 speeds, you have to change it in bios.

the one on the right, same price, but doesn't have the mem tune requirements in the specs
