i dont think that Corsair is compatible if its 675... never seen that b4. The most you can handle is 667. Go for the OCZ. If you want to play games better, overclock your cpu! looking at you specs, your computer looks extremely overclockable.

Let me know if you need anything else

In many cases, you can put faster RAM modules in and the board will just run them at the fastest speed that it can handle, effectivly underclocking the RAM for you. Unfortunatly, the only way to know is to try.

However, on that board, you will likely never see higher than a 260 FSB anyway, so 667 is more than fast enough.

I also have that MOBO and I am running 1GB (2X512) Corsair XMS 667. Corsair states that the ram is 100% tested at 675 and 1.9V. I have run it at 675 with no problems. Running my P4 630 at 3750 (3.0GHz stock) is Prime95 stable. The recommended timings are 4-4-4-12 or 5-5-5-15. Not sure about lower latencies, I am a level 3 or 4 Noob myself . Good luck. If you wana know about some overclock help, let me know.
