I've been offered some Corsair XMS RAM for a pretty good price but I haven't gotten my fsb higher than 215mhz so I'm not sure if I should jump on the deal. Is that something thing that I should expect or is there something I'm not doing? If that sounds about right, I'm guessing that I should pass on the deal since I won't be able to OC the RAM at all.

Set a real low multiplyer on the CPU and drop the RAM down to 133 or 100 and see how high you can get the FSB stable!

I've tried that already, but seems like everytime I got higher than 215, it crashes, so I was curious what are some speeds to expect with this board.

The highest I've seen on sktA boards was 240 on a NF7 (stable speeds, not suicide shoots). You won't get much above 210 on those boards (any sktA board).

Did you up the chipset voltage any?<br>
BTW, it the XMS offer you have ups the volume go for it but try to keep to 2 total modules. If not move along and save your $$$

I thought I already wrote that, seems that that was the post that I was trying to post while the computer crashed.

actually, there are some socket a cpus/mobos that can do 333 mhz (I think only semprons support 333 mhz though) I assume that your motherboard is only officially supposed to do 200. I would get the RAM if you ever plan to upgrade to a socket 939. If you think you're going to go ddr2, then I wouldn't get it unless it's a really good deal. How cheap is it?
