Summary: For those who need to know: I know the following 2 RAMs (2x4GB for 8GB total) work with this motherboard; 1. G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT (What I'm currently using.) [Can be bought through Newegg.] 2.
Pros: It works as advertised. It works well with my 'old' Intel Q6700 Quad Core (Core Duo) CPU, and GeForce 8800 GTS 512 (G92 GPU) video card. My Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit has shown no problems so far.
Cons: Only one thing, trying to find out what 4-GB DDR3 would work in it was not easy, in fact very frustratingly hard, as they do not list 8GB (2x4GB) in their RAM compatibility list on the website.
Summary: For the price it is a solid motherboard, no problems whatsoever so far, I've had it about 5 months now running daily upwards of 10 hours doing animation, graphics and playing games so I can assure you it has taken some serious abuse in the time.
Summary: I used 2x2 Wintec 1333 ram that I pulled out of another computer and it posted. I know this is an old build but I had the chip collecting dust and found this mobo still available so why not.
Pros: It works great after I found ram that works. I had to pull ram from another CP and then it booted right up and I downloaded W7 in no time. I had an old chip laying around and thought why not give it a new life.
Summary: Oldie,but goodie. I second the review where the reviewer used spare parts for a solid inexpensive build. I really like the Intel e8400 and e8500 processors that I have that use a 775 socket. I only need dual cores and overclockers used to love these trays--as do I. This board has the 775 socket.
Summary: If the ram is available for it, it's a good buy. Technology is leaving lga775 behind in the dust so think about upgrade and use of PC before buying.
Pros: Seems solid, No issues. Onboard video if needed.
Cons: Price is a touch high. Sata II, 8GB ram max. I knew those things going in but It seems to be a bit finicky with ram modules. Some simply won't work. Check the ram list and make sure it's available.
Cons: Ordered board once and it did not work. I asked for a replacement and that one also did not work. My processor works fine(intel e8400 lga775 running on current Comp) and my RAM is brand new, my power supply is also new along with my comp shell and heatsink fan. All this thing does is power on and...
