I'm about to get this board very soon.... but I've read a lot of issues about memory compatibility.

The board is:

MSI NForce 2 Ultra 400 Delta - L

Does anyone here have this board and if so what memory they use?
(brand.timing.settings) and any issues?

Just would like to avoid the damn'd RMA process if I can :)

Thanks,

Clint Thompson

hehe I see a whole bunch of problems with that board and Kingston HyperX memory everyday at work.

Corsiar, Bufflo, Mushkin, all seem to work well though.

hmm...

well how about Geil? Newegg has some good prices on that 512MB right now... then there's Kingston but ya know ;)

hmmm.. Not too sure about Geil... Geils modules are pretty good though.. I really doubt you would have any problems with them. Kingston HyperX has issues with a number of boards, but it seems to hit the K7N2 series the worst.

Not the boards fault though... it's actually a very nice board:)

Not considered the Abit boards? The NF7-S (and the lesser derivatives) is a very nice board indeed.

Geil used to have loads of probs... dunno what it's like now...

Check the MSI board in the forum in my sig....

look, I'll be honest. The NF7-S is the best motherboard ever.

I am using 2x 512MB Geil PC4000 Ultra Platium with the very board as we speak, it has been excellent.

I am also using 2X512MB Geil PC3200 DDR RAM modules. Dunno what model but they have a blue heat spreader on them. 2.5 CL, 6-3-3 timings. Been running great with no problems.

Yep... those are the exact ones I'm looking to get :)

Guess I'll be picking them up as so far I've heard nothing but good really.

Abit... ah... I hear a lot of people telling me to go with Abit... but I already have chosen the MSI board so.. meh :)

Forget about it and buy a Gigabyte board for the same and is reportedly more stable than MSI....

The nForce does have problems with high speed memory like mine does and thats due to the memory not working at tight timings which the board will automaticly set, so if it's your first time it will not boot at all as it doesn't seem to read the SPD setting on the memory as it sets it up as 2/4/4/7 and it won't boot.
