All the reviews for this ram are kinda old... pre nforce2... but I've heard that corsair's ram does pretty good with nforce2 mobo's...

This is 150/300 cas2.0 ram...

My samsung 166/333 cas2.5 ddr does 200 no probs in my 8RDA, and also in a Chaintech 7NJL1 and a Bistar MC7ND...

should I expect the same from this ram?

The Corsair that I picked up works like a charm w/my Abit NF7-S 2.0 - something you might want to look out for is that the Optimal settings for memory in the BIOS weren't agressive enough and were causing problems. If I left my PC alone for 10 minutes after booting up, it would freeze solid. If I did something with it immediately, then I experienced no problems. I did a search for the rated memory timings and upped my timings appropriately. Haven't had a problem with it since.

Wow.. I've never heard of such a thing, memory that needs aggressive timings:)
Now I remember why I love Corsair memory so much:D

well, that cas2 @ PC2400 basically means those chips probably could be sold as cas2.5 PC2700, or MAYBE cas3.0 PC3200...

I think I'll try it out shortly in my already assembled 8RDA+ ...
