Current mb is an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe with 1gb ram (2x512MB Twin-X) running in dual channel and an xp2200 thoroughbred oc@200x9.5

Anything above that speed on an oc causes issues, so I'm always looking for other possible solutions that will let me achieve higher speeds (on an EPoX 8rda+ I did this .. EPoX-OC (http://overclocked.bluefrogcs.com) )

Anyway, while researching my next mb (lanparty nf4 sli), I read this in the manual:

A DIMM's SPD is originally fixed at 1T. When modules are inserted
in DIMM 1 and DIMM 3, the SPD must be 2T for better system
stability. We recommend inserting DIMMs in DIMM 2 and DIMM 4.

Is this the same for the A7N8X series of mb, where the ram being used in a specific pairing of slot can affect the performance? Currently, I am populating dimm a-2 and b-1 for my dual channel .. should I in fact be using the a-1 + b-1 combination?

Thanks in advance

I own the Lanparty board you want. Dimms 2 and 4 are the dual channel configs. I am running 1T on that.

try to change your ram votage from 2.6 to 2.7 that may help and consider that maybe that all you can get out of your cpu and you can try to run your memory at 166MHz. 50% or 83% give it a shot you would have to test it. hope that helps :cool:
