Anyone know if this ram is compatible and you don't have to put in crap ram before you install it?

Jake you know?...I think I saw Gskill stuff in yer sig.

eVGA's board won't boot up w/ it installed. You'll get a "C1" code flash on the LED which is a memory error.

I have it in my system. You have to install some of that "crap RAM" that runs at a lower voltage and go into the bios to increase the voltage and speed, then pop the G.Skill in there after a save and a hard shutdown. The eVGA board boots up at 1.8V, I think, which is too low. I've talked w/ jakup, and his has the same issue as mine.

I have my G.Skill DDR21000 stable at 1000mhz w/ 4-4-4-5 timings. It'll probably go higher than that but I really haven't tried to overclock it yet.

This isn't an issue with the G.Skill PC6400 is it?

Not exactly, the RAM chips used simply need a higher voltage to operate correctly.. They don't operate on the standard 1.8V. (specs usually say something like 1.9+ or 2.0-2.1)

So what should I set it at if I want to run the ram at optimal settings? 2.0?
