you may have problems getting thoes to post in that motherboard. That ram needs 2.2v, and your board supplies 1.8v by default.

It says I'll receive them in 1 business day from shipping, must be shipping from the NJ warehouse! :captnkill:

I've got the new revision of my mobo, and the guys over at XS have it posting with 2.2v memory all day long. I'm not too worried, but if I have issues, I'll just buy 256 DDR2 from Best Buy or something and use it to POST my rig.

ty. newegg says its packed. so on monday they'll ship it and i should get it monday because it ships out of south jersey warehouse and i live in south jersey =) Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and hit the buy button. I'm still slapping myself though over spending 350 on ram. :spank:

I've said before and will say again; if you don't have el-cheapo memory to boot with already just try one stick of your performance memory first. This mobo gave me an error when I attempted to boot with both sticks as the bios defaults to 1.84v. When I pulled one stick and booted in single channel mode it was fine. I left one stick in slot one, aka the one closest to the CPU. I increased the voltage and added the second stick after a save and shut down.

p5b is 2.1 max...

Deluxe may be different but vanilla is 2.1 max.

I paid HK$3800 (roughly USD490) for my my dominator 8500C5D + fan. Newegg US doesn't ship internationally otherwise I'd have imported it from the US, and it's even more expensive at newegg.com.cn
