the way it always is, msi has fairly unbeatable features, like gigabyte, as well

except for the k8n neo plat by msi, midway for both

nowadays, though, its DFI that rule the day in overclocking

ultra infinity 2 for sock a, lanparty 250gb for 754 and i believe 939

DFI/Abit are in a close battle; with the right board/bios they soar high in FSB speed

I bought a Corsair XMS RAM, 512MB, PC3200 (400) DDR-SDRam/DIMM, 184pin.

...and if i put the CAS Latency to 2 it wount run right...

CPU : AMD Athlon 2800+

hmmm.. that's weird; I had no problem running Corsair sticks @ tights timings with this motherboard.

what does MSI support say about this? or Corsair?

It's weird that Memtest would pass but windows would hang? might lead to believe that another components might be causing the problems?

so you have no issues running the ram at CL2.5 or CL3?
