    K8NS Ultra 939 memory confusion?

    On the Gigabyte site it only shows Kingston value ram with a latency of 3 as the required ram. Iam considering getting a K8NS Ultra 939, but have KVR400X64C25/512 (2.5 latency) in an Asus board. I dont want to buy more ram. Is anyone running this 2.5 ram, or any 2.5 ram with the K8NS Ultra 939, and why exclude the 2.5 from the specification?

    Try looking for the mobo on the Kingston site. I've contacted mobo manufacturers before, because of the same thing, and oftentimes found that they're either too lazy to test every individual make/model/capacity of RAM on their boards, or they have something shady going on.

    I'm currently running Geil Ultra X PC3200 on my Ultra 939, and it runs fine, I don't think you'll have any problems.

    EDIT: I mean, you don't see my mobo model on the Geil UX compatibility chart anywhere, but it is running fine...

    Only the 3.0 latency ram is listed for the board with DDR400. The 2.5 is not mentioned at all except with DDR 266? Weird. Kingston value ram has issues, Iam not able to run stable with 2 x 256/1 x 512 in dual mode at 200mhz. Kingston tell me they dont support my current A7N8X Asus DDR400 mobo...Pathetic.

    Gigabyte seem imposible to contact,their so called support link wont open. Useless!
