Default Asus A8N-SLI Motherboard Memory Question

Sup guys.

I currently have 3GB PC3200 400MHz on my ASUS A8N-SLI board. I have been told that if I put 4GB on the board, that the board cannot support the PC3200 speed. Instead, it will backclock the RAM to act as PC2700 333MHz RAM. Is this true?

If so, is there a BIOS update that will hotfix this issue?

Thanks in advance.

I don't see any reason why it would underclock your RAM, However, I also don't see the reason you'd be running 4GB.
