I havent had any issues with my ds3r. I've had 3 different brands of memory in it so far, and have actually run mixed pairs of memory at the same time. Excellent board. Just remember ctrl-f1 in the bios to get to the advanced memory options.

You can set the required RAM voltage, without the pressing of CTRL+F1.

CTRL+F1 is to set the timings of the RAM.

okay, must I change th timings for Corsair XMS 800MHz CAS 4-4-4-12?

And I think I'm going to go with the GA DS3R.

You should set the timings to it's manufacturer's spec. Since it was designed to run at those settings.

Okay.

And I might as well ask if you think it'd be worthwhile paying £3 more for the GAP35C DS3R Mobo? Which supports DDR3..

Not really worthwhile. DDR3 is too much at the moment, and they won't be mainstream for some time, while DDR2 is at it's all time low. And having a motherboard that supports more than one type of RAM, is usually quirky.
