Default Any s939 mobos that can handle 4gigs ram at 1T?

Or will they all default to 2T timings with over 2 gigs of ram?

it's nothing to do with the fact you are using 4gb of memory, it's the fact you will have to use 4 sticks of memory. if you use any more than 3 sticks of memory the s939 Athlon 64's IMC will default the memory to 2T. as such the board does not matter as it's a processor issue.

ah I was unaware of that.

Just setting up a vista rig, wanted to see how well 4 gigs of ram would do.
