Great board... nice layout... however DO NOT! get Value RAM (either Corsair or OCZ) whatever brand... I recommend you spend a little extra money on the RAM... this board is extremely picky concerning RAM... Otherwise it's a great board... I ordered the ZALMAN 7700 CU FAN and it sits PERFECTLY on the board... very exciting!

Ok that was from a review on newegg .. off of the DFI Lanparty Ut nF4 ultra D atx amd mobo

...... My question is what ram should I get....????


So really I should just get the 3800+????

Atleast a GiG

Alittle pricey, but youll thank yourself later for it. Good timings, and overall a great ram.

Well its decent, but it lacks heat spreaders, but you can pick them up at newegg, cuz wit two gigs your gonna be putting out some heat(remember Heat+Computer=death) Do you really need two gigs? I mean, if your budget allows it, go for it.

the link you put was OC ram? because wasn't it like 175 for only 1gig and the value ram I put a link to was 200? Also where can i get heat spreaders?<==what kind is the best?

Also I donno ..... my budget is about max now....1500!!)))) yes You heard it

1500<===Parents said: Quote: Make up a list of the parts and then show me the price and we'll talk.... so .... basicly I'm gonna have to kick in 300 and they'll spend 1200

Though keeping in mind I don't have to go up to 1500.....

Heat spreaders arent much, like 20 bucks for two, you can get them at newegg.com. the link i gave was to corsair, you get better performance, but, granted your going to 2gigs so any lack my take it up, just with shear size, so go ahead.

did valueselect ram is OK. not all the reviews on newegg are right anyways

anyays if you aint Ocing dont waste the money on expensive ram, aka XMS.

anyways valueselect can do some OC, and you can always run the divider
