Default Chaintech 9CJS Zenith and GEIL DDR433?

OK I've got my Chaintech 9CJS Zenith Mobo currently with 2x256mb of cheapo DDR333 and want to upgrade that to 2x512mb of something. At first since it said that it only supported DD266/DDR333/DDR400, so I thought I could only get DDR400, but it says in the compatible RAM list that it supported PC4000 Corsair RAM??

I in the compatible RAM list though it doesn't mention any type of GEIL RAM though?? It has to be able to use GEIL RAM though right?? And do you think it will support the PC3500??

Here is the Mobo link 9CJS Zenith

Here is the RAM link DDR433

And to confuse the situation even more, which would be faster, running 2x512mb DDR400 synchronuously with the 800fsb or 2x512mb DDR433 agianest the 800fsb???

And no I will not OC the FSB

if the board supports DDR400, it cannot run DDR433 anyway so that is one prob solved.
I think Geil is fairly good, and should be supported.
