Question RAM/Mobo compatibility question...

Ok, most of my comp stuff just arrived today (still waiting on case & HD), and I was reading the mobo manual. It's the P4P800 SE from Asus, and I was reading the "Qualified Vendor List" table, which lists the DDR400 Modules that have been tested and qualified for the mobo and there were 3 model #s for Kingston. Well, I have x2 256 DIMMs (retail) from Kingston and the product model# is KVR400X64C3AK2/512, and this number isn't under the table. Does that mean that I can't use these Modules or that they just haven't been tested and qualified (yet)?

So I guess it's not listed probably because it just hasn't been tested? Ok, for a moment there I thought that I would have to return it and go through a long wait. Thanks a bunch.

I just checked the Kingston website, and here's what they had to say regarding that particular motherboard and ValueRAM:

"Virtually any configuration up to 4GB can be reached using any combination of Kingston's 128, 256, 512MB, and 1GB modules."

You're good to go
