    my brothers done it.

    Depends on the board, various boards have issues with 4x sticks of ram beyond 800MHz. commonly, they just need higher volts to either the ram or northbridge to counter it.

    Tried higher volts on ram and NB no go :(. The Transends did it but there 4 GB not 8GB total.

    I asked Patriot if these worked ok with this mobo and they said yes with in 24 hours of asking. But now i ask them about 2 kits and there not replying.

    Going get in touch with G.Skill see what they say about there's... I guess i'll give crucial a buzz too lol..

    Well G.Skill said there's would work but there like $144 a kit on egg and not even D9's from what they told me in there last e-mail.

    Don't think i'm up to spending $300 on ram lol.

    as for crucial they only recommend the slower ram for my mobo :|..
