    The 996998 kit works well on SB, and because CPU overclocking is done by multiplier rather than BCLK on SB the memory does not play much of a role in CPU overclocking. The difference between those two kits is the heat spreaders.

    The 996998 kit will work fine on most platforms. They will overclock some, but not as well as a Redline kit. What platform are you going to be using, SB, AM3?

    That kit will work well on SB, but you would need to run them at DDR3-1866 or hope they will overclock to DDR3-2133 as SB does not have a memory multi for DDR3-2000. For a few $ more you can get the 996996 kit that is rated for DDR3-2133

    Hi Steve, You should not have any problems with adding 2 more 1GB sticks to this system. If you were going to overclock or get performance memory, then 2X2GB is better, but at CL9 1333 you should not have any issues with 4X1GB.

    If you test each stick by itself at 6-8-6-24 @ DDR3-1600 with MemTest is there any difference between the sticks? For example does one stick get errors and the others do not?

    Are you using the latest BIOS for the mobo? Try these settings, (Use the outer ram slots) DRAM Configuration> Set Memory Clock: Manual Memory Clock: x6.66 DDR3 Timing Items: Manual CAS# Latency: 7 RAS to CAS R/W Delay: 7 Row Precharge Time: 7 Minimum RAS Active Time: 20 1T/2T...

    I would still go with those modules they have the most potential. The timings/frequency depends mainly on the chips used, but how the engineers tune the BIOS also plays a large role.

    This kit was designed to work on Intel 1156, on those boards the memory will easily do 6-8-6-24 1T. On AM3 this kit will do CL6 to about DDR3-1500, from there up CL7. Generally the DDR3-1600(x8.00) memory multiplier will not POST at CL6 with this kit, CL7 works fine. To get CL6 you would use...

    Either of these kits will work on AM3, but the frequencies and timings are for Intel 1156, you may not get the same frequencies and timings when using them on AM3. What mobo and CPU are you going to get?

    Mushkin Support Thread

    It could be that the mobo just needs a BIOS update, hopefully you'll be able to get the BIOS with the value stick. Have you checked to see if you have any bent/out of place pins in the CPU socket, or if the CPU cooler is causing problems? Do you get the same symptoms if you try to start the...

    Yes the Redlines will work in your P5Q and you can run 8GB worth, but you may need to reduce the memory frequency to obtain stability with 8GB. As you already have 4GB of the Blacklines you are probably best to just get 4GB more of the Blacklines. The Blacklines are rated higher so you are more...

    4GB is enough memory for most people, you can always get more if you need it. Yeah shipping from North America to Europe is expensive and can be a huge hassle. Just go to Mushkin Europe ;)

    The only difference between these 2 kits is the heat spreaders. ;) It is against company policy for me to discuss what ICs are used.

    Generally 1.325V to 1.375V is more than enough QPI/DRAM voltage for CL6 @ DDR3-1600. Some of the better CPUs are capable of doing it with less voltage.

    If you can find a set of 998692 or 998691 either will work with your current memory, 998691 is the same except it has the smaller Frostbyte heat spreader. If you need to get a new kit the 998805 kit will work, but you'll need to go with the 6-8-6-24 timings.

    The simple answer is no, not at this time. The AM3s don't do well with this type of low voltage memory, on the 1:4 (DDR3-1600) multiplier the best they generally do is CL8. They would work better on the 1:3.33 divider, not sure if they will get to CL6 though, I have not had a chance to test...
