  1. Would someone be able to direct me to a site or list the memory speeds that an asus a8n-sli deluxe mobo teamed with an athlon 64 x2 4200 is compatible with. Someone in another post said they were using ddr500, can the dual cores handle faster ram than the athlon 64's? :chef:

    :wave: Hello & Welcome to TechSpot :wave:

    If you go to Asus' site and search for the motherboard model, you'll find, surprise surprise, all the information about the motherboard, including what you're looking for.

    But since I'm such a nice guy, you can just click here. But next time, check the manufacturers site for specs first...

    To answer the second part of your question, it is no problem running with faster ram, it just reverts to a speed the motherboard can support...
