Just out of curiosity, what system were they not compatable with?... anyway though... I MIGHT be interested, but I am not sure yet. All check back in a few days, if you still have them for sale, I might take them off your hands. :hmm:

These dimms will work with any DDR system, yet in a KG7-RAID environment to populate higher banks (more than 2 slots) ECC Registered Ram is required.

Hehe, sorry, I don't work too much with raid systems....
but what you are saying is that if I get a MB with Raid built in, I will have to get ECC Registered ram?
Also, KG7-Raid? hehe, like I said, I don't know much about raid.
The reason I ask though, is because I am thiking of getting an Epox MB with DDR and built in Raid. Can't remember the name, but it is the KT266a chipset.

Like I said this ram will even work in my system, as it will with the Epox EP-8K7A+ (http://www6.tomshardware.com/mainboard/01q3/010806/amd_760-13.html), the issue is with the KG7-Raid (Raid has nothing to do with the ram issue) It is the AMD 761 chipset that allows for 4 Dimm Slots, yet to populate all 4 ECC Registered is required. On the Epox there are 3 slots and any configuration is permitted. The reasoning for the the ECC in mine is to allow it to use all 4 slots where to use unbuffered can only be done in 2.
Honestly tho I put 4 sticks in and it worked, but I had some problems with IE, it locked up, I pulled the 2 chips I am selling and no more problems with IE6... So I am selling. I have 512 running now 512 sitting on the side, that is High grade Crucial that I will offer a competitive price on. If no one wants it that is fine as I will keep it for another computer I build.
With regard to the actual motherboard. THis Abit KG7 is the best board I have ever owned, the Epox is quite competitive. I would have to use it personally, but I hear they are quite similar yet mine offers 4 DIMM slots. The Raid feature is just in laymen terms a way to merge data on to 2-4 identical disks, you can split the data for speed (Raid 0 striping) or have 2 copies for protection (Raid 1 mirroring). Raid 0+1 exists (Does both of the formentioned) and Raid 5 exists (I have no clue what that does)
An interesting thing I read (WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HARD DRIVES) is Raid Squared! It lets you basically make to computers work in raid, much like a beawolf cluster, but better I think

That clears things up tons. I am not sure yet, but I will see. If I do get a new board and you still have the ram for sale, I'll buy them off of you...
'Til then! :wavey:
