    Hi all,

    I'm about to buy the above board and I see from the Crucial web site (UK)
    that it supports PC2-3200 and PC2-4200. Would like to buy from the
    'Ballistix' range (2x512 DDR2 PC2-4200 BL6464AA53V). But further down the
    page I see that DDR2 PC2-5300 is 'Most Popular' (BL6464AA664).

    Is the PC2-5300 only for "overclocked" setups, or can it be used in a
    "standard" setup?

    When I say "standard" I don't mean nothing changed. I will probably
    select/enable a few things in the bios e.g. 'AI NOS' 'Hyper Path2' and
    'Intel PAT' to get a "bit" more performance (CS:S, Doom3 etc ...) but no
    real overclocking in the true sense (as I don't know that much about it).

    Many thanks in advance

    Matt U.K.
