Im not sure if the DS4 will let you run the RAM on a divider unless its 1:1, you couldnt on the DS3

certainly either the DS3 or DS4 does as ive used the board on a divider as it was one of the systems I was on about above. Cant remember which he got now tho, I do remember having some timing problems that a bios update fixed

S3/DS3/DS4/DQ6 don't have 'dividers' that let you run RAM slower than the CPU. They multiply the RAM speed up above the CPU speed only. 2:1 is the slowest you can get so a 400FSB on the CPU requires RAM that will run 800MHz (PC6400) speeds or better.
