WS, nice review. i have the Asus Cusl2-C 815ep board and am kinda surprised by some of the cons on your review.  by design the 815 should max out at 768 megs of sdram (3x 256) and why iwill would reduce this to 512 is odd.   additionally, these boards use SPD memory (its Serial Presence Detect, not speed :)). The SPD device is an 8-pin serial EEPROM chip that stores information about the DIMM module’s size, speed, voltage, drive strength, and number of row and column addresses. When the BIOS reads these parameters during POST, it automatically adjusts values in the CMOS Chipset Features screen for maximum reliability and performance.
So in my system where i only used matched Mushkin modules, the SPD sets my cas222 in cmos /bios and so forth

my bad, was never really a ram person cause I could always make it do what I wanted... :D  I'll tell ed of the corrections that need to take place.  Thanks for putting my ass in the know.

I don't think the max mem. size for the i815 is 768 megs, cause I have more than a couple of friends that can only run 512 megs with thier bd133's, and they aren't using the i815.

Hrm, you see the date on that bad boy?  8-21-01 is when I shipped it off to ed... :P
