I have an S2885 board with dual Opterons but can't find PC3200 memory
that works. I tried Registered/ECC PC3200 DDR 400 Kingston
KVR400X72RC3A but it did not work. Looking at the Tyan site, there is
certified memory listed but I can't find a vendor that sells any with
the exact model numbers except for Kingston 512MB (different than what
I tried). The Kingstons listed were quite expensive at $380 for a
pair. What about Micron? Can't find any with the model numbers
certified.

I specifically want PC3200 512MB modules.

Any ideas? If you have an S2885 board w/working PC3200 512MB modules,
I'd sure like to know what memory you have and where you go it.
Please respond to the board, not email.

Thanks in advance.

Can't comment on 512 MB modules, but with the S2885 I have used
1 GB ECC Registered PC3200 from both Corsair and Crucial. I
can't imagine that their 512 MB DIMMs would fail where the
1 GB DIMMs succeeded.

I have also *unsuccessfully* tried Corsair 1 GB Registered *NON-ECC*
PC3200.
