Hi. I bought 2 gigs of OCZ Reaper PC 9200 memory for my rig, but when I installed it CPUZ said it was running no faster than the DDR2-800 that I was replacing. I assume that it has something to do with the timing and voltages, but my motherboard (ASUS M2N-SLI) doesn't have anything involving timings in the BIOS.
I downloaded NTune and adjusted the timings in there with no result.

My question is: Is it possible for this memory to run at full capacity with my motherboard and what would it take to get it working?

Thanks in advance.

Go HERE and look at the specs for the memory that your MOBO can take. The best I see is PC8500.
By putting the PC9200 in you are not going to get any faster then the 8500 would give you.

You could also:

Go HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
