depends on what fsb you are running and if you run your memory and fsb in sync or not...

since you are using pc2700... you'll prolly run a fsb of 166 mhz... i'd prolly start with 2-2-2-6... see if that works...

then try 2-3-3-6 , 2-3-3-7 and if those all fail then try 2.5-3-3-6 or 2.5-3-3-7

test these results with memtest86

get it here

do option c-2-3-1-2-0 spacebar
