    :) just installed a Asus AV8 deluxe motherboard everything is ok except for one thing,every time i try and install my second piece of 512 mb memory i get the message telling me that the computer has been overclocked,everything else with this board is excellent and not giving problems as the memory is. :)

    Are you using a matched pair of ram sticks? If not then you need to not use the dual channel slots ..

    Make sure that you have both Mem sticks in the "blue" slots. and when ya reboot go into the BIOS and check the settings.

    And if you are running as to the specs in yer sig, I have the same board with an AMD 64 3000+ and a matched set of 1 GIG Corsair DDR400 PC3200 (2x 512).

    And make sure that the Mem is seated correctly. Take them both out (after shutting down and turning everything off :p) and reinstall them, if ya want switch them around in the slots. But make sure you use the "blue" slots.
