    So I have been informed that if I only use 1 stick of RDRAM in my mobo I need sticks of c-rimms to fill in the unused slots. Does the c-rimm come with the mobo or is it something seperate I am gonna have to buy. I know the c-rimms don't cost that much.

    i'm looking around at different manufacturer's sites to see if their rambus boards come with c-rimms and i don't see any. you'll most likely have to buy them seperate.

    Since I'm gonna go RIMM 4200 I'll just buy 1 stick of c-rimm from samsung or kingston.
