Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard

Does the motherboard support RAM Modules at 667MHz?

I want to upgrade my RAM from 1GB to 2GB. Problem is, the available RAM Modules here now are just the 667MHz types and the motherboard is said to only support 400MHz types. Is it safe to use the 667MHz Modules rather than the 400MHz Modules?

Yes you should be able to use 667MHz modules with your motherboard.

They will function at 400MHz.

Please be aware that some memory modules may be incompatible with some motherboards.
Although this happens rarely, only way to find out is to test.
Ask if you can return the modules if this happens.

I upgraded Memory to 4GB with Two 2GB SD Ram Modules but System shows Only One 2GB module and does not show/recognize second module. BIOS Setting Shows Second Slot/RAM Module Not Activated.


is the module in properly?,is anything broken?? switch them around and see if the module is good or not,also,just because the motherboard supports 2 modules,if intel only recognizes 2gb then that is all,whether you have 2 1gb modules or 2 2gb modules,upgrade your intel chip and upgrade your bios

ASUS k8v mx RAM upgrade issue


It's late and I'm too tired to think at the moment, but you could download and run Everest with both modules in and see if it finds a problem? http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/Everest-Home-Edition.shtml

Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=436&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=24&LanID=0

Your mainboard supports:

2 DDR DIMMs
Supports DDR266 / DDR200
Max. 2GB

You can easy add 2, 1gb modules.

I recommend 2 gb ram.

Good luck

Will the Intel D945GNT motherboard run Windows 64 bit OS, and will I need to change the RAM. At present I have Two Transcend 512 MB DDR2 Mhz modules on it. Please advise. Thanks.


Trying to run W7 64 bit with only 1gb of ram will make the system really slow. I suggest you purchase 4gb of PC5300 (667mhz) of ram which will cost about £30. Your system will then fly compared to what it is doing now.

I have an asus m2n mx (windsor) motherboard and an amd athlon x2 3600+ processor . . . i have a pair of 667mhz 512MB (total 1GB) ram and a pair of 800mhz 1GB (total 2GB). . grand total(3 GB) . . My problem...


The manual for your motherboard states:

For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:

• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR

• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow

sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and

DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For

optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.

I have intel dg41rq motherboard with 2 gb kingston 667 mhz in one slot. can i put another 2 gb ram in other slot. if yes then should it have the same specification?


Intel DG41RQ Motherboard has two DDR2 (DIMM) sockets.
It Support DDR2 800 or DDR2 667 MHz DIMMs. Since you already have a 667 MHz RAM, it is recommended that you add another RAM of the same specification (DIMM DDR2 667 MHz)
However, if you add 800 MHz DIMM with 667 MHz, both would perform at 667 MHz. RAMs of different bus speed and latency usually work together but the performance is compromised.
It is always better to have RAM in pairs of same specification.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Does ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 Motherboard supports DDR2 800mhz ram.?i'am havin 1gb ddr2 667mhz ram and i want to add 2gb 800mhz ram to it


Hello Tarun - No it doesn't. It would run OK but you would not gain any performance as the ram will only run at the same 667 MHz.

The limitation of RAM speed is dictated by the specs of the Intel 945 Chipset the motherboard is based on. But certainly add more ram, especially if your running Windows Vista or Windows 7 which both need at least two GB of RAM to perform well.

Happy upgrading and thanks for using Fix Ya.
