800MHz Dual Channel RAM on Intel D945GNT

Hi,
I got an OCZ Platinum Revision-2 - 800MHz Dual Channel (i.e 1GB * 2) RAM modules and I have an "Intel D945GNT MotherBoard" running with 1GB RAM with a DRAM frequency of 266.7.
Intel's website mentions that only 667MHz is supported max... :-(
So, can I use the new OCZ RAM modules on my motherboard along with the old RAM module or atleast separately without the Old RAM???.. Any problems I may be facing because of doing that??

Thank you
Sam

    Sam

I want to upgrade my computer specs... hope you can help me.. CPU: intel core2 duo E4600 2.4Ghz/800Mhz/2mb L2 cache/65MOnm MOBO: elite 945GCT -M2/1333 (v1.0), 1945GC/C2D/1333MHZ/DDR2 667/PCI-E memory:...


If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".

So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.

Are OCZ PC3 1333 ddr3 1.65v memory compatible with


Intel's web site for the board has the following:

The Desktop Board supports the following memory:

  • Four 240-pin Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts arranged in two channels
  • 1333/1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM interface
  • Support for single- and dual-channel memory interleaving
  • Unbuffered, non-registered single- or double-sided DIMMs with a voltage rating of less than 1.6 V. Using a DIMM with a voltage rating higher than 1.6 V may damage the processor.
  • Non-ECC DDR3 memory
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory only
  • Up to 16 GB maximum total system memory
You need to contact TigerDirect and have them change out the memory for sticks that meet the above specs.

Memory confusion different readings


It sounds like something isnt working right, what operating system are you using, Vista? I would take out the original 512 and see what it says after, often ram isnt compatible if it is too different in size and speeds. Also, if your motherboard supports dual channel ram and you have the extra 512 chip it wont run in dual channel mode, you would run better with just the 2 chips then the added 512 chip.
