Memory swap asus p4s800d-x motherboard with 512 sdram. 2 sticks want to upgrade to 1 gb sdram p/n kvr400x64c3ak2. asus is listed as supporting kingston, which is the p/n I gave. But I was wondering if the mother board will support un-buffered sdram. The 2 sticks of 1gb is unbuffered.

and if you click on the CPU Support List you see that it does not support Dual core processor :(

Not recognizing memory.

The Asus P4S800-X MB can use Dual channel DDR memory and single channel memory. The dual channel memory which comes in matching packs. (Normally 2 DIMMS per pack) is the faster memory.
In other words if you are installing, 4- 512MB DIMMS of PC3200 all memory should be matched,
or you're MB may not see all connected DIMM'S.

See page vii in you're manual. If you're running windows XP, Home or Pro edition the bios will show up to 4GB of memory installed but windows XP 32bit will only show 3GB of memory. As mentioned above all 4 of you're 512MB of memory should be dual channel and run at the same speed. You can run both single channel and dual channel but you must follow Table 1 in you're manual. (1-9).
Example; PC3200 400MHz.
Or 4-512MB PC2700 333MHz. See page 1-9 for memory configurations and the QVL list supported.
Check out Asus FAQ's;

This should help you configure the memory.
Good luck!

Memory upgarade

Yes, it will work. Remember that all memory will operate at the speed of the slowest memory though so unless you're completely replacing the memory it won't increase the speed of the memory.

Memory upgrade, download upgrade to run 400

According to the specs of this motherboard, it only supports 333, 266 and 200 MHz DDR SDRAM. It does not support 400 MHz DDR SDRAM.
This motherboard has only 2 memory slots, each can accommodate a 1 GB memory module. Higher capacity memory modules are not supported by this motherboard.
No BIOS upgrade is available to provide support for 400 MHz DDR SDRAM memory modules.

Upgrading RAM

Yes that should not be a problem as DDR is backward compatible with the slower speeds so the faster RAM, will just slow down to match. These are the only conditions listed so as long as the stick you have doesn't fall under this criteria you should be good.

he D845GLVA board provide the following memory features:
  • 2.5 V (only) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered single-sided or double-sided DIMMs
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • DDR266/200 MHz SDRAM DIMMs only
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
Do not use ECC DIMMs with this board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported.
  • Double-sided x16 DIMMs are not supported.
  • If a full-length PCI add-in card is installed in PCI bus connector 1 (the PCI bus connector closest to the processor), remove the add-in card before installing or upgrading memory to avoid interference with the memory retention mechanism.
  • This board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated (currently validated up to 1.0 GB) on this board.

To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.

Enjoy the increase in RAM,

That memory you have listed should work with your board. Matched memory should be bought inpairs. Check your manual at pg. 1-19. There is the QVL list of teaded memory
