Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
I recently successfully installed 2 x 1GB [240 pin 128Mx64] DDR2 PC2-8500, 1066 MHz unbuffered, Crucial supplied memory units. I used the Crucial dianostic tool to select the 2x1GB units which were recommended by Crucial as compatible with my PC's exisiting memory units. The mother board is Asus M2N-TE and has four memory slots, two yellow, two black. There are two original [not Crucial supplied] 500 MB memory units installed [240 pin 128x64] DDR2 PC-5300, 667 MHz unbuffered. All units have been installed as pairs. Please advise if the total memory will run at 667 MHz, i.e. the 1 GB units may not operate at the optimum 1066 MHz of the new units. If the total 3GB memory can only run at 667 MHz would it be best to remove the 500 GB and use the 2GB on its own to get the faster memory speed? I do not use the PC for games but would welcome faster memory for downloads. Also, how do I modify the BIOS settings / system board settings to optimise the relationship between the 2GB faster memory units and the BUS speed?
All memory will operate at the slowest speed chip unfortunately. the only way to get the higher speed is to have all chips capeable of that particular speed.
