Question about MSI K8MM-ILSR Motherboard

Try to install 2gb PC2700/DDR333 memory on MS-6741 motherboard

Hi,

I try to install 2 X 1GB PC2700 184 PIN 333 MHZ DDR RAM on a K8MM-ILSR (MS-6741) motherboard http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K8MM-ILSR. With the new memory the computer is working but it became unstable (frozen screen, windows errors..) Do I have to change the bios setup? My old ddr RAM was 2 X 512MB PC3200 184 PIN 400 MHZ. I have flash the AMI BIOS to version 3.7.

Thank you.

Luc

    Hi jell587 and djmadrik,

    Thank you for your quick answers. The part number of the memory stick is 1GBUFURTULAA. I also verify and the memory is set to auto in the bios, so the problem is still the same.

    Thanks again

    Luc

    But I don't know what I have to write on the Bios to make it working fine.

    I already try to put PC3200 400 MHZ but the MOBO don't see it at all as it is written on the user guide (
    The mainboard provides two slots for 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM (Double In-Line
    Memory Module) modules and supports up to 2GB memory size. You can install
    PC2700/DDR333 & PC2100/DDR266 modules on the DDR DIMM slots (DDR 1~2).)





  • lucbourdages Feb 27, 2009

    OK Thank you,

    Now I know what to change on the Bios but i don't find the latency (I have AMI Bios 3.31a). I know that it's supposed to be under andvanced chipset features menu but I found notting to set the cas latency.

    Hey Luc,

    According to Crucial.com these are the memory sticks that are compatible with your unit. Can you post the exact part number of the 1gb memory you have installed so that we can cross reference it?

    Thanks!

Hiya Luc


the problem is with your memory, i have read your post and b4 you was using pc3200 and now using pc2700 have you made sure that the memory is set to auto in the bios as it sounds like it is still set to ddr 400 and not ddr 333

    hiya luc



    i notice that you only have 2 dimm slots on your mobo, i know that some boards have issue's with using max memory installed as this causes lock ups and random reboots this a limitation on the chipset

Hey Luc,

I got a chance to check on that memory part number. Most of the sources that I ran across were outside of the USA (and there were very few of them). Was this memory purchased from an online vendor or over the counter at a brick and mortar store?

Here's the thing - I can't find any listings for this memory module on ebay which is odd because generally you can find anything by punching its part number into ebay and a lot of the time you get more detailed specs on the part thru ebay than you would thru a regular web search. I did determine that the specs you posted were pretty much right but I couldn't get any more advanced specs than what you provided.

You may want to source a diffrent module(s) for your unit using the specs I posted a link to before and going with the PC3200 mods. Just make sure you match the CL and voltage detailed for your machine.

I wish there was a better answer for you but if I can't verify the validity of the memory you're trying to use than I have to recommend going with a different module altogether.

Post back here with your progress on this, I'll be curious to see how it turns out.

    In the PC2700 style your machine calls for CL2.5:

    1GB: DDR PC2700 • CL=2.5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR333 • 2.5V • 128Meg x 64

    If using PC3200:

    1GB: DDR PC3200 • CL=3 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR400 • 2.6V • 128Meg x 64

    Note the difference in voltage and latency (CL). The memory you purchased on ebay has a latency of 3 (although it has the correct voltage) when the PC2700 recommended for your mobo is 2.5.


    If any other tech monitoring this thread wants to comment on this please do.

Hey Richard, your board has 2 x 184 DIMM slots, that are both usable, with a maximum capacity of 2GB, supported RAM types are 333MHz, and 266MHz..

Hope this is what you are looking for,

Hi,

The 333/400 is the speed of the RAM in MHz 333 and 400 MHz. That corresponds with PC2700 and PC3200 that is in your specification.
250 GB hdd will work. Make sure that it is IDE and make sure that you connect the jumpers for master/slave the correct way.
As for the graphic card. If you have this one 'VGA SPARKLE 7300GT 512MB DDR2 128BIT PCI-X' than it will not work because it is a PCI-X card not an AGP card. You will need an older card for this motherboard.

Ddr ram sdr ram i am same time input that tw0 thats not show two ram capacities just show one ram'' asus p4s533 model please help me


Hi safran0785,
The Asus motherboard, P4S533-MX can run two different types of memory.
(Just not at the same time & in different slots).
You can use 2, 184-pin memory, PC2700/PC2100 MHz or PC1600 up to 2GB. (1GB DIMMs) inserted in the two memory slots closest to the CPU.
Or you can run SDR memory, 168-pin PC133 or PC100MHz DIMMs up to 1GB of memory in the last two slots farthest from the CPU.
You can not run both types of memory at the same time.

The 184-pin DDR PC2700MHz memory is much faster then SDR memory.
The maximum amount of system memory supported is 2GB.

Need more information/questions, just post here.
Good luck safran0785!
Mike

Unable to get 3GB of memory to work on the motherboard


Hi enj1956, according to the manual the MB supports only,
"one" DIMM of DDR400MHz.
See page 2-7 in your manual.
You can use 3, PC2700/DDR333 / 3, PC2100/DDR266 or
3, PC1600/DDR200 to reach the 3GB.
All DIMMs must be the same memory type & speed.

Any 184-pin ddr ram should work on this. You can actually use pc3200 (ddr 400) ram as well. Pc2700 ram is ddr333, and a higher speed ddr ram like pc3200 will work just as well if not better than pc2700, it will simply go down to the speed that the processor requests the ram run at. It's all backwards compatible, faster ram can run slower if the computer needs it to run at the slower speed. Depending on the price you can find as long as you get 184 pin ddr ram either pc2700 or pc3200 with work fine with your motherboard. Peter
