SOURCE: In the Manual the Gigabyte GAZ68XUD3HB3 Motherboard says to put RAM in slots DDR3 1 and 2 or DDR3 3 and 4 if you use 2 sticks. Several posts on- line say this is incorrect, and to use DDR3 slots 2 an

Slots 1 and 2 or 3 and 4 are correct. Be sure you are using the correct kind of RAM for your computer and that both sticks are the same size and type.

Testimonial: "The type of RAM i used was not on the QVL list. I will purchase some from that list. It is Corsair RAM that has the same specs as RAM that was tested, but a different serial number, as well as not having XMP."

I have a m4a78lt-m motherboard will kingston ddr3 1600 4gb khx1600c9d3b1k2/4gx memory work with 32bit os I am putting a system togather have purchased the mother board and memory now i am questing if it...

This motherboard uses DDR3-SDRAM, ECC and non-ECC, unbuffered, PC3-10600(1333mhz) or PC3-8500(1066mhz), dual channel architecture (two sticks at a time), and a max memory of 8Gs.
This are the specs for your ram: 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC
(Kit of 2) Intel XMP HyperX = DDR3-1600
Default = DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-27
CL9-9-9 1.65V

In other words, Yes! This should work just fine. The ram will just run at its default speed of 1333mhz.

    Can i upgrade my ram to ddr3 if so what would you recomend .cheers

    Thank you for the clarification sir.
    NO, the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center uses the Gigabyte GA-8ISXT-FS motherboard, and it only supports DDR Sdram.

    This is a PDF Motherboard Manual for the GA-8ISXT-FS mobo, from Fujitsu Support,

    This is the support page for the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center,
    from Fujitsu Support,

    Uses either DDR Sdram at 333MegaHertz, or 400MHz.
    (PC2700 and PC3200 respectively)

    DDR Sdram has 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
    DDR2 Sdram has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
    DDR3 Sdram has the same amount of contact pins as DDR2.

    The voltage and signal contact pins are in a different place, from DDR2 to DDR3.
    This is why the locating notch on the bottom of the ram stick, is in a different place, comparing DDR2 to DDR3.

    So you can see, DDR3 not fit in a DDR2 slot, because the locating lug in the bottom of the ram slot, and the locating notch in the bottom of the ram stick. Keeps people from trying to put DDR3 in a DDR2 slot, and vice-versa.

    You can also see why a 240 pin ram stick, will not fit in a 184 pin ram slot.

    Bumping up from DDR to DDR2 does make a difference in my book. (Requires using a motherboard that supports DDR2 however, so you would need a different motherboard)

    Going from DDR2 to DDR3? Not so much IMHO. The frequency rate is higher, but there is a trade off with slower ram timings.

    Sorry if I have been too 'Windy', but I thought I would give you more information, than just,
    'No, won't work', or No won't work because your motherboard uses DDR Sdram'.
