To extend RAM memory

Hi i am rahul
currently i have intel 845 GE motherboard with 128 SDRAM But i want to extend my memory size. I want to know that can i replace my SDRAM with an DDR2 RAM of size 152Mb. Because of high price and slow speed of SDRAM I found my computer little lazy.

Please give me your advise asoon as possible that my motherboard is compatible with DDR2 or DDR1 type of RAM or NOT.

Re: to extend RAM memory

According to intel manual your motherboard supports 2 DDR Memory slots

Support for higher-bandwidth DDR333 SDRAM memory provides
exceptional performance across the full range of multimedia and
3D-intensive applications while offering the cost benefits and
reliability of DDR266 SDRAM architecture.

2.4ghz, 128ram, P4, 40GB HD.need to upgrade the system.

According to intel:

1.6 System Memory
The Desktop Boards provide the following memory features:
• Two DIMM sockets supporting one of the following10:
 2.5 V (only) 184-pin 200/266 MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM DIMMs with goldplated
contacts, or
 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated
• Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
• Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
• Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
• Suspend to RAM

And yes, you can increase the hard disk.

RAM cuantity

The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.

I have a P3 at 500MHz and was wondering with this Motherboard,

The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.

The motherboard supports the following memory features:
  • 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
  • Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
  • 3.3 V memory only
  • Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:

DIMM Size Non-ECC Configuration ECC Configuration 16 MB 2M x 64 2M x 72 32 MB 4M x 64 4M x 72 64 MB 8M x 64 8M x 72 128 MB 16M x 64 16M x 72 256MB 32M x 64 32M x 72

Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary between sockets.

Note: Intel® Pentium® II processors with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.

All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial Presence Detect Specification.

Note: It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2 motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.

So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.

Ram support for intel 845 motherboard

Ok. So you've defined the Intel 845 chipset on your motherboard.

But is it the 845 or 845G chipset?

Click HERE for the specifications of the Intel 845 chipset.

Click HERE for the specifications of the Intel 845G chipset.

Peepnklown is only HALF right.

The Intel 845 chipset does NOT support PC133 memory.

The Intel 845G chipset DOES support both DDR and PC133 memory.

The difference?

The 845 has a single memory controller for DDR memory.

The 845G has two memory controllers. One for DDR and one for PC133.

Although you're going to need DDR memory as it is FASTER and less expensive than the older PC133 memory. (Believe it or not.)

I do NOT recommend using Corsair's ValuSelect memory on this chipset. I have two boards with the 845G chipset and that type of memory does not allow the board to boot.

These boards typically come with DDR266 (PC2100) modules installed.

I would go ahead and buy DDR333 (PC2700) memory for it. The board you have may not utilize the full speed of that memory, but will use tighter memory timings if the RAM is clocked down by the board. This will result in better efficiency of memory use by the processor.

Think of it as giving the motherboard "breathing room".

I could recommend PNY memory for the most basic compatability. (Not that they manufacture their own RAM modules...) Or perhaps Nanya, Infineon or Microtek.

Look for memory compatability lists for your particular motherboard module online. You could also use PNY's memory configurator on their website.

Click HERE for PNY's memory configurator.

Good luck.

Intel ASUS P4 845 GL Motherboard

Hi, For an ASUS P4BGL-VM Intel 845GL Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (OEM), the Asus site specifies max of 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC DDR or SDRAM memory but not "and". Personally, I find it more practical to install 2 X 1Gb rather than a single 2Gb. Hope this gives you some idea. Kind regards.
