Soltek SL-86SPE-L and 512MB 400MHz memory cards

Hi All,

I have Soltek SL-86SPE-L maninboard on my PC - I wanted to add 2 "Kingston 512MB 400 MHz PC3200 CL3 184 - Pin DIMM". Windows goes a few steps to start, but fails lastly.

Is there compatibility? or what?

Thanks for comments any, Amir.

I am running Kingston PC3200 without any issues but it will depend on the FSB speed of your CPU for the memory to operate at full speed. What CPU are you running.

If I could find your manual, I would bet that your memory should be CL2 or a max of CL2.5 which is the core voltage of the memory.
A lot of places do not show the CAS or CL voltage, rather they make you look for it. Thats just wrong.

I am trying to add (2) KVR400/1GR to my ASUS K8V-X motherboard. They register fine but run at 169 hz not 200 hz. WHy is that? Can I force to run at 400?

Kingston KVR400 MHz memory will not run correctly on your Asus MB.
The bus speed of the MB can't handle over clocking memory to 400MHz Just because the CPU can handle 533/400MHz doesn't mean the memory can. You should be able to over clock the PC2100 memory up a bit to maybe 276MHz. Personnaly, I wouldn't even try it. Overclocking the CPU is much safer. Even if your board could run 400MHz memory, I doupt you'd even notice the higher data transfer rate.
The Asus P4V533-MX only supports, 2 x 184-pin DDR PC2100 / 266MHz or PC1600 / 200MHz non-ECC memory. Thats why your memory was lowered by the bios to 169MHz.
You would have to raise the voltage and speed on the memory. Odds are you'd fry the memory if you do so.

Hope you find this helpful.

OptiPlex GX270 mini tower

Remove the 256mb memory and insert the 512mb memory in slot1 and see whether it works. Please note that the memory needs to be in pairs.

I think the GX260 is mini tower has two different moles
1) PC3200 compatible with memory - 184 Pin DDR3200 400MHz

2) PC2700 compatible with memory -184 Pin DDR2700 333MHz

Please enter the service tag on and find the manual and the right memory for your PC

All the best!

Change 400mhz to 266mhz

Hi, Normally yes. It is the motherboard that will limit the memory speed. Shifting down from 400 to 266 should not be a problem. However, I have run across instances where the memory is cut in half (dunno why), but very rare. Good luck and kind regards.
