Question about Syntax SV266A SKA KT266A Motherboard

Choosing/upgrading DDR memory

I am currently running my pc with 256MB DDR266MHz (PC2100) and 256MB DDR300MHz (PC2400), a total of 512MB.
Want to upgrade to 1GB, because XP runs pretty slow with 512MB. Do you think it would work with DDR333MHz (PC2700) or even with a higher rate of DDR400MHZ (PC3200)? Those two are far cheaper than PC2100 (PC2400 is not available here in NZ).

    My board supports up to 2GB. I think 1GB should be enough.

    Are you saying 1GB of the same speed that means 2x512MB PC2700 DDR333MHZ or 2x512MB PC3200 DDR40MHz. Is it right? What about 1x1GB and keeping one free slot/bank?

PC Motherboard Memory upgrade


From Asus tech: Memory 3 184-pin DIMM slots for PC1600/PC2100 DDR SDRAM
Supports up to 2GB memory
No ECC supportThis is only compatible RAM so make sure your new chip is PC1600 or PC2100. If you mis the 2 it the faster RAM will run at the slower chip speed. Hope this helps.

Can you expand the memory on a Systemax Intel SIS651 System


Your motherboard is actually a Foxconn 651M03.

According to your system you have :
512MB DDR333 PC2700 Non-ECC Memory (512MB x 1)
(One stick of 512MB)

The motherboard manual says this:
System Memory
Two 184-pin DDR DIMM slots
Supports PC1600/PC2100/PC2700 memory
Supports 64Mb/128Mb/256Mb/512Mb technology up to 2GB

(This means you can have a total of up to 2 Gigabytes of RAM)

If you upgrade your RAM, you will need to make sure that you get the correct type.

If you want to keep the RAM you have, you will only be able to have 1.5 GB of RAM because you only have two slots to work with. If you want to upgrade to the full 2 GB, you will need to buy 2, 1 GB sticks.

2 x 1GB Samsung PC2100 appearing as just 1GB (2 X 512MB)


Hi Patrick,
I see you're point. I know this, you can not run "more than" 512MB in any DIMM slot. That is shown at the bottom of page 10 & the top of page 11. You can not run both types of memory at the same time, even though the chart looks like you could. The description term on page 10, states; Users only can install either 168-pin SDRAM Module or 184-pin DDR DRAM Module at one time. (You can't run both). You can run 4x512MB in all banks using184-pin DDR SDRAM. Or you can run 4x512MB in all banks of 168-pin SDRAMs. Total of 2GB.
So you can not run 1GB of memory in any bank.
