Question about Computers & Internet
Rst, KNOW THE NUMBER OF REFRESH CYCLES YOUR MOTHERBOARD SUPPLIES! This is dependant on the chip set on you motherboard and the chip set initialization code in you BIOS. (Theoretically, depending on the limitations of your motherboard chip set hardware, the BIOS initialization code could be changed to use a higher refresh number allowing all available DIMMs to work together. I have never done this so, it is just a theory.)
Second, ASK THE VENDOR (OR MANUFACTURER) HOW MANY REFRESH CYCLES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE DIMMs YOU ARE CONSIDERING PURCHASING! This will tell you immediately if the memory will work in your system or not. There is no magic about it. Ask if the memory requires 1k, 2k, 4k, 8k, or 16k memory refresh cycles.
If the number of refresh cycles required by the DIMM is the same or less than the number that your motherboard supplies, the memory will work just fine. If it is more than your motherboard supplies, you will only "see" part of the memory on the DIMM. Additionally, any other DIMMs in the system may not be recognized at all. No Good!!!
