Hi hellinme, since you want to go with Kingston, can I suggest this link. http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/hyperx/modelsinfo.asp?root=
I picked the memory you wanted. DDR2 800MHz. Than picked, Asus for the board & scrolled down through motherboards till I came to the P5N-D board. Listed there will be kingston hyperX memory suggested to work the best for the motherboard.
The memory, KHX6400 D2ULK2 2G(2x1gb), is not listed.

Enjoy!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Is this a Mercury motherboard? And is that P 'eye' G3 'eye' T?
Or P L G3 L T?

What is the question?

Ya know Dual Channel memory is overrated, right?

If a motherboard is capable of using Ram Memory in a Dual Channel configuration, it has two Channels.
Motherboard with 4 Ram Memory slots has two slots in one channel, and the other two slots in another channel.

The two ram memory modules ('Stick'), MUST be alike.
Same frequency rate ('Speed')
Same type
Same ram timings
Same chip configuration
Same voltage

This is why it is best to use two ram memory modules that are alike, AND from the same ram memory manufacturer.

When ram memory is used in a dual channel configuration, the two ram memory modules team up on the task.
Kind of like Batman and Robin.

ON paper it looks good. many thought they were getting an increase of up to 30 percent, in ram memory performance.

In reality it is more like 1 to 2 percent.

Tomshardware performed MANY tests, using MANY motherboard/processor/ram memory configurations, and found this out.

So why do gamers use Dual Channel configuration?
Hey, 1 to 2 percent IS an increase, lol!
EVERY little bit helps.

Anyone know why an ASUS PTGD1-LA motherboard will only take memory in slots A1 and A1 or A1 and B1 but not anything in B with both in A filled? Brand new memory.


HI,

The board has specific requirements for memory. Here's the Memory Configurations :

  • You may install 256 MB. 512 MB and 1 GB unbuffered non-ECC DRR DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Installing DDR DIMM. Other than the recommended configurations may cause memory sizing or system boot failure.

• In dual-channel configurations, install only Identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs for each channel.

• Always install DIMMs with the same CAS Latency. For optimum compatibility , It Is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor

• Double-sided x 16 modules are not supported on this motherboard.

• Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than 4 GB system memory when you installed four 1 GB memory modules.


For dual-channel configuration you may:

install identical DIMMs in all four sockets

• install identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DlMM_B1 (blue sockets) and identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

• install same size DIMMs in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (blue sockets) and another same size pair in DIMM_A2 aid DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

Hopefully this will help understand how to install the new memory.

Thanks Mark

I am using this ASUS (asus M2N-MX nvidia mcp61p chipset


According to the manufacturer's web-site:

http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=0pKBwEIE8tqMT4j7


this motherboard has 4 x DIMM sockets,
supporting a maximum of 4 GB
of DDR2 800/667/533/ Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

and supports Dual Channel memory architecture.

So, add one 512MB DDR2 533 Mhz RAM into one of the slots,
being sure to leave *ONE* *EMPTY* slot between the two sticks,
in order to enable the high-performance "dual-channel" option.

Try your computer -- it should feel faster.

If you still think that need more RAM, buy two 512MB (or two 1024MB) DDR2 533 Mhz RAM, putting the 2 sticks into the two empty slots.

HOW TO FIND RAM CAPACITY OF INTEL D102GGC2


Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
Maximum Memory Capacity: 2048MB
* Currently Installed Memory: 512mb Number of Banks: 2
* Dual Channel Support: Yes
* CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
* Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.
Your MotherBoard Supports up to 2GB of memory.

You have 512mb, you can add 512mb to the empty slot.
, however,It's a good idea to keep them the same if you can.
You can install memory that is: DDR2 PC2-5300 (PC2-5300 is 667Mhz) you can use 1gb memory in each module for best performance and matching pairs since your motherborad supports dual channel.you can use sound card and SATA hard disk for higher disk support

Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work


I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel

ASUS P4P800E-deluxe and dual channel memory


I'm not totally sure whether this would make that big of a difference or not, but the ASUS QVL for that motherboard does not list both those particular memory modules (Kingston 1GB) as being supported for double dual channels, only for single dual, or for single channels only and there is some note in the memory specifications and setup configuration about not reading all the memory due to some bridge or another, but still optimizing all the memory.

You might want to ask ASUS about it.

ASUS P5N-E SLI AND A GF7600 ..BOOTING PROBLEMS ..CORRUPTS


Hi, trying to boot from your old drives is the problem.
The Boot sequence for your new board are different from the ol one. Your sequence to get your system going is to load the mobo drivers first, then run your XP disk again and at the second prompt select REPAIR this will run the same as a normal install but should save your existing data and settings.
One problem you may have is activating XP as Microsoft do not approve of multi installs and the new board will show as a different computer.

Motherboard Missing instruction manual for dual mode memory


Your instruction manual for the mother board should have this, however, with dual-channel motherboards, you will want to fill the same colored slots together if you have dual-channel capable memory, otherwise you'll want to fill in the off-colored slots first.  ASUS has it's manuals online, so if you've lost yours you should be able to download a pdf of it from their website.
