Im thinking of building new rig but i cant managed to decide which one's the best for performance on tight budget. im thinking of buying the Asus P5N-D but cant decide which high performance dual channel memory module best suited for the mobo. i dont think i can go for corsair or ocz because of no supplier have them here. the only choice would be Kingston hyperX KHX6400 D2LLK2 2G(2x1gb) and KHX6400 D2ULK2 2G(2x1gb).

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?

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.

Hi,

As far as i remember that motherboard has 4 DIMM (ram) slots supporting a maximum of 4GB DDR400/333/266 memory also it has Dual Channel Memory Architecture.

Acer official site says:-
Up to 4 GB DDR2 533/667/800 MHz SDRAM
(dual-channel support on four DIMMs)

Try these bus speeds and for dual-channel support read this article :-

Dual-channel architecture requires a dual-channel-capable motherboard and two or more DDR, DDR2 SDRAM, or DDR3 SDRAM memory modules. The memory modules are installed into matching banks, which are usually color coded on the motherboard. These separate channels allow each memory module access to the memory controller, increasing throughput bandwidth. It is not required that identical modules be used, but this is often recommended for best dual-channel operation. It is possible to use a single-sided module of 512 MB and a double-sided module of 512 MB in dual-channel configuration, but how fast and stable it is depends on the memory controller.

If the motherboard has two pairs of differently colored DIMM sockets (the colors indicate which bank they belong to, bank 0 or bank 1), then one can place a matched pair of memory modules in bank 0, but a different-capacity pair of modules in bank 1, as long as they are of the same speed. Using this scheme, a pair of 1 GB memory modules in bank 0 and a pair of matched 512 MB modules in bank 1 would be acceptable for dual-channel operation.

Modules rated at different speeds can be run in dual-channel mode, although the motherboard will then run all memory modules at the speed of the slowest module. Some motherboards, however, have compatibility issues with certain brands or models of memory when attempting to use them in dual-channel mode. For this reason, it is generally advised to use identical pairs of memory modules, which is why most memory manufacturers now sell "kits" of matched-pair DIMMs. Several motherboard manufacturers only support configurations where a "matched pair" of modules are used. A matching pair needs to match in.

Good luck

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.

I'm Confused about Dual-Channel, How to Activate/Enable it?


Check your user manual for the type of memory you can use. If your computer could use dual channel memory, I think it would come that way. Dual Channel is a pair of special compatable memory modules and only come in pairs. To buy two unpaired memory modules and hope to run them as Dual Channel is wishing too much. If they work, you're lucky, but most likely they will not work as dual channel.

If you are using those two different memory modules and they both work for a total of 3 GB then you can not do much better.

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

Insight/Decision help on new motherboard purchase.


talk about what you want with a computer repair shop
logically if the mobo is out of date , then you should be looking at the latest mobo and duel or quad core cpu
next all the os ,files and folders are on the hard drive and that can be installed in any new pc and will start and run
you have to consider this , the amount of ram has a bearing on the speed or the pc as it is used by the pc as a storage space as it moves data around as it performs the various operations
new mobo have 2 ram slots for 4gig ram sticks but you say that you only have 1gig of ram--compare 1 against 8 and see how much easier the pc will run
AS is said , talk with pc professionals ( not retailers ) and get the best advice before you flash the cash

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 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.
