This depends on what windows you run and what kinda programs are you going to run. Like if you run lots of games you need more memory and if just doing like internet surfing or writing documents then less. 32 bit operating systems can see up to 4GB of memory and 64 bit Operating systems can see i believe up to 16GB or so. Windows vista and windows 7 need more that xp. For windows vista and 7 it is recommended to have at least 1GB for basic operations so i would recommend at least 2GB. The more the better for the feed back from the computer. More memory more programs you can run at once. Hope this helps.

Loud continuous beeping

There is nothing in the motherboard manual about a long continuous beep:
Supermicro Products Motherboards 4th Gen Core C7Z87 OCE

I would check to make sure none of the cables are backwards (ie the 16 pin is the likely culprit). Otherwise, I would attempt to boot using a single stick of RAM, check the CPU socket for bent pins, or check the warranty status and return the product for repair/replacement:

X6dh8-g2+ no video continous beep

Hello here is the homepage:

Try to boot with only one stick of ram at the time, to find the failing ram module.

This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud sound, if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem.

The mainboard is useing Up to 16GB DDR2 RAM.

Try not to buy cheap ram, they are always failing.

Good luck

8 gig of ram installed but win 8 pro 64 bit only see 4 gig, Win 7 Home Ultimate 64 bit had same result

Hello the homepage is here:

Check for one of the modules is in place in the ram socket
and blow it out for dust with compressed air.
One of the modules could also have a defect.

The mainboard supports:
Up to 8GB dual channel unbuffered
ECC/non-ECC DDR2 667/533/400 MHz

Try also to upgrade the mainboard drivers with this tool:

Good luck

Supermicro x6da8 won't post. Can't get into BIOS either.

disconnect all power connections to the board and take the battery out for a few minutes and then put it all back and see if you can acess the bios. If you still cant, try a bios flash and if that brings you no joy, board is done
