I am using D102GGC2 Desktop board with Intel Pentium D Processor 2.8GHz and using 512MB DDR2 PC-533 RAM. Nw I want to upgrade to 2GB and decided to purchase 2 * 1GB DDR2 PC-667 RAM. Will it be compati


Hello here is the homepage:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Third-Party+Chipset+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D102GGC2

You can only add 1gb per slot Because the mb does not supports a bigger module.
This ram type does come as 1 gb module.
The 667 mhz and 800 mhz is the Mhz speed for the ram module.
Your mainboard supports this but it will only run the current front side bus speed as the mainboard supports.
This means that the new ram will only run 533/400 mhz as the mb supports.

Hope this was helpfull

I have a 512 DDR2 (533 FSB) RAM in one of my slot in Intel D102GGC2 Mother board,can i put a 2 GB DDR2 ram in another slot.If yes then What FSB will match and what is the maximum capacity of ram per slot?


This motherboard will support maximum 2 GB of total system memory. so configuration is should be 1GB + 1GB or one 2GB in one slot. If you attempt to install 2GB + 512MB, this is unsupported. but you can try if might the system can read it or not. there is no serious problem for installing memory exceed than maximum system memory...
Memory supported is DDR2 533 Mhz and DDR2 400 MHz...(sometimes on the market DDR2 533 will described as module name PC2-4200 and DDR2 400 as PC2 3200)

Hello Sir, I had 512 MB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). Now I have bought 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). My system has 2 slots. In one slot, I have 512 MB RAM and in another slot, I installed 1 GB RAM that I have...


The Intel D102GGC2 uses a Dual Channel Memory Architecture meaning that both slots need to be running at the same speeds. I would suggest getting another 667 MHz RAM card and installing it along side your current one, just as I reminder this motherboard only supports 2GB RAM Max so don't get one that is above 1GB.

I have a 512 mb 667mhz sdram on D102Ggc2 board.now i decided to up grade memory. Can i upgrade system memory without lose this 512 mb.


Hi,
Yes you can. but make sure that you buy the exact same type of RAM stick that you have and put it in the other RAM slot so the Dual Channel feature will be active (dual channel makes data transmission/processing faster) and making your systems memory 1GB. However, your motherboard can utilize or handle up to 2GB or RAM so you can put also a 1GB RAM stick which will make your systems memory a total of 1.5GB (that will be the case if you really dont want to lose the 512MB that you currently have,
Hope this helps.

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

Memory channel mode


Hi shinde32, you should know that dual channel memory should be bought as a pair. Your board has two DIMM slots as you mentioned. The board can handle up to 2GB max memory, as you have mentioned. What you do not seem to know is it is required to use the same amount of memory is each slot. See the bottom of page 55 in your manual. (Do you need the manual)? Download at this link;
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d102ggc2/sb/d4798502_en.pdf
There is not a bios setting where you can enable or disable memory channels. The bios configures the memory automatically. Intel has a list of memory tested & passed for the D102GGC2 Mb. You can see that list at this next link.
http://www.intel.com/technology/memory/ddr/valid/DDR2_sodimm_results.htm
Bottom line, both DIMM slots should have two 512MB DIMMS or two 1GB DIMM's. (Like this memory);

https://www.thefind.com/computers/info-spd-dual-channel-kit-memory
This is what your search would look like,
"1GB x 2 DDR2 dual channel 533MHz SPD memory".
The Certified "SPD" is important for Intel MB's.

Good luck shinde32!

RAM NOT DETECTING


I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.
