• Chipset:
Intel 875P/ICH5R

• Memory:
Dual Channel 128bit
4 x 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM

Dual Channel Requirements

  • Same density (128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, etc.) in each channel
  • Same DRAM technology (128M-bit, 256M-bit, or 512M-bit) in each channel
  • Same DRAM bus width (x8 or x16) in each channel
  • Both channels are either single-sided or dual-sided
  • Populate the memory slots symmetrically

    Optimal performance is attained by using dual channel DDR400 matched DIMM modules. When not using DDR400, symmetrical DIMM population and matched double-sided DIMMs will guarantee better performance
