I didn’t know that, how can I know wether a motherboard supports newer, high-density sticks or not? Wed Mar 21, 7: Put into your system. Because the OS doesn’t use the cached ram first, you will get a tremendous performance penalty.

I have more itel MB memory and the board seems to recognize all of it, but Windows acts strangely, telling me that I don’t have enough ram or just doesn’t start some applications.

Thanks for the links though, learning new things can never hurt. It is most likely slot 1 but might be new enough to be s Is there a better method to test the ram?

Dear Comcast, I won’t use your email service Tue Mar 27, 8: If you plan on buying MB PC modules, cheap modules shouldn’t be a big problem – especially if you don’t overclock your board, you actually underclock your ram, which might help i440bz run those modules stable.

Ironically, the BX offered better performance than several of its successors. Since the ram interface calls for 64 bit data width, 8 chips intle needed to form one ram bank.

These modules consist of 2 banks, each bank has 4 chips. So overclocking the FSB to Mhz is not an option then?

I’ve fhipset bought some MB “high density” module with 16 chips on it and only half of the ram gets recognized. What is the maximum amount of ram my board supports? ZX is limited to 2 memory banks while BX is 3 memory banks i find the winki entry to be incorrect since i have a Dell power edge pentium 3 with about 2 dozen memory banks but winki says only 4 banks max could be an independent memory controller though it has 4 PCI slots xhipset 3 ISA which makes the computer super valuable.

Sorry, I have no idea.

Expect more of the type 3 and probably 4 to show up in the future for sale. Unofficially Achieved Bus Speeds. Please consider upgrading to the latest version of your browser by clicking one of the following links.


That means prices are higher and availability is lower as well as equipment being older.

Chipset Guide

If you want to use more than three double-sided modules, it is probably a good idea to use registered memory, because the “capacitive load” on the memory bus can get quite high, and you might experience stability problems. The success of the BX chipset has caused various software emulation and virtualization packages to use it as part of their virtual system. Intel lists another type in their newer chipsets datasheets: Officially Supported Bus Speeds.

The processor you have it a copermine processor suggesting you can put any MHz coppermine processor in it with little risk. Following cards are known to work well: These inel use ram chips organized as 32Mx4 see question ” What module sizes are supported on my bx-based board?

Can a 133Mhz FSB PIII be used on an i440BX motherboard?

Depends what the customer is doing whether it makes a detestable difference. But usually the term double-sided refers to the logical organization of the ram chips synonym as banksnot the physical placement of the chips.
