Supported memory configurations
- Two independent memory channels with interleaved mode support
- Support for non-ECC, unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with x8 organization
- 16 GB maximum total system memory (with 2 Gb memory technology)
- Minimum total system memory: 1 GB using 1 Gb x8 modules
- Serial presence detect
- DDR3 1333 MHz and DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM DIMMs
To be fully compliant with all applicable Intel SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the serial presence detect (SPD) data structure. If your memory modules do not support SPD, you will see a notification to this effect on the screen at power up. The BIOS will attempt to configure the memory controller for normal operation.
The 32-bit operating systems are limited to a maximum of 4 GB of memory. These operating systems will report less than 4 GB because of the memory used by add-in graphics cards and other system resources.
When using a processor without Intel® Graphics Technology, memory must be installed in either or both of the DIMM 0 (blue) memory sockets for the system to boot.
|DIMM Capacity||Configuration||SDRAM Density||SDRAM Organization Front-side/Back-side||Number of SDRAM Devices|
|1 GB||SS||1 Gbit||1 GB x 8 / empty||8|
|2 GB||DS||1 Gbit||1 GB x 8 / 1 GB x 8||16|
|2 GB||SS||2 Gbit||2 GB x 8 / empty||8|
|4 GB||DS||2 Gbit||2 GB x 8 / 2 GB x 8||16|
“DS” refers to double-sided memory modules (containing two rows of SDRAM) and “SS” refers to single-sided memory modules (containing one row of SDRAM).
Computer Memory Test Labs* (CMTL) tests third-party memory for compatibility with Intel boards as requested by memory manufacturers. See the CMTL tested memory list* for this Intel® Desktop Board.
