The board has two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:
- 1.5V DDR3 SDRAM SO-DIMMs with gold-plated contacts.
- Support for 1.35V low voltage DDR3 (new JEDEC specification)
- Two independent memory channels with interleaved mode support
- Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided SO-DIMMs
- 16 GB maximum total system memory (with 4 Gb memory technology)
- Minimum recommended total system memory: 1024 MB
- Non-ECC SO-DIMMs
- Serial presence detect
- XMP profile support for voltage detection
- DDR3 1333 MHz and DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM SO-DIMMs
To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with SO-DIMMs that support the serial presence detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance. If non-SPD memory is installed, the BIOS will attempt to correctly configure the memory settings, but performance and reliability may be impacted or the SO-DIMMs may not function under the determined frequency.
1.5V is the recommended and default setting for DDR3 memory voltage. The other memory voltage settings in the BIOS Setup program are provided for performance tuning purposes only. Altering the memory voltage may (i) reduce system stability and the useful life of the system, memory, and processor; (ii) cause the processor and other system components to fail; (iii) cause reductions in system performance; (iv) cause additional heat or other damage; and (v) affect system data integrity.
Intel has not tested and does not warranty the operation of the processor beyond its specifications. For information on the processor warranty, refer to Processor Warranty Information.
