Intel® Desktop Board D5400XS
System memory

System memory features

The board has four FB-DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:

  • 1.5 V with option to raise voltage to support higher performance DDR2 SDRAM FBDIMMs.
  • Fully buffered, single-sided or double-sided FBDIMMs with the following restriction: Double-sided FBDIMMs with x16 organization are not supported.
  • 16 GB maximum total system memory.
  • Minimum total system memory: 512 MB.
  • Serial Presence Detect.
  • DDR2 800, DDR2 667, and DDR2 533 MHz SDRAM DIMMs.
Note To be fully compliant with all applicable Intel SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with FBDIMMs 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.

A DIMM cooling fan is recommended for use on Intel® Desktop Board D5400XS. A DIMM cooling fan is not included and must be purchased separately.

Memory population rules:

Refer to the Technical Product Specification to see which DIMM corresponds to which Branch and Channels listed below:

Memory socket location Assignment
DIMM A Memory Branch 0 Channel 0
DIMM B Memory Branch 0 Channel 1
DIMM C Memory Branch 1 Channel 0
DIMM D Memory Branch 1 Channel 1
  • DIMM population rules are governed by the chipset. The MCH provides four channels of Fully Buffered DIMM (FBD) memory in 2 branches. Channels within a branch share the device IDs and control registers.
  • Within a Branch, both Channels must have identical DIMMs (speed, size, timings) or only the first Channel will be seen.
  • 3 DIMM population is not supported. Only the DIMM(s) in Branch 1 will be seen.
  • Using all identical DIMMs is strongly preferred.

Important memory and system bus speed considerations
This board supports two system bus speeds and three memory speeds. It is important to understand that not all system memory speeds are supported at all system bus speeds. In the table below, is a list of available system bus speeds and memory speeds capable.

Processor bus speed Installed memory speed Reported memory speed
1600 MHz 800 MHz 800 MHz
1600 MHz 667 MHz 640 MHz
1333 MHz 800 MHz 667 MHz
1333 MHz 667 MHz 667 MHz
1333 MHz 533 MHz 533 MHz

Supported DIMM configurations

DIMM capacity Configuration (Note 1) SDRAM density SDRAM organization front-side/back-side Number of SDRAM devices (Note 2)
512 MB SS 512 Mbit 64 M x 8 / Empty 8 [9]
512 MB SS 1 Gbit 64 M x 16 / Empty 4 [5]
1 GB DS 512 Mbit 64 M x 8 / 64 M x 8 16 [18]
1 GB SS 1 Gbit 128 M x 8 / Empty 8 [9]
2 GB DS 1 Gbit 128 M x 8 / 128 M x 8 16 [18]
4 GB DS 1 Gbit 256 M x 4 36 [40]
4 GB SS 2 Gbit 512 M x 4 16 [18]

  1. In the second column, “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).
  2. In the fifth column, the number in brackets specifies the number of SDRAM devices on an ECC DIMM.

Tested memory

3rd Party Tested Memory*
3rd party tested memory occurs as requested by the memory vendors and is tested at an independent memory house that is not a part of Intel - Computer Memory Test Labs (CMTL).

Vendor self tested memory
Intel supplies the memory vendors that participate in this program with a common memory test plan to use as a basic checkout of the memory stability. Memory listed here was either tested by the memory vendor or by Intel using this test plan. These part numbers may not be readily available throughout the product life cycle.

The table below lists parts which passed testing conducted using Intel's Self Test program for Intel® Desktop Board D5400XS.
