Tested Memory


System memory features
The Intel® Desktop Board D845EBT has two DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:
  • 2.5 V (only) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered, unregistered single-sided or double-sided DIMMs
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB (see second note below)
  • Minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • 200/266 MHz DDR SDRAM DIMMs only
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
  • Suspend to RAM
  • Non-ECC and ECC DIMMs
  • Remove the AGP video card before installing or upgrading memory to avoid interference with the memory retention mechanism.
  • The Intel Desktop Board D845EBT has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated on this desktop board. Please refer to the latest lists of tested memory.
  • To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the Intel Desktop Board D845EBT should be populated with 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 DIMMs may not function under the determined frequency.
  • For ECC functionality, all installed DIMMs must be ECC.
The following table lists the supported DIMM configurations.

DIMM Capacity Configuration DDR SDRAM Density DDR SDRAM Organization Front-side/Back-side Number of DDR SDRAM Devices
64 MB DS 64 Mbit 4 M x 16/4 M x 16 8
64 MB SS 64 Mbit 8 M x 8/empty 8
64 MB SS 128 Mbit 8 M x 16/empty 4
128 MB DS 64 Mbit 8 M x 8/8 M x 8 16
128 MB DS 128 Mbit 8 M x 16/8 M x 16 8
128 MB SS 128 Mbit 16 M x 8/empty 8
128 MB SS 256 Mbit 16 M x 16/empty 4
256 MB DS 128 Mbit 16 M x 8/16 M x 8 16
256 MB DS 256 Mbit 16 M x 16/16 M x 16 8
256 MB SS 256 Mbit 32 M x 8/empty 8
512 MB DS 256 Mbit 32 M x 8/32 M x 8 16

Note: In the second column, "DS" refers to double-sided memory modules (containing two rows of DDR SDRAM) and "SS" refers to single-sided memory modules (containing one row of DDR SDRAM).
