Intel® Desktop Board DG33TL
System memory

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

  • 1.8V (only) DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered, single-sided, or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction: Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported.
  • 8 GB maximum total system memory using DDR2 667 or DDR2 800 DIMMs
  • Minimum total system memory: 512 MB
  • Non-ECC DIMMs
  • Serial Presence Detect
  • DDR2 800 or DDR2 667 MHz SDRAM DIMMs
  • DDR2 667 SIMMs with SPD timings of only 5-5-5 (tCL-tRCD-tRP)
  • DDR2 800 SIMMs with SPD timings of only 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 (tCL-tRCD-tRP)
Note A minimum of 512 MB of system memory is required to fully enable both the onboard graphics and the manageability engine.


Note To be fully compliant with applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should have DIMMs supporting the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This structure 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 tries to correctly configure the memory settings. Performance and reliability can be impacted or the DIMMs might not function under the designated frequency.

Supported DIMM configurations
The following table lists the supported DIMM configurations:

DIMM Type SDRAM Technology Smallest usable DIMM (one x16 Single-sided DIMM) Largest usable DIMM (one x8 Double-sided DIMM) Maximum capacity with four identical x8 Double-sided DIMMs
DDR2 667 512 Mbit 256 MB 1 GB 4 GB
DDR2 667 1 Gbit 512 MB 2 GB 8 GB
DDR2 800 512 Mbit 256 MB 1 GB 4 GB
DDR2 800 1 Gbit 512 MB 2 GB 8 GB

Tested Memory

Third-party tested memory*
Third-party tested memory occurs as requested by the memory vendors. Memory 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 completed testing by the memory vendor or by Intel using this test plan. These part numbers might not be readily available throughout the product life cycle.

The table below lists parts that passed testing conducted using the Intel Self Test program for Intel® Desktop Board DG33TL.
