System Memory

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

  • Two 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM dual inline memory module (DIMM) sockets
  • Support for DDR3 800 MHz or DDR3 1066 MHz DIMMs
  • Support for up to 8 GB of system memory


Memory and system bus speed considerations
The Intel® Desktop Board DG41BI supports multiple processor and memory speeds. It is important to understand that not all memory speeds are supported with all processor speeds. The table below shows the processor and memory speed capabilities.

800 MHz Memory 1066 MHz Memory
800 MHz Processor memory runs at 800 memory runs at 800
1066 MHz Processor memory runs at 800 memory runs at 1066
1333 MHz Processor memory runs at 800 memory runs at 1066

Tested memory

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.
