System memory features
The desktop board supports the dual or single-channel memory configurations defined below:

  • Two 240-pin Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) SDRAM dual inline memory module (DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts
  • Support for:
    • Non-ECC DDR3 1066/800 MHz memory
    • Serial presence detect (SPD) memory only
    • Unbuffered, non-registered single or double-sided DIMMs (except double-sided
    • DIMMs with x16 organization)
    • Memory configurations listed below:
      • Up to 1 GB utilizing 256 Mb technology
      • Up to 2 GB utilizing 512 Mb or 1 Gb technology
      • Up to 4 GB utilizing 1 Gb technology
  • A minimum of 512 MB of total memory is required

System resources and hardware (such as PCI Express* devices) require physical memory address locations that can reduce available addressable system memory. This could result in a reduction of as much as 1 GB or more of physical addressable memory being available to the operating system and applications, depending on the system configuration and operating system.

To be fully compliant with all applicable Intel SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs 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.

Supported DIMM configurations

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.
