Intel® Desktop Board DP55SB
System memory


Memory features
The Desktop Board supports the following memory:
  • Four 240-pin Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts arranged in two channels
  • 1600/1333/1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM interface
  • Support for single- and dual-channel memory interleaving
  • Non-ECC DDR3 memory
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory only
  • Up to 16 GB maximum total system memory
  • Unbuffered, non-registered single- or double-sided DIMMs with a voltage rating of 1.65 V or less.

Using a DIMM with a voltage rating higher than 1.65 V may damage the processor.
DDR3 1600 or higher memory support on this motherboard requires compatible XMP enabled memory or advanced knowledge of BIOS and manual memory tuning. Individual results may vary.

32-bit operating systems are limited to a maximum of 4 GB of memory. These operating systems will report less than 4 GB because of the memory used by add-in graphics cards and other system resources.

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
DIMM Capacity Configuration SDRAM Density SDRAM Organization Front-side/Back-side Number of SDRAM Devices
1024 MB Single-sided 1 Gbit 128 M x 8/empty 8
2048 MB Double-sided 1 Gbit 128 M x 8/128 M x 8 16
2048 MB Single-sided 2 Gbit 256 M x 8/empty 8
4096 MB Double-sided 2 Gbit 256 M x 8/256 M x 8 16
