Intel® Desktop Board DX48BT2
System memory

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

  • Dual or single-channel memory configurations
  • Four 240-pin Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts.
  • 1600/1333/1066/800 MHz DDR3 SDRAM interface
  • 1.5V with option to raise voltage to support higher performance DDR3 SDRAM
    DIMMs
  • Unbuffered, non-registered single or double-sided DIMMs
  • Non-ECC DDR3 memory
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory only
  • Up to 4.0 GB utilizing 512 MB or 1 GB technology
  • Up to 8.0 GB utilizing 1 GB technology
Notes To be fully compliant with applicable Intel® SDRAM memory specifications, the board should have DIMMs supporting the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. If your memory modules do not support SPD, a notification to this effect is displayed on the screen at power up. The BIOS tries to configure the memory controller for normal operation.

If you are using DDR3 1600 MHz DIMMs, you should only populate two of the four DIMM slots and specifically one slot in each channel. Use slot 1 of each channel (black connectors).

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

Tested memory

For information on Intel® XMP-ready DDR3 SDRAM DIMMs, see Extreme Memory.

Third-party tested memory*
Third-party tested memory occurs as requested by the memory vendors. This 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. The memory listed here 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 DX48BT2.
