Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO2
System memory


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

  • 1.5 V, 1.3 V, and 1.25 V DDR3 SDRAM DIMMs
  • Three independent memory channels with interleaved mode support
  • Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction: Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported.
  • 24 GB maximum total system memory.
  • Minimum total system memory: 1 GB
  • ECC and non-ECC DIMMs
  • Serial Presence Detect
  • DDR3 2400 MHz, 2133 MHz, 1866 MHz, 1600 MHz, 1333 MHz, and 1066 MHz SDRAM DIMMs
  • XMP version 1.2 performance profile support for memory speeds above 1600 MHz

Using a DIMM with a voltage rating higher than 1.65 V may damage the processor.

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

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.
