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

  • Four independent memory channels with interleaved mode support
  • Support for non-ECC, unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with x8 organization and single-sided DIMMs with x16 organization
  • 16 GB maximum total system memory (with 2 Gb memory technology)
  • Minimum total system memory: 512MB using 1 Gb x16 module
  • Serial Presence Detect
  • DDR3 1333 MHz and DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM DIMMs

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.
