    Default Ga-x48-dq6

    Hello all,

    Below are the memory specs for the x48.
    1. 4 x 1.8V DDR2 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory
    2. Dual channel memory architecture
    3. Support for DDR2 1200/1066/800/667MHz, ECC, non ECC memory modules.
    Has anyone had any luck using non-1.8v memory with this board?

    I'm unable to find too many 1.8v 4GB kits on the market. The one at my local CC is only DD2-800 unfortunately.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Yeap, lots run fine that are not 1.8. Usually the spec voltage on sticks is the warrantied voltage, not the max it will run at or be stable at

    What brand can you buy? And you do not have to buy a 4x1 kit, you can get (2x1) x 2 which is usually cheaper, or 4 single sticks all the same

    2x2gb

    The 1.8v kit was a Mushkin but I was looking at these originally:


    Redline Memory - PC2-8000 DDR2 - Mushkin Enhanced

    GSkillz also has a kit like the red line one above.


    XP2-8500 DDR2 - Mushkin Enhanced


    Would you go with the red line at 1000mhz or 1066mhz one?

    Thanks for replying,
    Craig

    All mushkins will start at 1.8 if needed it is the JEDEC standard

    Well the main mushkin site is not working for me right now, but the redlines are the top of the line, but the black ones are also very good and some of them may be better then the redlines depending on which you choose!!!

    Either way Mushkins As GREAT, so is the customer service and Site support!

    I seen your thread at mushkin, greg will answer you pretty quickly. Today for sure, he just must be gone right now

    I actually haven't posted at Mushkin so I'm not sure who that was. ;)

    Basically the redline was 1000mhz with 5-5-5-14 timings and the black ones were 1066 with 5-5-5-15 timings.

    I've heard some people having issues with 1066.

    Ohh sorry I had you confused with felix_w here
    Mushkin Support Forums • View topic - Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4 & XP2-8500 2x2GB (996599)

    He posted just a few minutes before you and I just confused the two as he had posted there

    There is issues with 1066 with 4x1, and other issues you see are likely just people not tweaking things right. 1000 and 1066 need different subtimings and some voltage adjustments to run properly

    Of those 2 sets (Link works now for me) I would get the redlines. Those black ones are new models and not many reviews on them yet

    I built a system with this board last week and I have had no problems getting it to post with 4GB (2 x 2GB sticks) of Corsair TWIN2X4096-9136C5DF.

    It runs fine at 1066 with voltage bump to it's rated 2.1 and the default memory timmings. So far I have only overcloeked my E8500 processer to a conservative 3.6 Ghz and everyting has been rock solid.

    I plan on trying to reduce the memory timmings to 5-5-5-15 tonight now that I'm sure the board is stable with the current processer overclock and settings, after that if all is still stable I will trying upping the memory speed.
