    Default Gigabyte m750 sli best memory?

    Hi there i am using the m750 sli ds4 board which i have almost fully optimised to its limits. Running AMD Phenom x6 1100T processor Geforce 560ti gfx on windows 7 64 bit. The only thing i wanna take a bit higher is my memory i am currently running with 2x 2gb of Geil Blackdragon ddr2 800mhz. I realise 4gb is tight on windows 7 though i have been running bf3 on medium settings very smoothly which i am proud of on this older board. Just wondering if anyone knows the best 8gb kit this mobo can handle for my final upgrade on this pc? Also is it worth upgrading from my onboard sound to a dedicated pci-e soundcard for use of gaming on a headset? Thanks for taking the time to read my post!

    Is this your memory?
    Maybe it's the best to buy another pair and tey that out.
    It might not be just plug & play though.
    Have you tasted the slots that are not currently in use?

    Hi there yep that is the memory i have you think it might be best just to get another 2x 2gb of the same? Was just not sure if there was faster ram avaliable for the board. I havent tried the other 2 but i was guessing they would be ok lol.

    I am just thinking it is the cheaper way to go, and since they already prove to work it's less risky.
    *GB kit won't come cheap and there are not many DDR2 avalable of them now.
    Better test the slots, they may need cleaning as well, or 2x4GB kit will be needed.
    You can try to find memory at different manufacturers sites that are good for your board and faster memory won't make much change like overclocking.

    Is your current memory overclocked? If yes, what memory settings are you using?
    With 8GB of memory, you might need to lower your memory speed somewhat.
    Have you confirmed that others have successfully run with 8GB your memory in your motherboard?

    Check out: GeIL USA Support where they suggest going to The Raptor Pit for unofficial Geil support.
    The Raptor Pit forum index.
    GEIL USA Memory Tech Support (unofficial) - The Raptor Pit
    You might need to contact Geil tech support directly to see if they have specific information for your motherboard with 8GB.

    It's often best to buy all memory modules at the same time, where there is a greater chance that all memory modules are from the same batch. When buying an additional memory kit at a different time, there is a good chance that the new kit will use different memory chips from the original batch and that it might be more difficult for you to get a stable setup.

    I wanted to upgrade by P35 system to 8GB, but my Mushkin 996599 memory was no longer available. I purchased 2 kits of 2 x 2GB Kingston HyperX T1 PC2-8500 memory and had no problem running 8GB with tight memory timings at 847MHz. YMMV

    Just realised i gave you's bad info lol. I currently have 4x1gb sticks of the geil blackdragon ram so i am using all slots. So basically i am looking to see if there is any 4x2gb sets that would be compatible and i will offload the old ram which does ok on the windows experience with a score of 7.5 any thoughts on that?

    The OP is from Scotland, and Newegg doesn't sell in Europe.
    G.Skill is probably the most popular DDR2 memory used in the forum. If you go to their website, check the specific modules that you are considering, where they list the motherboard models that they have tested for compatibility. It will help if you contact tech support to confirm that 8GB should run OK with your motherboard. They often have a disclaimer that says:
    G.Skill guarantees 2 Dimms dual channel operation would reach announced specification.
    which means that a 4 x 2GB setup might not overclock as high as a 2 x 2 GB kit. Buying 800MHz memory rated with 4-4-4-12 timings or 1066MHz memory rated at 5-5-5-15 timings will give you the best performance and overclocking options.

    Let us know how you make out with your new memory and if you need any help with bios settings.
