RAM FOR ASUS A7V ???

I'M UPGRADING MY MICRON MILLENIA C366. GOING TO AMD ATHLON 800 SOCKET A, AND ASUS A7V KT133 SOCKET A REV. 1.02.
WILL MY TWO 64MB 168-PIN DIMM 8X64 SYNC UNBUFFERED SDRAM CHIPS FROM MICRON WORK WITH THE UPGRADE ?
MICRON PART # CT8M64S4D-8LDTAG
IF THEY WORK, I WOULD ALSO APPRECIATE ADVICE ON A BETTER CHIP/CHIPS TO USE.
THANKS
DENNIS

  1. They should work just fine. You didn't mention the MHz but you can set that in the bios (whatever it is 66, 100 or 133).

    I would suggest Crucial if you want new mem.
  2. If your memory is PC66 you will have to upgrade to at least pc100...
  3. THE BOOK SAYS 66MHZ SDRAM PARAMETER FOR SYNCHRONOUS MEMORY.
    DIMM MODULES MUST BE UNBUFFERED AND OPERATE AT 3.3V.
    NON-ECC (64-BIT) MEMORY.
    If this isn't the info you need, can you tell me where to find the info?
    Thanks

  4. Hey Dennis. first turn the [-peep-] Cap's off. now then, I also have the ASUS A7V. I use all 3 of the DIMM's. 1 128MB POS CAS3 PC133 (dimm 0), 1 64MB Micron PC100 CAS3 that does 133 (dimm1), 1 32MB PC100 total POS ram.. (dimm2). Everything works great. I have had no problems at all with memory and the A7V. The lowest FSB options that I get in BIOS though is 90mhz, (you would also lose 10% of your CPU speed by doing this) if your PC66 cant do 90mhz you are kinda in a bad spot. But with prices as they are today you can get a stick of PC133 CAS2 for 85$ not bad at all.

    THANKS FOR THE ADVICE !!!
    I FOUND SOME INFO ABOUT A7V, AND THE RAM THEY USED FOR THEIR TEST ON THIS SAME WEBSITE.
    DOES THIS IDEA FOR RAM MAKE SENSE TO YOU ?
    THANKS

Now in a class action suit against them. ..........which is rather useless B.S. info for you. HA!

    I FOUND OUT THAT MY OLD RAM CHIPS WON'T WORK IN THE UPGRADE.
    WILL THE CT16M64S4D7E WHICH IS A PC133, 7NS, CL2, 3.3 V WORK WITH THIS UPGRADE ?
    I HAVE A MICRON HDI001207-00 8.4GB ATA-33 HARD DRIVE...........
    BBBUUUTTTT, I'VE FOUND MICRON'S WEBSITE TO BE NEARLY THE MOST USELESS SITE I HAVE
    EVER USED FOR SEARCHING ABOUT THE PRODUCTS I HAVE BOUGHT FROM THEM. (NEARLY ONE HOUR OF
    SEARCHING GAVE ME ZIP RESULTS ON TRYING TO LEARN MORE SPECS ABOUT THE H.D.) IT WILL BE A COLD
    DAY IN HELL WHEN I EVER BUY FROM MICRON AGAIN. END OF SERMON..............ANY ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE ME
    ON KEEPING/UPGRADING THE H.D. ??? OR IF THIS IS THE CHIP YOU WOULD INSTALL ??
    THANKS

  6. the Athlon 800 requires at least PC100
  7. You need PC-100 RAM for an Athlon/Duron/T-Bird system.
  8. PC100 or PC133 should work.

  9. I use two PC133 128MB modules in my A7V. Go for it, less than $100 for one 128MB module, I recommend 128mb or 256mb modules, don't mess with the small stuff, what video card are you going to use?

    >=================>GOOD EVENING

    I currently have a ViewSonic E771 17", and the Micron Millennia board has 4MB nVidia Riva 128 integrated video. For my uses, this setup has been very acceptable. I'm assuming "integrated", means "stuck there". Any thoughts on a relatively inexpensive video card option?
    I'm going to go ahead and get one of the same type of RAM modules you use from Crucial.
    Thanks
