Help with matching MOBO and RAM Tags: Motherboards RAM Product Last response: August 12, 2006 12:23 AM in Motherboards Share K1LLTACULAR August 10, 2006 8:35:35 PM Hi all, I keep hearing that it's important to match up particular RAM with particular MOBO's and I'm somewhat confused by this. I keep reading reviews saying "be careful when picking RAM" and I'm not sure how to be careful. Right now, my build includes this MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1681... and this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1682... Is this combination ok and how do I tell for myself? More about : matching mobo ram K1LLTACULAR August 11, 2006 3:23:40 AM Any clues? Generals August 11, 2006 1:34:41 PM the motherboard uses DDR2 rams which matches the one you selected. you didnt mention your processor though.
