Will I have to do anything for this board to accept and run at 1066 or will it automatically do it with 1066 ram...?
if so what do i need to do....im new so anyhelp is appreciated thanks
Asus P5K Premium/WiFi-AP
4 x DIMM, max. 8GB, DDR2 1066*/800 / 667 MHz, non-ECC, un-buffered memory
Dual channel memory architecture
"* The chipset officially supports the memory frequency up to DDR2 800MHz. Tuned by ASUS Super Memspeed Technology, this motherboard natively supports up to DDR2 1066MHz
if im reading this right how do i tune with asus super memspeed technology
No, just install the DIMMs and off you go. If you really want to make sure, check your BIOS settings to make sure it doesn't report it slower and/or to ensure its set. 1066 is great, but even 800 will perform quite well on this board.
Hi, my question is related to 1066 and the P5K Premium motherboard. I just ordered the mobo and Corsair XMS2 DDR2-1066/PC-8500 (Model QUAD2X4096-8500C5DF). There are 4 modules of 1 GB each. After I placed the order, I noticed in Asus' QVL that those modules are supported but only 2, not 4.
1. Will all 4 GB be functional or will only 2 GB be functional?
2. Will the FSB be severely lower if going with 4 GB versus 2 GB due to the tight timing and signal integrity?
I just hope I did not waste my money going with 4 GB. Maybe Asus has not tested the 4 module configuration yet or you cannot achieve 1066 operation? Thanks for any information! The components arrive tomorrow
