Can the Asus Maximus Formula (X38) support 4GB Dimms

Can the Asus maximus formula handle 2 x 4gb ddr2 ram (or more generally can the X38 do this)

See link for this ram

I know it can do 4 x 2gb no problems (with the right bios)

  1. The seller has listed the item wrongly. From Corsair:
    4096 Megabytes of DDR2 memory
     Two matched CM2X2048-6400C5 G modules

    That's 4GB total, not 8GB total.

    Nobody sells 4GB DDR2 modules for PC's, you can get that DDR2 capacity only in FB-DIMMs.

    To marzzes: If they have only been announced today, nobody has them yet.
    To Kevinali: Don't listen to marzzes, the modules you showed were only 2GB each, check the Corsair webpage like I did.
  3. G.Skill has begun offering a 4 x 4 GB as well as a 2 x 4 GB kit with CL5 latency (5-5-15) with either 16 GB or 8 GB capacity.

    Read what I said. It's honest and accurate. It will remain an accurate and relavent answer until you can find 4GB modules for sale.
  5. It's not relevant because the only reason for 4gb dimms would be for 16gb or lower overhead (aka 2 stick) 8gb RAM setups.

    To the OP, I'm very curious about these myself for video editing. It sounds too good to be true for all x38 boards to be supported like they say. I also wonder if that much memory could hustle much past its rated 800 speed?

    Yeh, distributors can probably order them. Who knows how long the process will take. But YOU can't buy them yet, sorry.

    It looks like YOU will eventually be able to buy them.

    But all this trying to prove me wrong (which is usually impossible because I do research first) is pointless to the OP, since he was looking at a 2x2GB kit that the reseller had actually misrepresented.
  7. My bad. I was stoned.
    This isn't the first time this happens LOL.

    In my defence, I would like to point out that, under normal circumstances I am usually a reliable source of information.
