ddr is not ddr2. If it had supported ddr400, it had ddr written, not ddr2... so no, it don't support it. in fact, it need an AM2 CPU, which has a ddr2 controller, not a ddr controller, like socket 939 or 754.

This is from its manual:
Supports DDR2 800/667/533/400 DDR SDRAM with Dual-channel
architecture.

Does it say only DDR2 or
both DDR2 and DDR SDRAM?

Or DDR2 and DDR SDRAM is the same thing?

No. Ddr slots have 184 pins, and ddr2 240. They also run at different voltages.

Arh, so if it supports DDR2 then the DDR module will not fit its slot then.

I think I've got a big problem:
I just bought this motherboard for my old Athlon 64 3200+, however, it does not fit the CPU.
The manual and the website says it supports Athlon 64x2, Athlon 64 and Sp, how come my Athlon 64 cannot fit the motherboard?

My old motherboard is 939 socket. So my CPU does not fit it?

And also from the CD comes along with it has no mention about the making of the SATA driver during the WinXP installation.

For other motherboard there is a section of making diskette for SATA driver disk. Can I use other diskette if I make that from other motherboard for SATA?
