MEMORY ORGANIZATION COMPATIBILITY?

Just reposting as I'm hoping someone could answer me. Posted a few hours ago, noone replied over the 32 people that read this. Good luck!

Okay. I'm gonna buy this motherboard
http://www.intel.com/support/mothe [...] 025978.htm

I have a Pentium D 920 which is supported by the motherboard

and

1GB Veritech two-sided(8chips each side- total of 16chips)

It says in the overview
Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction: Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported.

" Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported"

What does it mean by x16 organization?
My memory has two sides and has 16 chips, is the overview referring to the memory I have. And so, does that mean I will not be able to used my 1GB two-sided sixteen-chipped memory in this motherboard?

THank you.

  1. Most likely, but trying it out won't hurt anything. Your link didn't work. If the Intel board is an older chipset, I would get another brand with a newer chipset if possible. The g31 or g41 boards often work with older p4 cpus, and give you plenty of upgrade potential, if your ram is pc5300 or pc6400 ddr2.
  2. Glad you didn't give up! Here is a link that may provide you more information. A good starting point: http://www.devhardware.com/forums/pc-hardware-21/double-sided-dimms-with-x16-organization-are-not-supported-103960.html

    Go ahead and install the RAM chips and give them a shot - see whether it works.

    Good luck!
