Memory capacity for TYAN S8230 Tags: Memory Tyan Last response: September 21, 2010 5:48 PM in Memory Share mahmood September 21, 2010 4:56:01 PM We have a new magny-core from AMD and the motherboard is TYAN S8230GM4NR. The question is what is the best configuration for RAM? It is stated in the MB that memory channel is quad (Memory channel 4 Channels per CPU). So what is recommended? 8x4GB or 16x2GB? More about : memory capacity tyan s8230 chunkymonster September 21, 2010 5:19:00 PM Assuming you are populating the motherboard with 2 physical cpu's, either 8x4GB of 16x2GB will give you quad channel memory on two physical cpu's with that motherboard. Price aside, going with 8x4GB (one DIMM per channel, per physical cpu) is a better way to go; it will also keep the other memory slots open for future memory upgrades. jaquith a c 347 } Memory September 21, 2010 5:26:24 PM Welcome Newcomer!
