I was recently given 2x2GB modules of 1066MHz RAM as an early Christmas present to upgrade my computer from 2x1GB.
My current motherboard only supports 667/800MHz modules, so I would like to buy a new one. It doesn't need to be anything special as I will soon be investing in a Phenom system and I only want to use the current one as a secondary computer (for internet, email etc. but no 3D apps), and I am considering buying Gigabyte's GA-G31M-ES2L because of its low price. My processor is an Intel E5200.
The spec sheet for the motherboard states
Support for DDR2 1066(O.C.)/800/667 MHz memory modules
and I am unsure what '(O.C.)' means. Will I be able to use this motherboard in dual channel mode with two 2GB modules that are clocked at 1066MHz? Also, are there any alternatives which anyone can recommend, or is this a good board?
Thanks for any replies.
