Hi, I'm upgrading the memory on my D865 Perl Mo Bo, and unsure if it supports 1.8v memory.

Here is the support page for the board....
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865p...

It states 2.5V and 2.6V 184-pin 400 mhz DDR SDRAM DIMMs

I searched for 400 mhz dual channel memory and found these....

Very good price, but it states the voltage is 1.8v

Would these be suitable/safe for my D865 Perl?...possible to change the voltage in the bios?

Thanks for any info.

Richard

Ack!, I didn't notice the "2".

Oh well, more than twice the price, but it's needed, I'm running 4 x 512 in single channel mode.

Thanks for the info and clarification.

Do I take it these can be run in dual channel ? I'm assuming it's standard.

thx

Unless they are different, 2 or 4 modules should run in dual channel mode.

Edit: Windows 32-bit can access a maximum of 3.25 GB of memory. If I were you, I would order only one kit to increase memory to 3 GB.

Thx GhislainG, I missed this reply, I still haven't got round to buying it.
Just one last question, If I have 2 x 1 gb sticks and 2 x 512 mb sticks will they run in dual channel mode?
Could you elaborate on what you mean by "unless they are different"

thanks
