How much RAM my motherboard can support


I have a mother board with following details:

BIOS version ECG3510M.86A.0106.2008.0730.1746
Processor type Intel ® Core ™ 2 Quad PC Q6600 @2.40GHz, Intel ® EM64T Capable
Processor speed: 2.40 GHz
System Bus Speed: 1066 MHz
System Memory Speed: 800 MHz
L2 Cache RAM 2x4096KB
Memory Mode Dual Channel
Memory Mode Channel A slot 0 2048 MB
Memory Mode Channel A slot 1 2048 MB
Memory Mode Channel B slot 0 not installed
Memory Mode Channel B slot 1 not installed

I want to understand if I can have additional 4 GB ram in memory mode channel B slot 0 and slot 1...if my motherboard would support 8 GB ram in total? I already have 4 GB in channel A

Please suggest.

  1. Yes, but match the ram brand and speed; check the ram label for specs.
  2. Agree with o1die but also remember that You need a x64 OS to use above 4GB Ram
  3. Thanks o1die and thanks Sundbergad.
    Points taken and in fact I already got the additional RAM in my hands :)
