Hi guys i want to know that if Asus P5g41T M LX3 will support Corsair Vengeance™ 4GB Single Module DDR3 Memory
CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 (1600mhz @ 9-9-9-24)

Even better to know that it will support the above module in dual channel.

I am having Core 2 Quard 2.66 @ 1333Mhz processor for the above mother board. So please let me know so that i can test it.




And Please don't say that "you are having oldest 775 processor so buy i3 / i5 or some ***....." i know i am having oldest technology just need to know before buying this RAM....

Based on the memory validation chart on ASUS's webpage, it appears that bios has been updated to support 2Gb dimm density, so 4GB DIMMs should work okay.

However, 1600MHz on those DIMMs seem to be XMP profile, and the board only lists 1333 memory as overclocked.

So the memory should work, but at a slower speed. However, I don't see any evidence of Dual-sided single DIMMs operating in dual channel. I have a G41 system that won't and Intel's guide on "Flex memory" doesn't show that available. So it's unlikely you'll be able to run Dual Channel with just one of those sticks.

However, a single channel of 1333MHz memory theoretically will saturate the 1333MHz FSB of your cpu, so unless you're doing a lot of DMA transfers you're only likely to get testable differences if you're relying on the onboard video which will use up some of your memory's bandwidth. If you're using a dedicated video card, you shouldn't notice much of a difference.
