Will the Pentium D support DDR3-800Mhz?
Dec 13, 2012, 7:43 AM
These are the specs,
CPU - Pentium D 945 3.4GHz (
800MHz FSB speed
Mobo - Gigabyte G41M-Combo (Supports DDR2-1066MHz &
RAM - 2GB [One 1GB (DDR2-800MHz) & one 1GB (DDR2-667MHz)]
& thought of upgrading the RAM into a DDR3 since the MOBO supports it.
So, my question is about the RAM concerning the CPU,
Should i stick to DDR2? or can I go for a DDR3?
& if so, will a DDR3-1333MHz support this CPU? or again should i stick to a DDR3 with 800MHz?
(As it's hard to find a DDR3-800MHz & 1333's are very cheap)

The CPU is irrelevant in deciding RAM compatibility.

Whoa! Thanks! *_*
Finally, a veteran saved my day!
667mhz RAM with 800mhz FSB?
PENTIUM G620 AND DDR3 1333MHZ RAM
DDR3 1600mhz only running at 800mhz in CPU-Z
DDR2 or DDR3 ram is perfect with Pentium D 925 mobo MS7255
X38 or P35 + Pentium 4 HT?

I wanted to confirm from you if the Gigabyte G41 Combo motherboard works with your processor- pentium D 945- 3,4 GHz? Giabyte website says it is not compatible.

Of course! With 2x DDR3-1333 2GB RAM, working perfectly till now!
According to the vendor, any 775 CPU would work. So did my 945!
