Question about the ASUS P5WD2 premium motherboard and a RAM upgrade:

I'm looking to put 8GB ram in this motherboard 4x 2GB 800Mhz non-ecc BUT i read this in the asus manual:

blablabla...You may install a maximim of 2GB DIMM's on each slot, but only DDR2-533 2GB density modules are available for this configuration.

Sooooo i wondered since the mobo supports 800Mhz DDR2 RAM, will it work on 800Mhz if i put in 4x 2GB ??? Or is it really a hardware limitation on the Asus P5WD2 premium board and will it lower it from 800Mhz to 533Mhz ???

If you know it mail me at svenDOTvanDOTbavelATgmailDOTcom it would be a great help.

thx

  1. If this is your board: http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/P5WD2_Premium/#specifications
    ... it will accept 2 x 4GB 800MHZ DDR2 memory. Your manual may have been printed back before faster, denser RAM was commonplace.
