Question about dual-channel configuration

Hi guys,

I got a asus a7n8x-x board with a DDR 400 512mb dimm from ( micron i think ) I plan on putting another dimm to have 1 gig running in dual channel mode.

<b>QUESTION</b>: Do i REALLY need to buy the excact same dimm module, or another good quality dimm should run everything fine ???

<b>FACTS</b>:

I got a XP2500 running at 333 ( may overclock CPU as bit by FSB )

ram will NOT be overclocked, and mostly will run UNDER 400mhz.

opinions ?

  1. Get another 512mb PC3200 stick from either Micron or Infineon and you are home. :smile: .

    If I'm not mistaken, that's a nForce2 400 based, which is a <b>Single Channel</b> chipset
    so, sorry, Dual Channel is not for you..
    You'll get one gig of ram, but in single channel mode
  3. Damn Nights, you're right! The X version does NOT support dual channel. It doesn't matter that much what he sticks in those memory slots! :frown:

  5. Sorry for the double post, but Nights is right! You done bought the SINGLE channel board! No DUAL CHANNEL for you!
