I am curios to know if it would be possible for a Mainboard with the NVIDIA 420 Chipset to be able to support RDRAM with ..Rimms are they?

No.

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

By design the NVIDIA chipsets only support SDRAM, not RDRAM.

You just don't understand. The supported CPUs are using a 64-bit path to the chipset, at DDR*133 (aka DDR266). That is exactly the same as the bandwidth of PC2100 DDR SDRAM, which is also DDR266. If you wanted the memory speed to be greater, you would see very little gain, as the memory can only I/O information at the rate the processor feeds/accepts it. It all slows down to the CPU's bus speed at the chipset.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?
