I used to know how to buy RAM...Help Me upgrade GA-EP45T-UD3P please :)

Hello - sorry to post a somewhat noobish question... I used to know RAM and builds and parts very well in the early 2000s, and then i got lazy and had a rig custom built for me 5 years ago for gaming and what not. I dont game much at all anymore... Want to upgrade the system, which runs flawlessly, now that I have Win 7, to have more RAM and be a little quicker all around.

Specs:



I have NO idea what RAM to get to get me up to 8GB. Gigabyte site says up to DDR3 2200. I cant find 1.9V RAM on newegg. I cant fin this exact PN for sale anywhere anymore (except used). Also cant seem to find 1.9V RAM either. Can someone reco a good, solid, not too expensive (around $80-100) 8GB setup for me to replace the existing OCZ RAM?

Thanks!

  1. here's one for you. It satisfies all the mobo requirements.
    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f310666cl7d8gbrh
    its a 2x4 GB stick, so dual channel operation is gaurenteed
  2. hey gaming god - i got this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314

    And it wont boot. I read somewhere that this MoBo does not support 4gb modules. (i.e. 4 x 2GB will work but 2 x 4GB wont). do you know by chance? or does anyone?
  3. Is your CPU at stock - to run the sticks will need to raise the FSB to 1600, which will OC the CPU also...
  4. good question - ill check and post back. i think it is. are you thinking thats what i have to do and the 4GB max thing is not true? i cant find anything anywhere in gigabytes site or others that say it CANT support 2x4GB
  5. Should, P45 chipset supports 4GB sticks
  6. cpu-z tells me 333Mhz FSB. I tried to change it with the old mem still installed and it wont go to FSB 400MHz, even though I THINK I set it that way in the BIOS . I would love some help (i am an old noob...this stuff used to make sense, and then i stopped tinkering, and you know how that goes...)

    Thanks for help...
  7. Taking the FSB to 400 will prob need additional CPU and NB voltage
  8. do you by chance know what settings i should change? i dont recognize most of them
  9. Sounds like you found the FSB, so next would be the NB voltage (might try taking it up + 0.07 from current value) and the CPU voltage, often called the vCore voltage try it up about + 0.06 to start

    If you still looking for solution for your memory incompatibility issue you must look for this memory kit :CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 but be carefull only Ver. 2.12 will work on your motherboard.
