Visually ID'ing memory?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I mentioned awhile ago i bought 2 sticks of 512 ddr400 and different motherboards i put them in detect it as 1GB each.
Well last night i used on to test an asus K8V-MX 754 board and it found it as a 512 stick.

So i am wondering if there is anyway of visually finding out what size the stick is. I think the stick info (size, speed, etc) that was written to it may have been incorrect.

I do not have a digital camera, sorry, but the stick has 16 chips (8 per side) and each chip is labelled 'micromodules 128mbx4'..since they are in groups of 4 i figure (16/4) x 128 = 512mb?

All the programs found these sticks to be 1gb each, memtest, cpu-z, everest...except for this asus K8V-MX.

Any ideas?

High density memory is only half-detected by motherboards that don't support it.
