Can a ASUS P4S533 Series Motherboard support a 256mb SDRAM PC2300?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, im fairly new to the site and wondering if anyone can help me on this inquiry, Im sure there are peeps who have this motherboard as well.. I surfed the net but didnt find much info on RAM supports for my motherboard..

I currently have 128mb SDRAM PC133, i was wondering if my current motherboard (ASUS P4S533 Series Motherboard with SiS 645DX/651 Chipset Series) can support a 256mb SDRAM PC2300..

Btw, i dont get what those 'PC133,PC2300' and 'SDRAM/DDR' means.. Can anyone help me also on this?

Thanks in advance!

*PS: the ASUS site didnt help at all in my question.. Nor replied to my inquirie

yea. DDR and SDRAM are 2 differnt but very related things. SDRAM was the generation of RAM b4 DDR.

SDRAM - 168 pins
DDR(double data rate) SDRAM - 184 pins

It appears your motherboard supports up to DDR 333- pc2700, however maybe it only goes up to the speed rating of DDR 266- pc2300. I don't see anything that indicates to me that your motherboard even supports SDRAM pc100/133. only DDR.
