GA P35 DS3L question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
If any of you are familiar with this board GA P35 DS3L:, I have ordered 2x2 GB (4GB) of GSKILL 1066 off of newegg (on sale.) I am now pacing because there are mixed reviews saying the board will not pick up just 2x2gb you need 8 gb if your going with 2x2, while others are saying it supports up to a max of 8gb and they say 2x2 will work just fine.......anyone know 100%?

You wont have a problem running 2x2, personal experience with no problems.

Moral of the story don't trust newegg reviews lol good idea was to ask. Hope that helps

We have a P35-DS3L thread here. You should of posted this there instead.

To answer your question, 2x2gb should be fine. I seriously doubt that this board would need 8gb of RAM to get 2x2 RAM kits to work. If you're reading reviews off Newegg, sometimes they're worthless. If you're reading reviews off tech sites such as anandtech, then that's different.

I personally run Gskill 2x2GB sets on that board. I have had no problems what so ever.

It's the P31-DS3L that has RAM problems, but those problems are that it can't run four slots filled with dual bank RAM.
