ASRock1600Twins RAM Compatibility

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So currently i only have 2gb of RAM because one 2gb stick crapped out on me a while back so i decided to look at some DDR3 RAM because its cheaper now anywways. So i was looking at Corsair Vengeance 8GB which is 2 4gb sticks but i thought id have a look at the mobo manual just to verify compatibility. So i check the manual and it says, Support DDR3 1333/1066/800 Max Capacity 4GB.

Does this mean that it will underclock my ram and also only be able to use 4GB?

Sorry if this sounds like abit of a noob question but i just wanted to have it verified.

Thanks alot!

[EDIT] I was looking for 8GB because maybe when i get a new PC (Hopefully Soon) I could just use that RAM.

Yep, I went to their website and verified the info. Your motherboard supports only 4gb ddr3 ram at max 1333MHz. Since it supports dual channel function, I would suggest you to use 2x2gb config. If you are planning to use this board for long, then theres no point in spending money on ram which are rated at more than 133mhz. Get any module set with the following specification.... 2x2GB DDR3 1333MHz cas latency<=7.
