Right DDR3 for this mobo? ASUS P5G43T-M Pro LGA 775

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
was looking at a G.Skill 4GB stick of DDR3 1333

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231310

was wondering if it'll be compatible with this ASUS P5G43T-M Pro for my WHS build.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131602R

will there be any issues?

and also for the specs of the motherboard
"DDR3 1333(O.C.)/1066/800"

i never heard of DDR3 800.. thought they were referring to DDR2 800. if it's DDR2 800, i can use my space 4GB (2x2GB) G.Skill i have from my old PC.

thanks in advance!

from crucial's site, it only mentioned PC3-10600.

http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/compatible-memory-for/ASUS/P5G43T-M+PRO/list.html

so i wasn't sure if PC3-10666 was going to be like backwards compatible?

any other decent ram for this board?

preferably 1 stick of 4GB or 2 sticks of 4.

thanks.

I just put a build together with a P5G41T-M/CSM with the same memory specs and I can't set the RAM to 1333MHz right now. Right in the BIOS it only gives the option for 800 and 1066, so I think it may be linked to the FSB (which would suck because I'm not interested in OC'ing).

I haven't got any solutions yet but I plan on looking around/possibly posting here.

EDIT: Possible solution here. Have yet to try it out.

thanks!

what ram are you using?

so you're saying that any DDR3 1333 will not come out as 1333 and will be to be OCed in order to achieve 1333?

i dont plan on overclocking too.

what's the frequency you're getting?

I got this.

It's 1333, but the options in the BIOS are auto, 800 or 1066. To get it to 1333 by OC'ing you have to bump the FSB to 333MHz (if it's not already there). Then you just scale but the multiplier (in CPU configuration) to whatever is closest. I had an E6500 at 2.93GHz and it's running at 3.0GHz right now because the multi (I'm using 0.8) doesn't put it down to the old speed exactly.

It's a little complicated but if you'd like more detailed instructions let me know, because I'm just drawing from memory right now.

I haven't stressed anything yet to see if the 3.0 is fine, though I imagine it will be. Haven't looked into the timings yet, either, but I'll do that tomorrow.

thanks for the help!

hence probably why in the specs it said DDR3 1333(OC), i thought it meant something else.

what would be the real time advantage/disadvantage if 1333 were to run at 1066 for a WHS?

Hmm, RAM speed questions are probably someone else's domain, but the disadvantage would obviously be slower speed. It was tough to tell what running at 1066 was like because I only had 2GB in at the moment instead of 4GB, but it wasn't like the thing was crawling.

Advantages... possible stability if the computer just absolutely hates your "overclock" to get the RAM speeds up?

I can only tell you how to do it, I'm afraid. I don't have anything concrete in terms of RAM speeds, just guesses.

some rams on motherboards tend to just run at lower speeds... dunno why..

they probably hate each other smile.gif

like my current build... i have 12GB of DDR3 1600 (crucial & g.skill) and somehow it's running at 1066.

ddr3 1600 supposed defaults at 800 x 2. now i have it at 533 x 2 :/

so as of now, my performance is at 533, so i may have to overclock it to go back to 1600.

but i dont mind it right now at 533.. it's doing okay and i dont have any problems.
