I have an old DFI board that uses the Intel x48 express chip-set.
I have come across some old posts claiming that some of these boards with x48
can actually run 16 GB (DDR3) ram.
Is this the case for the dd2 supported ram of this chip-set?
I have not been able to get is verified.
I still use this old board and bumping up the ram (second hand purchase)
would be a nice.
Officially on the Intel dx48 ocumentation I have seen it is written max supported ram 8 GB.
I would recommend that you check the DataSheet for the Intel(R) X48 Express Chipset, here is the URL: https://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/datasheet/319122.pdf
Supported memory details below:
System Memory Interface
— One or two channels (each channel consisting of 64 data lines)
— Single or Dual Channel memory organization
— DDR3-/1333/1066/800 frequencies
— Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) DDR memory support at
— Unbuffered, non-ECC DDR3 DIMMs
— Supports 1-Gb, 512-Mb DDR3 technologies for x8 and x16
— 8 GB maximum memory
I hope this helps,
