Hi, hope to receive my new board and chip tomorrow. Just need advice about RAM configuration. Is it OK to have a single stick of 4gb Ram, or would it be better to have 2 x 2gb sticks.
I will be using Win7 32bit as the OS
doesn't really matter 32 bit windows will only see 3.3 GB anyway.
Thank you, I understand that. If I rephrase the question - is it necessary to have 2 sticks of RAM in the board or will one be OK. What are the implications of either configuration?
One is fine.
If you had a 64 Bit OS you could much more RAM , It's the 32 Bit sys that limits you to 3.3GB , Thats why I always Get 64 Bit.
IF you have not opened the package yet maybe you could return it for 64 Bit ??
The specs on your board say it supports up to 32GB, But I would sugest 3 triple channel DDR3-1333 4GB That would be plenty of ram to do what ever .
