    DG45FC Memory Limit

    adayton01


      When I built my DG45FC m/b desktop at an Intel Channel Conference in Garden City, Long Island, New York

       

      It came with a single 2 Gbyte Kinston Ram in one of two available slots. This was great for immediate upgrade to 4 Gbytes Ram.

       

      I like the incredible general utility of this m/b, however I should like to give it some extra Ram headroom by installing two

       

      Kingston KVR800D2N6K2/8G4 GB8006-6-6Non-ECCx8Elpida E2108ABSE-8G-E

       

      as listed in the following Intel support document:

       

      http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dg45fc/sb/CS-029148.htm?wapkw=dg45fc

       

      This appears

       

      to allow 8 Gbytes of total DDR2 ram to be utilized on this m/b.

       

      Kingston (who has since discontinued that product SKU# ) says their old records indicate

       

      only 4 Gbytes total ram is supported on this m/b.....BUT their support tech indicates the possibility

       

      that Intel bios updates may have increased that to 8 Gbytes limit.....?????

       

      I have the latest bios installed [ IDG4510H.86A.0135.EB.EXE ] however, I find no reference to Ram updates.

       

      The question is: Is this m/b capable of handling 8 Gbytes of Ram?

       

      Thanks for your help.
