need advice which is suitable for the type of memory ga-x48t-DQ6

Hello everybody,

I intend to buy 8 Gb of memory 2x4Gb (change 2 old dimm), i just looking memory corsair with ram speed above 1600 Mhz (according my mobo support up to 1900)

because i want to OC with maximum speed FSB CPU clock ,

 

my spec

M/b GA-X48T-DQ6 bios F5 (2008)

mem CM3X2048-1600C7DHXIN

proc Q6600 Go 2.4 Gz OC @3.2 Ghz (FSB 400 x 8)

 

 

 

what type of memory support with my M/b, it's up to the old model or a new, important matches my M/b.

because maybe I can get in my country

also please tell the details of how dram chip which in use

 

where I get the memory datasheet as other brands (ex Kxngxxxn) , that brand list detail about how many chip dram use, volt, temp, and so on

 

my option choice (maybe everybody can add), how many chip use ? xmp support ?

 

CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R (what mean R?) ,

CMP8GX3M2A1600C9

CMT8GX3M2A1866C9

CMY8GX3M2A1866C9

CMD8GX3M2A2133C9

CMD8GX3M2A1600C8

CMY8GX3M2B2133C9R

 

where is compatible or not

 

Thank you for your answers!

did you try corsair memory finder?

http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-finder

input your motherboard model on"Search by Manufacturer Model Name "

your motherboard supports

Support for DDR3 2000/1600/1333/1066/800/MHz, XMP memory modules.

(what mean R?)

R means the color Red

 

xmp support ? 

yes

 

where I get the memory datasheet as other brands (ex Kxngxxxn)?
Just search it on corsair webpage on top!! http://www.corsair.com

for example

CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R

http://www.corsair.com/en/vengeance-8gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmz8gx3m2a1600c9r

 

look at TECH SPECS, there you will find everything

thanks for quick respon friends,

 

in memory finder just suggestion with 4 module with 1333 Mhz (mean 2 gigabyte/ module ) hehehe

 

but in this forum in another thread say chipset X48 only support memory modern that build with up 128 M x 8 ? is that true ? or my Gigabyte mobo support all kind memory density ( 256 M x 8, or 512 M x 8 configuration) up to 8 GB

 

so if support can i build with 1 modul 8 GB ? :rolleyes:

 

yeah friend in that spec does show total DRAM chipset memory used :[pouts:

no I don't think you can build with 1 modul 8 gb

 

you will need Four 2GB memory modules to get 8 gb of ram like this one

density I would think 256Meg x 64

okay.. friends, but ramguy say that it will work 2 x 4 GB (CMX8GX3M2A2000C9)

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=93714

 

so i was just wondering if any of your friends have or have ever had any type of 2 x 4 GB of memory below to let me know how many the chip that is in use ?

 

2 x 4GB with speed 1600, 1866, 2000, 2133

 

CMP8GX3M2A1600C9

CMD/CMT8GX3M2A1866C9

CMY8GX3M2A1866C9

CMD8GX3M2A2133C9

CMD8GX3M2A1600C8

CMY8GX3M2B2133C9

CMX8GX3M2A2000C9

 

 

thanks

Since the era of X48 ended many years ago, none of the memory kits available today have been tested on those boards. So there actually is no safe answer, only recommendations based on assumptions.

 

The first thing i would say is, forget about DDR3-1866 and faster kits unless you know how to overclock your system accordingly. You can find the required FSB, straps and settings in any decent LGA775 overclocking tutorial. Also you probably would have to find a dual sided 2x4GB kit and hope your system does start with it somehow, presumably at DDR3-1066. The XMP of more recent kits are optimized for newer Intel platforms, so prepare yourself to manually setting timings and voltages at DDR3-1600.

 

CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 is one of the older kits from that list, maybe give it a shot if it is still available somewhere. There's no guarantee it will work, though.

ok my friend, i know that modern memory has none test in old boards like me,and i don't know what really constraint that memory support for old and new boards

 

but with my analysis it would be density, that it why i need help to every body that have memory module with 2 x 4 GB can tell me how many IC / chip DRAM in 1 module for preparing looking for buying

 

ex.:. my CM3X2G-1600C7DHXIN module have spec

 

4GB (2GB 256M x 64-Bit x 2 pcs.)

 

 

is a kit of two 256M x 64- bit (2GB) DDR3-1600 CL7 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM), 2Rx8 memory modules, based on sixteen 128M x 8-bit FBGA components per module

 

 

"base on intel X48 chipset memory technology and configuration guide that support 128 M x 8 double side to run 1333 Mhz, and For DDR3 1600 transfer rates the X48 Express Chipset only supports approved Raw Card A single sided x8 un-buffered non-ECC Intel® XMP DDR3-1600 DIMM modules"

 

 

you see that my memory module corsair has broken intel white paper

 

and according my experience (base on old comp) and read articles that would be limit with density 256 M x 8 DRAM IC

 

so that way i need every body can give me information for memory 2 x 4 GB , how many IC DRAM that use, please :[pouts:

 

 

if I can loan my memory might be able to say for sure, especially the 512 M x 8 :sunglasse

 

 

and why i looking DDR3-1866 or upper that not use for that level, just downgrade to 1600 (maybe max 1800) to get lower latency timing. :biggrin:

 

 

btw how many IC chip that you have of Corsair GT | GTX | Dominator Platinum ?

 

where forum for overclocking (team hardwareluxx) so i can learn too

 

thanks

If a 4GB module uses 2gbit ICs, then it is dual sided/ranked (2Rx8 = 16 ICs).

IF a 4GB module uses 4gbit ICs, then it is single sided/ranked (1Rx8 = 8 ICs).

 

Because the ICs used can vary with availability and price especially for lower end kits, this is probably not part of the product specifications. A model that once was 2Rx8 could later be 1Rx8 when its original IC is no longer in production or a cheaper IC of a higher density that clears the product specifications becomes available.

 

All my Corsair Dominator Platinum where 2Rx8, that includes CMD16GX3M4A2133C9, CMD16GX3M4A2400C9 and CMD16GX3M4A2666C10. I never tried using them in my abit IX48-GT3 or Foxconn BlackOps, but if you insist i will give it a shot next week.

thanks friend to test memory in mobo chipset X48 for me

 

if all memory of your, you say that using 16 IC (256 M x 8)

then the corsair use old chip configuration so my guest it could be running in Abit mobo X48 ( max memory 8 GB )

 

 

 

once more thanks for supporting me by testing for me :D:
