DDR2 DIMM Modules that do not use 128 Mb Chips


Recommended Posts

I have a ASUS P5WD2 Premium Motherboard, which says in the manual:


"This motherboard does not support memory modules made up of 128 Mb chips or double sided x16 memory modules."


I have a Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX G (two 2048 Mb modules) and have discovered that it will not work in the motherboard since I discovered in this forum today that apparently it is made up of 128 Mb chips.


I need at least 4 Mb of memory to be able to install Windows 10 64 bit, and preferably more, so I wonder if Corsair (or anybody else) makes such modules.


There are four DIMM sockets on the motherboard and the manual claims that it can support up to 8 Gb of Ram, so four 2 Gb modules would be perfect if such DDR2 DIMMS exist not using the type of chips mentioned above.

Thanks for the recommendation. I never was able to find what chips these modules supposedly are constructed of...


I did however find that two of these matched sets of TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX G modules do function just fine regardless of what ASUS may think... their thing is basically if they didn't test it then it won't work... never mind that these modules didn't exist when they tested this motherboard.


I was using two sets of TWIN2X1024-8000UL memory in it before, which is what you had suggested, but I wanted to add more memory up to the max 8 GB in preparation for Windows 10. It didn't matter with Windows XP that I had before since it wouldn't recognized more than 3 MB of memory anyway, but now Windows 10 64 bit works just fine with two modules of TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX G.
