MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum with 2GB (512X4) of 3200XLPro


Recommended Posts

Are there going to be any problems with this setup? I read on MSI's site that double sided memory modules will be run at 333 if they are in all 4 slots. Are these double sided? Any comments. Spec'ing out huge system for work and I want to make sure to have no headaches.


Thanks in advance.

I have a matched pair of this 3200XLPRO (2x512) memory installed on the Neo2, and decided instead of doing careful research, I figured I would just double it by getting another matched pair.


After purchasing this memory, I have determined that it does NOT work in the configuration you are describing (4x512). I have not yet resorted to messing with BIOS to see if I can work around it -- but that already looks like a dead end.


I have tried running all 4 and tried invidual pairs in each slot, and only when a single matched pair was installed, would the box boot up. I did note a strange reset on having _my original_ pair installed, but in the 2nd bank. I just stuck it back in the first bank and running fine since.


Of course, I am now a little irked at MSI that such a limitation exists...now my quandary is to either just upgrade to a newer/different motherboard or just do some sort of return on the additional memory.


In a nutshell, don't do it. If you really want to get this memory, get a more capable motherboard for it. Great single matched pair, but forget 4x512 of this with the Neo2.
