Samsung + Corsair on Asus mobo


Robocrotch

Recommended Posts

I currently have 2x Samsung M368L322ETM-CCC, 256MB DDR PC3200 CL3

 

And I just purchased the following:

Corsair 1GB PC3200 400MHz (2x512MB) DDR 184Pin - Model #VS1GBKIT400

 

I got a Dell Dimension 8300, im at work right now but I believe it's an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard with 800fbs.

 

My question:

So I have 4 slots for memory, will I be able to keep the 2 samsungs on the white hinges, put in the two corsairs on the black hinges and work at full capacity?

 

Or should I make bios modifications, or remove the samsungs (maybe won't be compatible?)

 

Thanks alot

Welcome to the forums!

 

I highly doubt that Dell would use that particular mainboard as they are not known for using top-end boards.

 

Also, their specifications make no mention of the IEEE1394, Gigabit LAN (they said integrated 10/100), 5.1 Channel audio, or SATA-RAID functions of the P4C800-E Deluxe mainboard.

 

As far as memory goes, be careful. Dell's are extraordinarily picky about what memory you put into them and if I were you, I'd try the VS kit by itself first, to see it if'll work, then I'd add in the other modules, but I highly doubt you'll get all four to work together.

 

You'll probably end up ditching the Samsung stuff for another purpose and just using the VS Kit. With the kit alone, you should be able to set everything (well, anything that Dell actually lets you set) to auto.

 

FYI, your mainboard should have a model number silk-screened onto the PCB (printed circuit board) and therefore you can determine what board it is!

Thanks, I'll check it tonight, I only said Asus p4whatever because I went on google typed in dimension 8300 motherboard and that's what came up.

 

I bought the ram so that I could run everquest2 better... I had to restart every like 2 hours with my 512mbs... I'm guessing these will help alot even if I have to ditch the samsung...

 

Thanks!

Below are screenshots of CpuZ in action... I've noticed my RAM is now running at 333mhz, when I had only my two Samsungs it ran at 400...

 

Looking at the screenshots, can you give me any tips on what I could do to improve speed?

 

slot1 and 3 are the same memory, slot 2 and 4 are the same memory...

 

Thanks alot!

I ran latency.exe sending the results to a txt file and here are the results

2 cache levels detected

Level 1 size = 8Kb latency = 2 cycles

Level 2 size = 512Kb latency = 23 cycles

 

 

I'm also curious as to what all these numbers mean... As I have no clue what I'm looking at...

It's running @ 333 Mhz because you're running 4 sticks. Either that or because the sticks don't play well at 400 mhz, but probably the former.
