mwarner Posted March 18, 2005 Share Posted March 18, 2005 Hi all, I am currently in the process of speccing up a machine for our company that has 4GB of memory. The machine will be using Windows XP 64-bit Edition and so I was hoping for a Socket 939 Athlon 64 solution. The reason it has to have such a large quantity of memory is because we are to port our database application to 64-bit Windows (due next month) and run a huge database on it. My question is - what modern S939 motherboard has been thoroughly verfied to correctly operate with 4GB of memory, and what memory was paired with it? In terms of chipsets I would prefer nForce4, but it would appear from reading around that there are issues with running 4GB - at least with the Asus A8N SLI. My second choice would, therefore, be the K8T800 Pro. In terms of memory I can get Corsair 2GB XMS3200PT TwinX fairly easily, and can buy Crucial and Kingston 1GB modules too. However, few prople seem to mention anything above 2GB - which is fine for most users, but not for me! From reading through these forums I have seen that the A8V Deluxe seems to work ok with twinx2048-3200 (is this essentially the same as the XMS3200PT above?): http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34108&highlight=4GB+Asus And that the A8N SLI doesn;t seem to cooperate very well: http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34084&highlight=4GB+Asus I would love to hear from anyone who has managed to get 4GB (3.5GB, of course, as the missing 0.5GB of memory addresses are reserved for PCI I/O space, AGP aperture mapping space and other onboard device I/O space) working on a modern Socket 939 board! Or, alternatively, hear from a Corsair representative confirming that a certain combination will work correctly. Thanks!
