Welcome to the forums, nodachi!


Mainboards based on the VIA P4X400 chipset do not support registered/buffered memory modules. The "R" of the TwinX2048RE-3200 stands for registered and thus this set would not run on your system.


I cannot reccommend any modules to add in with your current module except another of the exact same model and revision as mixing/matching modules is never advisable.


However, if you would like to provide the make and model of your mainboard (the lines are blank on your list, just a heading) I can suggest compatible modules!

thanks for the headsup candykid


for some reason i copied and pasted the R in the model number ^^;;

the model i wanted to buy is unbuffered twinx2048-3200

this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145486


so if its unbuffered it should work right?



i have no idea what the model make stuff you were asking for so i took screenies of cpuz




thanks for the help man:D:

We do not recommend mixing and matching any modules together as it can cause many problems. My suggestion would be to add only what you currently have in your system to the exact part number or remove your CMX512-2700C2 module and to add new RAM throughout your machine. Sorry about that.
