Want to add memory to my ABIT NF7-Sv2.0


Recommended Posts

MB: ABIT NF7-Sv2.0

found here:



I currently have a real nice stick of Corsair XMS 512 (CMX512-3200XLPT) that has been running stable at 2-2-2-5 for 2 years playing WoW exclusively.

found here:



My question is:

Bang for the buck, should I spend 100 and buy another 512MB of the same type of memory. Will I still be able to run 2-2-2-5 or will it more likely run at CAS 2.5?


Also, since prices for a 1GB stick are nearly the same, would this make a faster setup. Would I have problems? I see two options:


1. I could get 2x512MB and have 3 nearly equal stick and probably run 2-3-3-6 or worse

eg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145450


2. or buy 1x1024MB and use only 2 of the 3 slots

eg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145576



I seem to recall somewhere that dimm2 and dimm3 where the "shotgun slots for my MB and able to run at 400MHz, but that dimm1 (or if all 3 were used) I would not get 400MHz FSB



Thanks for the help


BTW: running 3000MHz AMD Barton


(and I dont have $250 to spend so 2x1GB are a bit out of my range)

You will not be able to Mix 512 Meg and 1.0 Gig modules with this MB and I would not suggest it with any MB. Your best chance and running tight timings would be to match what you have now or just order Twinx1024-3200XL set of modules for 1.5 GIG and yes you may have to relax the timings to get all three to run properly because of loading on the memory controller.
