Corsair compatibility with Asus A8N5X


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I did not do the in depth research that I should have prior to purchasing my Asus A8N5X. I briefly read the manual, but misunderstood the part that said "You may install 256 MB 512 MB and 1 GB unbuffered ECC or non-ECC DDR DIMMS into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section." to mean that I could fill it will 4 Gb off ECC memory. To be fair their compatibility section did not list any memory that could.


They do list the Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2 as non-ECC that is compatible. But Corsair's memory compatibility didn't list any memory that is compatible with the A8N5X. Obviously, people are using it. I have seen a few forum entries that discuss the settings.


The question that I have is whether I can use 4 Gb of this memory. That would be two matched sets. Or does it have to be four matched sticks? I know that I lose some of the memory due to chipset resource allocation, but I am not worried about not having a full 4 Gb. Asus Qualified Vendors List compatibility just indicates that it does not support 4 Gb of Corsair memory, just 2 Gb.


I currently have a couple of sticks of unmatched unknown memory running at 400. I want to do some serious work on this system once it's burned in. I want stable and accurate results.


Thanks for any suggestions.

With this MB if us install more than 2 double sided/Ranked modules it may have to run the memory at DDR333 because of loading on the memory controller! If you want to run 4 Gig I would suggest 2 sets of Twinx2048-3200C2 and set the memory Voltage to 2.8 Volts at Cas 2.5-3-3-7 at DDR333
