GIGABYTE GA-965GM-S2 compatibility


Recommended Posts

Ram Guy,


Thanks for your help, but VS2GSDSKIT667D2 is PC-5300, not 6400 and therefore is not dual channel either.


If I could expect 2G chips in the near future that run at the board's specs, I would consider 5300 now. But I suspect all of the bigger stuff will also require higher than 1.8v.


I think the mobo can go up to 2.0, but I don't know about 2.1.

No such thing as dual channel memory? So I have been suckered by the marketing team!

I have read that users have run the XMS2 at 1.9 to 2.0 volts. Is that truth or also misinformation?

Lastly, does Corsair offer 6400 for this board, or would it simply not worth the price difference?

Dual channel is a function of the memory controller not the memory. We do make and sell kits of memory that are tested in a Dual channel MB but the memory in it self will not make the system duall channel!


We test our XM2S-6400 and XM2S6400C4 modules at 1.9 Volts but many Intel chipset based MB's from testing them in our lab; many times need the voltage set to 2.0-2.1 Volts.
