DS 16chip Memory & DG965WH ?


Recommended Posts

Hello Corsair Support Team!


I have obtained Intel DG965WH and Core 2 duo 6400.

Now I want to obtain 2 Gb memory for my new PC.

On this forum you recommend VS2GBKIT667D2 for this motherboard.


I have seen recently in "Technical Product Specification to Intel Desktop Board DG965WH" on p.16: "Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported".


I think that your VS2GBKIT667D2 has the same organization: Double-sided 16 chip (8 chip on each side).

I have asked Intel Tech support about this type of memory and they answered me:

"To be 100% sure, we checked and confirmed that double-sided DIMMs with x16

organization are not supported (see

http://developer.intel.com/design/motherbd/wh/wh_mem.htm#1 as well); We remind you that the

operation of any Intel-manufactured product outside the published

specifications for each part can result in data corruption and unreliable

system behavior"


At the same time, I have noticed Foxconn successfully tested some 2Rx8 memory modules for DG965WH motherboard:


If this Intel's DS x16 DIMM limitation belongs to 965 chipset in general then why Foxconn tests this unsupported by Intel type of memory modules?


I do not also understand the next Intel mismatching information, for instance for 975xbx motherboard: http://developer.intel.com/design/motherbd/bx2/bx2_mem.htm

On that page Intel says:

"Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported"


and on the same page also (see table):


"Supported DIMM Configurations "

1024 MB DS 512 Mbit 64 M x 8/64 M x 8 16 [18]


What can you say about this mismatching information and what your advise about VS2GbKIT667D2?


Thank you very much!
