Want 1g stick compatable with CMX512-3200LL

Hello

Hope you are having a good day.

I've got 2 sticks of CMX512-3200LL

Asus K8V Deluxe

 

I want 1g stick compatable with CMX512-3200LL

I understand there have been some mixing compatability problems and found this in another group; (pretty much my story)

 

...I had the original two matched 512 mb sticks in the 2nd and 3rd DIMM slots (the two blue ones) made them register as dual modules so the 1st slot wouldn't work. When I rearranged the 512 sticks so I had them in slots 1 and 3 and put the new 1 gig stick in slot 2, the motherboard recognized all 2G's of memory and the computer booted

 

Please suggest compatable 1gb ram stick.

Thanks

Jim

Thanks for your quick response.

 

If there is no compatable ram, and I need to pull the two 512's, how could I fill all three k8v slots for 3g ram. I'm video editing...what ram modules would you recomend?

 

Thanks

Jim

 

I'd advise against filling all three memory slots on your motherboard. This is due to the limitations of the VIA K8T800 series chipsets and Socket 754 processors, which combined will drop your memory clockspeed all the way down to DDR200 (PC1600) instead of the intended DDR400 (PC3200). And such a drop in memory speed will adversely affect overall system performance.
