Shuttle SD36G5M


plight

Recommended Posts

Hello. This is Phil Light. I recently ordered 2 refurbished Shuttle SD36G5M machines.

http://global.shuttle.com/product_detail.jsp?PI=97

 

Here is a compatibility list, please click on "memory support list."

http://global.shuttle.com/support_list03.jsp?PI=97

 

You'll note that the first entry on the list is Corsair PC6400 CM2X1024-6400PRO

I do not have a DIMM of this exact type on hand, but I do have a CM2X512A-6400 here. Here is a picture of it seated in the slot: http://plight.googlepages.com/sitting.jpg

 

And now, the kicker: a close-up of the notch.

Hopefully, you can see that the notch is approximately 1-2mm away from where this particular DIMM expects it.

 

As the memory fits into other systems just fine, I believe that it is ok. I have not purchased memory for the Shuttle yet, but I'm hesitant to do so, because I've never heard of DDR2 which has a notch at this very-slightly-different location. (and especially not with such a close model number!)

 

Is this motherboard defective, or does memory exist which is supposed to fit in that slot?

 

Thank you,

-PL-

That module should physically fit into your motherboard, have you flipped the module around to see if the pins line up properly? With this system XMS modules would not be recommended unless you can adjust the memory voltage to its tested setting. Please look up your system on our memory configurator for the correct modules you should use:

I did flip the memory in both directions; this was the closer side.

 

I also looked in the configurator tool you linked me to, and unfortunately when I selected barebones > shuttle, I didn't see model SD36. Perhaps I'm missing it?

 

I guess I should contact Shuttle directly--is it a correct statement that all DDR2 DIMMs should have their notch in the same location?

Type "Shuttle XPC SD36G5M" into the "Search By Manufacturer Model Name" box and it should pop up. All DDR2 modules have the same 240-pin layout, so if this board is infact the SD36G5M it should support DDR2 modules, and if the module in the picture is indeed a PC-6400 module, then it is DDR2.
