Are these modules single sided or double sided?


Recommended Posts

I would like to upgrade my Gigabyte GA-7N400-L motherboard to 3 gigabytes, the maximum that it supports. That might be possible by installing a TWINX2048-3200C2PT and a TWINX1024-3200C2PT.


However, the manual says that my motherboard does not support two pairs of dual sided modules. A pair of double sided and a pair of single sided should be OK.


So please tell me if the TWINX2048-3200C2PT is single or double sided. And is the TWINX1024-3200C2PT single or double sided? Thanks!

All TWINX1024 (CMX512) DDR modules are double-sided, as well.


In addition, your GA-7N400-L motherboard is one of the very few nForce2 motherboards with four DIMM slots. Most nForce2 motherboards, though they include dual-channel memory controllers, have only three DIMM slots. This is a result of the nForce2 chipset only supporting up to six lines (banks/ranks/sides) of memory total.

Thanks! Maybe I can get to 3 gigabytes by using three sockets.

My motherboard manual seems to say that three double sided modules would be OK. Perhaps I can replace my three 512 mb modules with three 1024MB modules.


Do you think that I could install three CMX1024-3200C2 modules?


Would it be any better to install a TWINx1024-3200C2 and one CMX1024-3200C2?


The memory in my system today is CAS latency three.

If I replace it with your faster memory, (2-3-3-6 timings), will

my system run a little faster? Or are the better timings just an aid to overclocking?
