PostSubject: OK, any of you crazy gearheads have some hardware laying around?   Tue Sep 04, 2012 11:47 am

Right now, I have a Quadcore AMD 2.6, Asus Mobo(that only allows 4GB RAM at 400MHz sigh).., DDR2 RAM

What I am looking for is either, an AM2 socket motherboard that will take at least 8GB of RAM, OR,:

A whole new quad core Intel or AMD mobo combo, possibly even with some RAM...

I am having to run stuff on medium to low and now need to upgrade...

Lemme know what you got, and how much you want.. I am looking at some things on Tigerdirect but, thought I'd hit you guys up first.

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm in the same sinking boat...
Still running DDR2 ram on an old AM2 mobo.

It's my RAM that is the huge bottleneck.. I can deal with the rest of what I have if I could get more RAM at a faster MHz... But I can't do that til I swap out the motherboard.

OK, here's the deal... My mobo is supposed to take 8GB of RAM and supports a maximum of 1066MHz operating speed.. However, I have 4 x 2GB sticks of RAM in it, and it only shows 4GB running at 400 MHz.... If I can solve this problem, I think I'll br OK... If anyone wants to help me research this, I would be appreciative... So far, I haven't found anything.. My mobo is:

ASUS m3n78-Pro

Well what is your CPU? AMD2 or AMD2+? If so then there is your problem. Its due to the fact that the CPU is at its limits and only a AMD2+ can support all of the RAM.

did you do a msconfig, go to boot tab and click on advanced to see if your max memory is checked or limited?

If you don't mind switching to Intel I'll be replacing my mobo in a few weeks. Infoz here.
