    I Don't See How.....

    This needs further clarification. Unless this board has sockets for both type DIMMs, then you couldn't have installed DDR2 in it. At least not without a hammer. The DDR socket has 184 pins erstwhile the DDR2 socket has 240.

    Newegg doesn't list this particular board. But none of the ECS boards they do list show dual socket types. I checked ECS' site as well and didn't find the number you gave, I could have missed it. (easily)
