K8V SE Deluxe RAM Speed

  1. Hi all =)

    I am having a computer custom built with a K8V SE Deluxe motherboard put in; I wanted some info on the board, so I googled it and went here:


    It will have 3 512 meg sticks of DDR ram put into it...but here is where the problem comes in...One section of the site reads as follows:

    "Here's an interesting thing with the RAM slots; where you place your RAM will dictate the RAM speed. For example, if I place a stick of double sided RAM in DIMM1, I get DDR 400. If I add another stick of RAM in DIMM2 or 3, I still get 400. But if I place those same two sticks of RAM in only DIMM2 and DIMM3, I would end up with DDR 200 speed. If I filled all three slots up with double sided RAM, I would still only have DDR 200 speed. The max speed that can be achieved with all three slots filled is DDR 333..."

    Is this true!? I hope not =( because I think it would cost me more to get a 1 gig stick rather than 2 512 sticks...

    The first thing you should read is the mobo site at ASUS.

    To get all three sticks to work at ddr400 I did the folowing, with 3 sticks of DDR400 1GB Micron Memory,

    1 Go into the bios set up then to the Advanced tab
    2 Then go to Memory configuration
    3 Go to Memory Lock code
    4 Go to Auto the the enter key arrow down and change it from auto to Limit the go down the menu to [2:1 DDR400)] select that and then exit and save changes and reboot and all you memory should run at DDR400.

    This worked for me.

    Hope this helps

    the asus k8v se deluxe will only run at ddr333 when you insert 3 sticks of ram and I think it's only when it's single sided (not sure on this one).
