Tue Mar 27, 8: All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder. If you use a FSB of Mhz, you can’t use PC66 dimms, and if you overclock your FSB to Mhz, you need PC modules you can of course try to use modules not rated for that speed, but you shouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t work stable. Wed Mar 21, 9: Such modules won’t work, they look quite similar from a chipset perspective to type 1 , but they require the so-called “8k refresh” and the bx chipset only supports up to 4k refresh.

So does their BX offering fair against the competition?

No, you can’t, i40bx bx chipset doesn’t allow that. At the time, it was one of the only enthusiast level motherboards that came in black.

I don’t completely understand that. That vintage motherboard probably does not support MB high density memory and the MB low density sticks demand a premium.

The official part number is BX. Fortunately this Geforce 4 did not complain at all. What module sizes are supported on my bx-based board? They aren’t widely used in normal pin dimms in reality i440vx but might be more popular in the future they have 4 chips per sidebut are often found in so-dimms for notebooks 4 chips per side. This page was last edited on 11 Aprilat They are mostly used in cheap generic ram an exception are registered ram modules, where such chips seem to be quite common and where they shouldn’t cause any problems in a board with a chipset which supports them – but unfortunately the bx does not.


What’s the difference between the i440BX and the i440ZX??

Not nearly as ans as the additional RAM alone. It will not cover problems specific to one board, but in general all boards based on the bx chipset support the same modules.

All other MB modules which have 8 or more chips should work since they are based on either Mbit or 64 Mbit technology. This site hosts no abandonware. I have more than MB memory and the board seems to recognize all of it, but Windows acts strangely, telling me that I don’t have enough ram or just doesn’t start some applications.

Wed Mar 21, 1: Usually it is recommended to use the same ram modules for all ram slots, but it should work without problems if you mix different brands, speed grades, sizes.

Will the highways on the internets become more few? I440bc can get it here: The trick will be to get compatible memory.

Asus P3B-F iBX Motherboard Review –

May 12, Posts: Nov 26, Posts: These modules have 9 instead of 8 chips or 18 instead of 16 and the module is organized as yzMx72 instead of yzMx I have a P2, more than MB memory which all gets recognized but my computer runs really slow. I believe — though I haven’t tried it myself — that the Mhz PIII would probably work, though of course at only January Learn how and when to remove this template message.


SDRAM has different types of density? Do I need registered memory? You’re better off just getting more memory if the client wants to limit expenditures. The older P2 up to and including the Mhz versionhave a cacheable ram area of only MB, so not all of your ram will get cached.

Following cards are known to work well: Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. However, this inflicted a performance penalty on graphical performance since PCI has significantly lower bandwidth throughput than AGP. No MB module will work in a board with the bx chipset, regardless what a vendor might tell you on the website.

For me, the 10x setting is the one i would prefer.
