Ddr2 Pc-4200 Ram

Hey guys, how many mobo's now days run this stuff? I was looking on outpost.com and didn't see any that they were selling running 4200, only 3200. I may not have looked hard enough, but anyone wanna post up some links so I can see what kind of specs and processors the mobo's that run 4200 are?



Thanks in advance

You'll need to be running a newer P4 ( not sure but I think its the 915 chipset?).

Most systems (AMD or Intel) run PC3200 stock. It's when overclocking that you run the higher speed memory. I have an Athlon 64 3800 that is 200fsb stock but I am running PC4000 mem at 270fsb or equivalent to PC4400.

problem is, that doesn't help since DDR2 memory is 240-pin. I'm looking for mobo's that use 240 pin RAM

I tried to give you an explanation of speed, why argue with my explanation if your not sure about it in the first place? The first poster's response was DDR2 is used in many newer P4 and Xeon boards. Numerous boards out there use DDR2. As far as speed you listed PC-4400 which is DDR. DDR2 lists speed as PC2-4400. I am well aware of what DDR and DDR2 is, that is why you asked the question and I answered. My post explains speed ratings whether it is DDR or DDR2. A DDR2 motherboard rated for PC2-4200 DDR533 can run just about any speed ram. If you overclock your bus speed will be higher than 533 so it better to run higher speed memory or else you will have to run a divider to run the memory slower than the bus. Here are some models that use DDR2. I used my combo as an example because it applies to just about any processor or memory type. You can go to just about any online site such as Newegg and search for motherboards for specific memory type. Newegg has a drop down menu where you can filter motherboard by memory type, number of slots, and standard speed(DDR2 included).

Asus P5VDC-MX LGA775
ECS PF5 Extreme
MSI P4N SLI-FI
Intel 945PVSLKR
Abit AL8-V

I didn't see the DDR2 specific mobos on Newegg at first, I also didn't know that mobos could run both 184 and 240 pin RAM. My fault

No problem, it can be confusing as hell, especially since they started making motherboards that will run both. DDR2 has much more speed potential and runs much cooler but at much looser timings.
