DDR3-1066 modern RAM on an old 775 motherboard 4 months 4 weeks ago #2307

Hi all.

I've got the chance to buy 2x2GB Essentials 996573 DDR3-1066, but my motherboard is a 2008 Asrock 4Core1600Twins-P35 (socket 775, chipset Intel P35). Will they work?

Thanks.

Hi,

The 996573 Essentials should be no problem in that mobo.
The only thing with those hybrid DDR2/DDR3 mobos was you can't run both types of memory at the same time.
Its either 2 sticks of DDR3 or you use only DDR2

After a little struggle (initially detected as DDR3-800), they work like a charm. Again, thanks.
