It is most likely slot 1 but might be new enough to be s You’re better off just getting more memory if the client wants to limit expenditures. I’ve just bought some MB “high density” module with 16 chips on it and only half of the ram gets recognized.

I recall working on a few Intel brand BX boards that wouldn’t work with any MHz P3 unless they were a certain revision.

The higher end GX chipset released in June that was originally intended for servers and workstations has this support. Also, make sure it’s not a Tualatin or you’ll need an adapter.


I was pretty sure there was a high-end Asus board for just that application. I have a P2, more than MB memory which all gets recognized but my computer runs really slow. I didn’t ans bother opening the tower one of those horizontal ones since what you guys have said thus far made sense and it will probably be easier to just buy him a used PIII tower nad be done with it. Because the OS doesn’t use the cached ram first, you will get a tremendous performance penalty.

SDRAM has different types of density? These modules have 9 instead of 8 chips or 18 instead of 16 and the module is organized as yzMx72 instead of yzMx You’re better off just getting more memory if the client wants to limit expenditures.

Can a 133Mhz FSB PIII be used on an i440BX motherboard?

Newer quality Dimms feature such organization, but they will not work on bx-based boards. I have not an iBX board, instead i have a board with iEP chipset. Generally, all modules smaller or equal to 64MB work without problems.

Modules with 16 ram chips, each chip organized as 16Mx8.

Usually it is recommended to use the same j440bx modules for all ram slots, but it should work without problems if you mix different brands, speed grades, sizes. I do not recommend any specific brand.

All other MB modules which have 8 or more chips should work since they are based on either Mbit or 64 Mbit technology. Nov 26, Posts: Wed Mar 21, 5: This motherboard has a P3 above mhz. If that happens, you’ll need one of those high-quality slockets, to change the reported-VID to something supported 1. Any comments, suggestions to Roland Scheidegger.
