Hi guys my current Desktop has the following specs:
Corsair ATX GS600 600W CMPSU-600G-WW
GigaByte GA-B75M-D3H LGA1155 (rev 1.0)
Core i5-3330 3.00GHz 6MB LGA1155 BX80637I53330
G.SKill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
Seagate SATA III Barracuda 7200 1TB ST1000DM003
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
I wil be buying a SSD (WD Green 240GB) and i also want to buy more memory,
i was talking to a seller and he didn't know if my setup was compatible with the Kingston Hyperx Fury Ddr3 8gb 1600mhz (HX318C10F/8)
So my question is: is it compatible or not?
Gigabyte website says this about the Motherboard:
- 4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 32 GB of system memory
- Dual channel memory architecture
- Support for DDR3 2200(OC)/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules
- Support for non-ECC memory modules
- Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules
Intel website says this about the Processor:
- Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 32 GB
- Memory Types DDR3 1333/1600
- Max # of Memory Channels 2
- Max Memory Bandwidth 25.6 GB/s
- ECC Memory Supported ‡ No
I got a little lost when Intel said Max number of channels is 2, bare in mind that the MB it self has 4 slots.
So now i am completely lost, need some help.
Thank you for joining the community.
I see that you are having concerns about the memory comparability of the Intel® processor, allow me to help you investigate the case.
Looking into your inquiry for the memory comparability of the Intel® Core™ i5-3330 Processor upon reviewing the processors datasheet I found the following information:
- Two channels of DDR3 Unbuffered Dual In-Line Memory Modules (UDIMM) or DDR3 Unbuffered Small Outline Dual In-Line Memory Modules (SO-DIMM) with a maximum of two DIMMs per channel
- Single-channel and dual-channel memory organization modes
- Data burst length of eight for all memory organization modes
- Memory DDR3 data transfer rates of 1333 MT/s and 1600 MT/s. The DDR3 data transfer rates supported by the processor is dependent on the PCH SKU in the target platform:
- Desktop PCH platforms support 1333 MT/s and 1600 MT/s for One DIMM and Two DIMMs per channel
- All In One platform (AIO) support 1333 MT/s and 1600 MT/s for One DIMM and Two DIMMs per channel
- 64-bit wide channels
- System Memory Interface I/O Voltage of 1.5 V
- DDR3 and DDR3L DIMMs/DRAMs running at 1.5 V
- No support for DDR3L DIMMs/DRAMS running at 1.35 V
- Support memory configurations that mix DDR3 DIMMs/DRAMs with DDR3L DIMMs/DRAMs running at 1.5 V
