Actually YOUR Pro has been anything but fussy about memory.
As long as you put in DDR 400 memory it works every time!
It depends on the luck of the draw and I'm just not that lucky As you'll see from this thread I had previously tried 2 different DDR400 dimms and neither worked for me. So I resorted to hunting down a 1GB dimm with the same modules as the factory supplied one. So unfortunatley the one I now have is DDR 333 and I believe that causes me problems when running the cpu at a 533MHz bus speed. But that too can be worked around by getting hold of a 2Ghz 400 Mhz bus cpu.
Stolen enough from this forum, so it's time to give a little back.
I have the N5200pro (non BR ) Any one know where to get the multiport daughterboard??
I went to my local memory store memoryten, down the street and they hooked me up with a mt16vddt12864ay-40bf 1GIG. Don't know WTF the brand is (an M with a weird circle around it, have pics) but after googleing it looks like they might have 2gig modals........:kekeke: might need that when I turn this into a unraid server.
So after hacking the VGA, and setting the 133 jumper, I was able to get these results; with 400/200/100/133 I think, I don't know I forget. CPU was !.50GHz DDR333 now is 1.98GHz BUT at DDR200...
No notice in performance yet. I need to re-break my 5 disk raid-5 into a 4 disk raid-5, then use that extra 1tb disk as a iscsi target. Before all this I was getting ~25MB/s iscsi. Witch I wont do until I get my EON system online.
FYI: I 1st tried the kth-xw4100a 1g for its ECC capitulates which would have been awesome for my needs, but it doesn't work. So if you or anyone know of need of this please let me know!
Memory is designed to be backward-compatible, so generally speaking, you can safely add faster memory to a computer that was designed to run slower memory. However, your system will operate at the speed of the slowest memory module.
One thing to keep in mind is that the memory does need to be the same type - for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2 and DDR2 cannot work in a DDR3 system.
We recommend that you use the Crucial Memory Advisor™ or System Scanner tools to find the right memory for your computer. Rather than give memory modules catchy names, the industry refers to modules by their specifications. But if you don't know a lot about memory, the numbers can be confusing. Here's a short summary of the most popular types of memory and what the numbers refer to.
