Doing an old dream build and found a good deal on an opteron 180. Will it work in my DFI lanparty board?
memory was super expensive back then & x64 was only in infancy.
Would that work on a A8N-SLI Premium?
Also, is 4GB a hard limit?
Agree! I ran 2x1GB OCZ Platinum Performance. The little suckers overclocked well! Now that I just to run a server on that hardware, I'm wondering if I can shove more RAM in there and I could either buy another pair of OCZ or a kit of 4x2GB of Kingston ValueRAM and just get rid of the overclock (X2 3800+ @ 2.4Ghz -- it's been running stable for 7 years) since I really don't need it on a server...
Sadly, it seems no matter what I do, I might as well just get 2x2GB (or that other set of OCZ) and be done with it...
Thanks for the clarifications!
PS: you can get 4x2GB ECC DDR400 ValueRAM for *cheap* (~$26) on eBay these days... Not sure even that's worth risking though...
I had an opteron email@example.com on an Asrock S939 Dual-Sata2 the mobo that could eventually take am2 cpu's and ddr2 ram, i got alot of life out of that system. Most motherboards could support the old opterons.
PS even had that corsair ram that had the led activity lights.....lol
I still have my Opty 180, A8N32-SLI, with the dominator light up memory modules.. 512x4 I believe..
I'm gonna have to bust that thing out and see if it even runs...
i wouldn't mind reviving mine tho at least you'll be able to download archived drivers for your MB from asus. DFI drivers for any OS might be tricky to find.
Would that work on a A8N-SLI Premium? Don't they have the same chipset? Also, is 4GB a hard limit?
