P4 memory problems.

Im a AMD man myself but I give technical help on the pcgamer forum.

Somebopdy there wants to upgrade his rambus P4 memory from 128mb to 256.

He has a ms-6339 850 motherboard. that used the 850 chipset.

He currently has two 64mb samsung chips.

MR16R0824AN1-CK8 64MB NON- ECC.

Questions...

Can he use one 128mb stick and a continuity Rimm or does he have to use two 64mb sticks ?

Does he have to buy Non ECC memory or can you run ECC memory with ECC turned off ?

Where would be the best place to buy (in the UK)

Please read these to see how much im struggling.

Those delightful RDRAM sticks have to be in identical pairs. Turning ECC off isn't possible with SD/DDRAM. I don't know if the ECC feature can be disabled with RDRAM. I doubt it.

'Fraid I don't know jack about etailers in the UK, sorry.

Thanks allot cloasters.

So I need to find somewhere that will sell two sticks of Non ECC memory.

Somebody told me that on the 850 chipset you could run a single stick alongside a continuity Rimm, is that wrong ?

Shuh! I forgot about the "dummy" DRDRAM module that comes with RIMM mainboards. Ya got me pardner, I can't remember the details about this "dummy harmonica."

Sorry, I forswore the purchase of any mainboard that uses DRDRAM long ago.

If you have 4 slots, put the 2~64 together( removeing one continuity card) put or new rimm in its place.
usally your new (assuming "biggest,fastest) continuity card should be Slot 1&2 and your pair of 64's should be 3&4, but try different combos

also, if you can afford it go bigger then 128 (like 256 or 512)on your new rimm, at worst you can pull the old ones if there is a conflict, and most likely you will end up with a screamin' 384 or better
While it may be cheap (reltivley)now,as supplies are dumped,
Rdram (u r damned) is going away soon, and prices will skyrocket (Don't believe me? check the price of EDO simms)
