Wed Mar 21, 8: Not nearly as worthwhile as the additional RAM alone. I don’t know what VRM and slocket are, but from what you guys say, this would imply a lot of unnecessary work, especially since the graphics card is IIRC a crappy, 2D onboard one. Buffered modules are similar, but instead of registers, they contain buffers, the difference is that a register is clocked, and a buffer is not. It is possible to have a one bank module with 8 chips on each side of the module as is the case if it is a MB module with chips organized as 32Mx4 and vice versa at least in theory, I’ve not seen a module with 2 banks and 8 chips on only one side – this would require chips organized as yzMx16, which would be more expensive to produce without any advantages. Just web surfing, email, and Word, no.

Read on to find out more Following cards are known i40bx work well: Such modules are cheaper to produce because of the lower pin count of each ram chipbut they won’t work in bx-based boards and will likely cause problems in any other chipset too, IMHO you really shouldn’t buy them. It is also known as the iBX and was released in April Thu Mar 22, 7: No, i440bx can’t, the bx chipset doesn’t allow that.


Gigabyte GA-6BXU i440BX ATX Slot-1 SCSI

Will your video be happy? The official part number is BX.

I’ve just bought some MB “high density” module with 16 chips on it and only half of the ram gets recognized. The older P2 up to and including the Mhz versionhave a cacheable ram area of only MB, so not all of your ram will get cached. You can get it here: Note that the term “high density” is technically wrong, because these modules consist of ram chips with the exact same density mbit per chip as those sold as “low density” which usually consist of ram chips organized as 16Mx8.

RAM FAQ for boards based on the ibx chipset

It is quite astonishing to note that in an industry where technology changes in a blink of an eye, manufacturers such as Asus and ABit still churn out motherboards whose heart is the BX. What brand of ram do you recommend? Do I need registered memory? Will that allow the chipset to go to MHz? Aug 10, Posts: All other MB modules which have 8 or more chips should work since they are i440bs on either Mbit or 64 Mbit technology.

It is most likely slot 1 but might be new enough to be s Please help improve this article by adding citations to i4440bx sources. Not as much as the ram, though. I do not recommend any specific brand. I could be dreaming, but I was sure someone came out with such a board when the MHz coppermine P3s arrived and P4 was still a dog.


Put into your system. I don’t quite understand which MB modules will run.

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

CPU-Z reports the following system specs: I had them up to 1. DDR memory is not backwards compatible.

If you use three or less modules, usually registered memory isn’t required, and you shouldn’t buy it – it is more expensive and slower. The author of the page is not responsible for the correctness of the information on this page.

Where can I find even more information about the bx chipset? Each chip has mbit and all 8 chip form one bank – to the chipset this looks almost the same as 2. Buffered modules are similar, but instead of registers, they contain buffers, the difference is that a register is clocked, and a buffer is not.
