You may install 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB unbuffered ECC / non-ECC
DDR2 DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory confgurations in this
section.
Recommended Memory Confgurations
Sockets
Mode DIMM_A1 DIMM_B1
Single-Channel
Populated
Populated
Dual-channel Populated Populated
You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A and Channel B. The
system maps the total size of the lower-sized channel for the dual-channel
confguration. Any excess memory from the higher-sized channel is then
mapped for single-channel operation.
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum compatibility,
it is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor.
If you install two 2GB memory modules, the system may only recognize less
than 3GB because the address space is reserved for other critical functions.
This limitation appears on Windows

XP 32-bit operation system which does


not support Physical Address Extension (PAE).
If you install Windows

XP 32-bit operation system, a total memory of less


than 3GB is recommended.
