Gigabyte motherboard. Model Type GA-686BX

  1. Hi,
    I've got an old Gigabyte motherboard. Model Type GA-686BX. The system bus
    speed is set to 100MHZ. Can I utilise a PC133 256MB memory on this type of
    motherboard. I have haerd from friends that the bios will only recognise
    128MB!

    Can anyone help with this query. Thanks in advance.

    Mitch

    From my own (limited) experience I suspect the PC133 RAM will work as I have
    done similar things myself, though you may have to update the BIOS. If you
    have to buy RAM, it is still possible to buy PC100 RAM (and PC66) from
    Crucial.
