Memory question

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Jerry Cargile, Mar 10, 2009.

  1. I have an old BE6 board that I want set up for the kids to mess around
    on. The trouble is that it's so slow. I want to put two 512mb sticks
    in it, but the manual says that 256 is the maximum. I have flashed the
    bios which will let me put an 800 Celeron in it to replace the 400, but
    I can't see any information in the bios upgrade history pertaining to
    memory. question is, if I go ahead and buy the 512 sticks and
    it ends up that the memory maximum wasn't increased like the cpu was,
    will the system just reject the memory from the start, or will it just
    load the 256 limit?

    I appreciate any feedback to this question.

    I guess the most obvious question is, why would you do this to
    your kids? :)

    Seriously, for a few dollars (probably less than you're going to
    pay for two 512mb memory sticks) you can pick up a used
    system from Fleabay that's 20x faster than a BE6, and it'll
    actually be useful and some fun for your family.

    But to answer your question:

    You are right, I have been searching through the combo sets on Ebay and
    I didn't realize that I could get better boards at cheap prices.

    So, I am forgetting adding anything to this BE6.

    Thanks for the advice and the link, these two things changed my mind on
    upgrading this board.
