View Full Version : motherboard help

I recently bought the SOYO KT400 motherboard and I was just wondering if I have to buy the specific memory modules on their site (http://www.soyousa.com./kb/kbdesc.php?id=73), or can I buy another brand?

No, you can buy similar ones of a different make etc. but compatibility is not guaranteed by the mobo manufacturer.

This shouldn't matter however, the only time i have ever had such a compatibility problem was trying to use samsung DDR333 in my 8RDA+, it wasn't stable and i was later informed of the compatibility issue by a employee at the store who replaced it with an equivelant stick (a very overclockable one!:D )

So basically, it should be taken as a reccomendation, you don't have to follow it, but compatibility issues may occur (most likely not).
