Abit Ic7-g

Recommended Posts

I just ordered my Abit IC7-G. Now, the specs for the board say it can handle up to PC3200 RAM, but I've read of some guys running PC3500 Kingston memory on this board. Is it possible?? I've e-mailed Abit, but haven't gotten a response from them yet. I need to order my new RAM, but don't know whether to go with PC3200 or the PC3500.

Yes it will run PC3500. I would recommend you actually get PC3700, it will run that too.

PC3200 is the highest it OFFICALLY supports, but any DDR module with the right number of pins will run in it. The faster the RAM you put in it, the higher FSBs you will be able to attain.

when you overclock your ram speed goes up. stock ram settings would be fore 3200. in otherwords you're giving your ram room to go when oc'n

i think xpandapuss was just pointing out that the motherboard manufaturers don't "official" support PC3500 and up. xpandapuss knows that you can run memory at higher frequencies. xpandapuss has a PC3500 memory module listed in sig.

Thanks for all the replies guys, I got the comp up and running last night so I haven't been on all weekend. I ended up getting (2) Kingston HyperX DDR PC4000 512MB. It runs great and is awesome. I called Abit before I ordered the RAM, they said that they KNOW their boards will support 500MHz RAM and that they were getting ready to start announcing the news. Once again thanks for all the help.

 

BTW: In case your wondering, I'm running a P4 3.0GHz 800MHz HT processor with the Abit IC7-G and the Kingston HyperX PC4000. If anyone wants more details just let me know.
