  • Page 25: System Memory

    Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor. Refer to the DDR2 Qualified Vendors List on the ASUS web site. • Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than 16 GB system memory when you installed eight 2 GB DDR2 memory modules.
