Overview
ThismotherboardcomeswithfourDoubleDataRate4(DDR4)DualInlineMemoryModule
(DIMM)sockets.ADDR4moduleisnotcheddifferentlyfromaDDR,DDR2,orDDR3module.
DONOTinstallaDDR,DDR2,orDDR3memorymoduletotheDDR4slot.
• YoumayinstallvaryingmemorysizesinChannelAandChannelB.Thesystem
mapsthetotalsizeofthelower-sizedchannelforthedual-channelconguration.Any
excessmemoryfromthehigher-sizedchannelisthenmappedforsingle-channel
operation.
• AlwaysinstallDIMMswiththesameCASlatency.Foroptimalcompatibility,we
recommendthatyouinstallmemorymodulesofthesameversionordatecode(D/C)
fromthesamevendor.Checkwiththeretailertogetthecorrectmemorymodules.

ThestabilityandcompatibilityofthesememorymodulesdependontheCPU’s
