FT1400 (N440BX motherboard) - Memory Upgrades

Use only 100MHz PC/100 compliant SDRAM type 72 bit (64 bit + ECC) DIMMs. They can be either 'registered' or 'unbuffered' but it is important that the types must not be mixed. Non ECC memory maybe installed but is not recommended. Mixing Non-ECC memory and ECC memory causes all ECC features to be disabled.

Unbuffered DIMMs range from 16Mb to 128Mb giving a possible total of 512Mb, while registered DIMMs range from 64Mb to 256Mb giving a possible total of up to 1Gb of main memory.

The controller will check and initialise the memory array depending on the type, size and speed of the installed DIMMs and will report it back to the system configuration registers.

For signal integrity reasons the DIMMs should be installed in the DIMM 1 to DIMM 4 sockets in that order. Always use DIMMs that have been tested and approved, contact your Mitsubishi Electric PC supplier.

Dual address strobe (RAS) signals are provided for each DIMM. When single-banked DIMMs are used, one of the RAS lines is connected to both 36-bit 'halves' of the DIMM. When double-banked DIMMs are used (known as Dual RAS), both RAS lines are conected to two 36-bit 'quarters' of the DIMM.
