DDR3 and DDR2 coincide on same motherboard?





taytay
So I'm lookin as some motherboards for a computer I am making my sister. I've stumbled upon some confusion.

I have found an Intel mobo with 2xDDR3 slots, and 4xDDR2 slots. 6 slots total. the manufacture website says the 2 DDR3's can have 8Gigs total, and the 4 DDR2's can have 16Gb total. That said, if I were to buy 2x2Gig Sticks of DDR3, and 4x2Gig sticks of DDR2, would I be able have them all in, giving me 12Gigs total of memory?? Or can I ONLY use DDR3 OR DDR2?

I am so confused. If I Can have 12Gigs, even if they all aren't DDR3, it would be an interesting solution for massive RAM in this build.

Here's the Mobo if you're wondering http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P45TS

as they wrote down in asterix..

*DDR3 and DDR2 are supported separately.

NO part-part solution possible with ddr2 and ddr3 after all. But it can be overclocked when you use
the option wisely and its having the "-R" inside the mainboard. The P45TS-R can be enabled with monsteroverclocking look here:
