The 184 and 368 traces, 754 and 939 respectively, run directly to the CPU, and devide their clock from it. This is not front side bottleneck (FSB) Intel technology where the memory clock affects the rest of the system. So you can use DDR200 (PC1600), DDR266 (PC2100), DDR333 (PC2700) and DDR400 (PC3200). The only issue I've seen is maybe the number of DIMMs you can use. JEDEC specs specify 3 DIMMs per DDR200 channel, 2 DIMMs per DDR266/333 channel and 1 DIMM per DDR400 channel.and video card to the Asrock.Now that's one of the neat designs of the ULI M1695/1567. They have a _true_, _segmented_ AGP 3.0** slot, whereas some of the other chipset/cheap designs just connect the AGP to the shared, 32-bit PCI bus. That's in addition to the PCIe x16 option. [ **NOTE: It must be newer 1.5/0.8V AGP x4/8 card. You can't use older 3.3V AGP x1/2/4 cards. ] Of course, I don't know how well the peripherals of the ULI M1567 are, so be _wary_ of possible Linux compatibility issues.
I stand corrected over the memory, then. I've also changed my 3-pin PLED connector to a 2 pin configuration as suggested earlier simply by pulling one pin out and putting it in the middle position of the connector shell. I hadn't realized one can do that. Now my power LED works. I'm starting to wonder how to crimp those little connectors for other electronics projects.
