Intel’s official specifications dictate that the 815 (G)MCH is capable of accommodating six rows of PC100 memory, but only four rows of PC133 memory. In fact, the MCH is capable of addressing six rows of PC133 as well, but Intel simply doesn’t ‘recommend’ it, as electrical issues can potentially affect stability at 133 MHz. That in mind, loading a board with six rows (3 double-sided DIMMs) is a great way to investigate stability and quality. We’re happy to report that the ST6-RAID breezed through all our tests with six rows of PC133 memory installed. In other words, even when running in conditions outside Intel’s official specifications, the board performed excellently.
The single crash experienced came during the 3DMark2001 installation. At this point, it seemed a random crash, as subsequent 3DMark2001 installs went off without a hitch.
