Hey y'all!! New here, thanks in advance for the patience. Got a quick question for y'all. My question is this: Does the Phenom 2 (P2) have the same limit as the P1 when it comes to the number of 1066 DDR2 DIMMs per channel? Right now I have a P1 9950 with 1 DIMM of 1066 per channel on my mobo. Each DIMM is 2 gigs, so a total of 4 gigs but I have 2 other slots that could take more DDR2. So I would like to use them for a total of 8 gigs of 1066 DDR2. Does the P2 AM2+ cpu support more than one 1066 DIMM per channel? If not, does the P2 AM3 CPU (i.e. 955) support more than one DIMM per channel of 1066 DDR2? I know that the AM3 P2s are limited when dealing with DDR3 but I haven't found anything in regards to DDR2. Does that make sense? Thanks!! :-)

Oh, and I don't want to take any extreme measures with my RAM, so no overclocking it. My BIOS already supports 1066, so no need to overclock it. I just want to know about the limits on just a CPU basis. :-)

I trust that you are running a 64-bit OS, otherwise the extra RAM (above 4GB) is worthless on a 32-bit system.
