If you look at the pcpartpicker link you provided there is a link to builds that included it; in that list are dozens of builds that included Vishera CPUs; so it's a complete non-issue. With that said, some of the top end Vishera CPUs do require specific 990Fx chipsets (9000 series), but the FX-8300 you are looking at is not in this group, and will be 100% ...

Compaq Presario SR1222NX will support only 4 GB ( 2 x 2 GB) despite what the chipset can support. The memory controller can hold up to 2 GB on each of the two slots. 8 GB is not possible with your system even with 64 Bit OS.

32 bit systems have supported more than 4 GB of RAM for well over a decade, through the use of PAE. That said, the specs say that your computer's maximum supported memory capacity is 4 GB, so it's 4GB, and what the chipset supports doesn't much matter. It might be a BIOS limitation, it might be that the system board only supports a maximum DIMM size of ...

The chipset supports some 64 bit chips, and if you had a 64 bit capable chip you certainly could. This chipset's around the time intel made the transition, and from checking a random sampling many of the chips it supports are 64 bit. However at the time the system was released, 64 bit windows wasn't really a thing. I suspect most systems ran xp, and 64 bit ...

I did it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHrsgo20EbE Main reason to make this video: I answered on question about possibility to install Core i7 processor and 16Gb of RAM on old chipset Intel HM55 Express Before Upgrade this laptop have such specs: Chipset: Intel HM55 Express Processor: Intel Core i3 370M 2.4 GHz Cache 3 MB HDD 500Gb Video: ATI Mobility ...

It is true that for the AM2 chipset (DDR2) and early on in the AM3 (DDR3) chipset era, AMD supported higher density RAM than Intel did. Intel started supporting the higher density RAM, but I can't find the exact chipset on which it was introduced. Essentially AMD provided an additional physical address line per RAM page (11 vs. std 10) which doubles the ...
