I did not know that you could run 8GB (2x4GB) with Windows 7, 32 bit.! I have to rethink a lot of things. We both enjoy low powered, quiet, computers with SSDs for hard drives.

You can run as much memory as you want (with respect to the limitations of the mobo), a 32-bit system will only recognize a little more than 3Gb of that though. I think it's 3.5 or 3.8 gigs.
So yes, you can run with 8Gb, is it worth it? Probably not since the system will not utilize all of it. If you DO have 2x4GB sticks running in dual channel mode you can expect a performance boost from the increased read/write speeds, so from that regard it's not worth running just one stick of 4GB either.... if you have it.

With memory prices dropping all the time there really is no reason to run a 32-bit system anymore.

211, I do not completely understand memory board configurations.
The Crucial CT2kit12864BA1339.4FR (2x1GB) did not work for me. whereas the .8FF did.
RichRich146 used 2x4GB with Win7 32 bit and it worked fine after an RMA and replacement of the E35M1-I MB. But his Kingston DDR3 must have been configured correctly. OK on Win7 64bit. I have to look for a copy. I use "FREE" software when available.:)

Win7 64bit

hey all,

having read this threat helped me not going nuts on my asus e35m1 deluxe board, so i wanted to thank you and add my solution to the problem.

having experienced the same memory trouble by using both slots (corsair xms3 2x 2gb), but not by using a single one, i contacted asus support (germany) and they told me to update the bios to version 1305 via ez flash 2.

just completed the update and re-started using both slots - everything works just fine now :)

best, wicked

There's a BIOS update for this board that addresses this very issue.

Improve memory compatibility.

ASUS P6T Deluxe
Thought I'd share a little bit of info I picked up while settings up Seven on my new rig. Found that the driver CD that comes with the motherboard doesn't work off the bat. Autoplay doesn't like Seven for whatever reason, so what I ended up doing was browsing the CD and running the setup...
