Motherboard that takes DDR ram only

Postby taylorow » Tue Oct 20, 2015 11:48 am

Hello,
I'm a student and have a project with a budget. I'm looking for a place/website I could buy a motherboard that only takes DDR ram. Not DDR2, 3, 4, or 5 ram.

I know these are old motherboards but I'm unable to find what I'm looking for anywhere. Also, this motherboard needs DDR ram, SATA connections, and socket for a quad core cpu.

I'm hoping the great minds here know of websites where I can find what I'm looking for!

Thanks
all responses apprecitated

Welcome to Motherboards.org.
"Plain" older DDR memory is still around, but not all that popular. Same too the motherboards. You are looking at Socket 370 and early Socket 478 models, plus older AMD motherboards.
Perhaps surfing eBay in their computers category may turn up something worth the investment. But don't look to run Win 7 or newer OS type on it.. compatibility problems. But great for a Linux setup.
A caution on eBay purchases: Check the seller's feedback amount and good rating.. the higher, the better. And look for some sort of warranty on electronic items.
As to a SATA drive, unlikely an older motherboard would host that type hard drive. But there are PCI controller cards that can be used for SATA drives on older systems.

Karl I think U r mistaking the idea, he must be talkimg about what we call it DDR-1 made up to 400MHz and used in lates Socket 478 and early socket 775 mobos

I have a couple of them still in use, both intel D101GCC, that feature all he wants except quad core support

I think there is no motheboards that uses DDR1 and support Quad Core CPU´s the higher I know is Dual Core Support

That note about a "quad-core" CPU I missed! My bad. :oops:
When you have a head cold, the mind is AWOL a bit.
Something in a late Socket 478 or 775 (or later) may be the choice. SATA and DDR RAM features. But better if having PCI-E video than AGP.

take a look at:

I don´t know if it is still available, but seems to be that U want

tell me if I'm wrong, but A) socket 478 never had quad-core cpu's!
B) you'd be VERY hard pressed to find a socket 775 mobo with ddr1 ram slots.
you'd be better off finding a new platform than building your system around decade-old memory! modern ram is dirt cheap these days!

VIA® PT880 Pro/PT880 Ultra Chipsets support both DDR and DDR2 memory + LGA775 QuadCore chips.

The Asrock is an example, I think with some digging we might find more boards (not too many ofcourse). Sounds like a project to find out the difference between the kinds of memory or even a testbed for used memory to see what is still good enough for resale...

Issue is it wont support a quad core CPU on DDR1, tried and failed with that one! However HT is supported...

Mr T, you as expert on trying to make any hardware work, have you ever made a QuadCore work together with DRR1 memory on any board?
