    Hey all.

    So I got this new toy today: The VIA Epia NX 1200 and it cost me €90. :D

    The basic plan was to use it as a base to make a mini build inside one of them old phones, but the heatsink is to high. Sad panda is me, but I'll see if I can find some other heatsinks for it that'll fit. I'm not hopeful about it, but there's tons of fun to be had anyway with it. ;)

    Now for a basic question that I hope one of you know the answer to: I have a 1GB DDR2 stick in there, but the board only recognizes half of it. The memory in question is an Adata stick called ADOPE1A08342.

    I've seen other reports on this and I thought it was about density, but it seems like it works for some and not for others.

    I'll see if I can update the BIOS on it and I'll try some other configurations tomorrow, it's actually midnight now. Just wanted some input. What do you think?

    Also, ideas for projects for this beast is welcomed. :)

    Thanks for looking!

    Also the only camera I have is a phone cam which kinda sucks especially when it's dark. I'll see if I can borrow a camera tomorrow and take some shots, the board is beautiful.

    EDIT: Just a small pic to give you a sense of just how small it is:

    It is indeed density problem.
    Try BIOS update.
    However, I think you'll have to get one-sided stick to use the whole memory.

    Frick says thanks.
