Specs: windows 10 x64
Im building a machine out of used parts Ive had laying around. The cpu being used is a Sempron 140, the motherboard is a Gigabyte 970 Gaming.

My question is what speed of ddr3 is best suited for a Sempron 140? Will not be overclocking.

✔ Best Answer
The memory controller supports DDR2-800 or DDR3-1066 but it certainly wouldn't hurt to get DDR3-1600. Also, it would be a shame not to overclock. It will easily do over 3.0GHz without breaking a sweat... it's a 45W CPU so it runs cool. Many will unlock to a dual core too. You have nothing to lose & plenty to gain.

Thanks for your advice riider. I will use ddr3 1600, and will attempt to unlock the second core if bios settings allow.
