Default ASUS M2N68LA memory slot mod?

Ok, I picked up a junky sempron box yesterday, I was looking at it, and it looks like it had 4 dimm slots with 2 ripped out.

I was wondering If I could unsolder a ddr2 dimm slot from a dead motherboard and resolder it to the empty place where it would have gone on this motherboard.

This is what my motherboard is:


This is another version of my board, that has all 4 dimm slots:


That'd be cool if anyone found out if you can do it or not, thanks

You probably can, but theres various other things that'd need to be changed, BIOS firmware, adding capacitors, could be a nice project, but practically probably not viable

EDIT: It'd probably use the firmware from the version of the board in which the ONLY difference is the RAM Slots.

I looked at the board closely, there are the little line thingys going from the 1st 2 dimms to the chipset, but not the 3rd and 4th.

on the 4 lane models, there are lines from all 4.

so iguess not, thanks for u guys help
