Dual Channel With RAM Question!

Simply adding more RAM does not always improve performance, and in some cases can reduce performance. What about the remaining spaces? All the new motherboard support 4 GB of RAM in each slot.

I didn't realize that any AMD systems could do that, but oh well I guess you really do learn something every day ...BTW you said "duel" again, haha you're RAM sticks yes, i know that my celeron can adjust the ram at 1066 ghz and my windows xp x86 can see less tha 3.5 gb or ram as far i know my Please post the model # of the modules you purchased...or a link to specs for same.

  1. Krishan K Khichar, Computer Hardware BuffWritten 74w agoAll DDR3 motherboards support 4GB module per slot so don’t worry about it also you can always use a single RAM module in Dual
  2. Dual channel mode simply needs two sticks of the same size.
  3. a very good idea !
  4. I have 3 sticks of identical RAM and they're run in duel channel..... 1.5 gigs....

I have an MSI K7N2 Delta 2 Platinum. Vaynard: I beleive I answered your question above. i knew that certain Intel chipsets could run uneven amounts of RAM in dual channel, but I didn't know that any AMD systems could do it as well. And how do I check to see if I'm running dual channel?Game-Guru No, it won't work, regardless of configuration.

Your RAM needs to match in single side/double side configuration for dual channel to work. People say it's not noticeable, but with DDR1, I configured my computer to single channel and same RAM, only to notice performance had indeed dropped. basically the lower the number = the faster the RAM.

What about the remaining spaces? here r the numbers i could find on the ones it came with Samsung 1gig PC3200U CL3 30331-EO CNM368l2923CUN-CCC New ones i put in Kingston 512 KVR400/512CR Kingston 512 KVR400X64C3A/512 the on single core systems, the increased bandwidth of dual channel doesn't give much performance boost, but a dual core system can utilize it much better so it does indeed boost performance

you are probably not even utilizing the 2GB now, nevermind another 512 3. seseorang View Public Profile Search User Find More Posts by seseorang Find Threads by seseorang 08-17-2012, 05:38 AM #5 Griker Join Date: Dec 2008 Reputation: 25 Posts: 480 Quote: May 16, 2006 #12 Tedster Techspot old timer.....

Login now. For example 2x2gb in one bank and 2x1gb in the other will still work in dual channel.
