pc4000 in with pc3200 on DFI SLI-DR

Recommended Posts

Im not very expert with these things but I have an extra 2x1GB sticks of GSKILL DDR400 PC3200 1GB, and am trying to add them in to my DFI mobo that already has PC4000 DDR500 memory, for a total of 4GB. See my signature below. Is this something that should work? I tried increasing the DRAM voltage to 3.0 but it was not working. I had to clear CMOS to reboot again.

 

The PC4000 is in the orange slots and was trying the PC3200 in the yellow slots.

 

thanks for any advice.

um, just off the top of my head......no it won't work.

 

first of all, running with four sticks of matched ram may not work in the DFI, so trying to run with mismatched sticks is a recipe for a big no way Jose.....

 

what is it you do that requires 4 gigs of ram????

 

even if you acquired another 2 gigs of either ramski (exactly the same stuffs, PCB and chips), the DFI would more than likely balk. you have much better chance if running @default speeds, but even then is can be frustrating.

 

laterz,

I tried running four sticks of mismatched RAM and as bldegle2 said, it was frustrating. It booted some times but only saw 1/2 of the RAM.

 

I have it up and running with 4x512Mb at the moment but I had to RMA 2 sticks of the Ballistix because they developed errors.

 

I have yet to create a OCDB entry due to (the lack of) time and patience.
