DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-D Memory Upgrade Question

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

Yup i'm still in the s939 days, the x2 4200+ @ 2.7Ghz is still serving me well with what I do.

What I do want is some upgrade though... I will start first with memory..then maybe a vidcard...

 

I currently have 2x 512MB (1 GIG) of Corsair PC3200XL ,some really good memory.

I want another gig and since I know that the DFI mobo doesn't like mixed up ram I am wondering how the following will pair up with the corsair and if it's a good idea. Which will be then 4x512mb = 2 Gigs

 

Please advice guys.

Thanks!!

It would be quicker and easier way would be to just grab yourself 2X1g sticks, you can do 4x512 but it might take some work to get that o/c and stable again

anything but value ram remember with the 939 setups Mhz is king solong as you can use a divider you'll be fine but any of the name brands would be fine ocz, mushkin, gskill etc.

have a look through the ocdb here and see whats giving good results.

you should be able to pick some up fairly cheap too

A big consideration is whether you plan to overclock or not, which will determine whether you want to run PC3200 or PC4000.

 

Depending on what speed RAM you want to run, here are some recommendations;

I plan on OC'ing ... am currently @ 2.7 Ghz ...(from x2 4200+)
