2x Dual Channel , 4 Dimms


Recommended Posts

hi,

 

My mobo has 4 dimm slots, which are 2 pairs of dual channel: slot 1 & 3 dual channle and slot 2&4 dual channel. At the moment i run 2x 512mb pc 3200 in slots 1&3. I'm planning an upgrade towards 2 gb. Now i have an oportunity to buy 2 dimms of 512mb pc 4200. will it work with my current 2 x512 pc3200? i would setup it up as follows: slot 1&3 512mbpc3200 (x2) in dualchannel and slots 2&4 512mb pc4200(x2) in dualchannel. Will this work?

It should work, but you will need to run at the worst timings and speed that both sets can run at. You should manually configure the speed, timings, and voltage before installing the new memory.

why at pc2700 speeds and not at pc3200 which would be the lowest type. Nonetheless, the pc4200 got sold under my nose, so i'll get pc3200, this''l make 4 dimms of pc3200, which i think i'll be able to run at pc3200, am i right?

I thought 875 boards can do 4 DIMMS at PC3200. I can't remember for sure.

As long as everything in channel one matches channel two i think it's supposed to work aka even 512mb in slot 1, 256mb in 2, 512 in 3, 256 in 4. I think that even that will work as long as you have 768mb @ one speed in channel 1 and 768mb at the same speed in channel 2.

 

Anyway i dont think it matters if they are single or double sided, as long as both sticks you put in are the same.
