Dual Channel with 4 dimm Motherboard


Recommended Posts

I am currently using Abit NF7-S rev2.0


Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PRO 1GB Kit DDR400 XMS3200

in system.


Thinking about upgrading to 2GB for gaming for now, and here is list of candidates:


Corsair TWINX2048-3200 2GB DDR400 XMS3200



Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2 2GB Kit DDR400 XMS3200



Corsair TWINX2048-3200PRO 2048MB DDR400 XMS3200 ProSeries



Which one is the better than others?

Supposingly TWINX2048-3200C2?


Also I would like this 2GB memory work for my future PC too.

I'm not sure how difference size of Dual channel DDR work in 4 dimm configuration, but wonder if 2GB + 1GB configuration work on system in my future system.


As for example,

If I picked


MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI


for my motherboard (just as example);


Dimm1-2 Twinx 2GB

Dimm3-4 Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PRO 1GB Kit DDR400 XMS3200


Will this 3GB DDR system configuration work as Dual channel?

I would not suggest mixing these modules, if you do the system will default to DDR333. Twinx2048-3200C2 would be the best choice but you would want to use 2 modules only for best performance.
