4 x 512 or 2 x 1024 ?


Recommended Posts

I would like to increase the amount of ram in my system. at present i have TWINX1024-3200XL in an Asus a8v delux mb. i have read that having only two slots of memory filled is best for performance but if i go the TWINX2048-3200C2

way i am using higher latency timings. what would you suggest? 4 x 512 or 2 x 1024 ?


with thanks

And system will perform better with 2 modules than it would with 4, and in some cases you may even get better performance with higher latencies with less modules because of some of the bios performance options that would need to be relaxed with 4 modules. So yes go with 2-1.0 Gig modules for best performance.
