Mix and match Memory


JPicasso

Recommended Posts

I have an Asus 7N8X (I think that's right)

with a stick of 512 PC3200 made by a diff manufaturer (starts with G)

I recently bought a stick of Corsair 1GB value select.

 

Both sticks work independently, obviously, the 1Gb is better,

but is there a way to get them to work together? The computer

resets somewhere during windows load, the bios check seems to be fine.

 

I guess in the general sense, is this a case of don't mix memory sizes (512 and 1024)

or is this more along the lines of different mandufacturers, probably different timings, etc?

 

What's my options?

Fixed it.

the MOBO has two memory slots physically close to each other and another slot for any red-headed step children. I put the diff brand 512 off to the side.

 

Not 100% sure if I'm actually utilizing the 512 stick, but I get 1.5 on the bios mem check.

 

In any case, performace enhancement is noticable.
