streetskater Posted December 6, 2005 Share Posted December 6, 2005 I have an ASUS K8V-X which has 3 DIMM sockets. I've been using 2 sticks of 512 DDR400 PC3200 memory--and everything benchmarks accordingly. The Problem: I bought a 1gig DIMM to up my total RAM to 2gig So now it's: DIMM1: Corsair VS512MB400 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) DIMM2: Corsair VS512MB400 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) DIMM3: Corsair VS1GB400C3 1 GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) Performance: Everything benches at PC1600 level and the computer is in fact slow as Cold Molasses. I expected to take a slight hit because of the 3.0 Latency of that 1 Gig DIMM but these 3 DIMS combined are benchmarking at slow PC1600 level. Just the 1 Gig by itself or just the 2 512 sticks by themselve--bench in the high PC3200 range--as I would expect. Is this a problem with mixing the 1gig & 512mg DIMMS together on this particular mobo? Edited to add: Sorry RamGuy --this might not be the best subsection for this post...It's here now:-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
