wong638 Posted December 16, 2005 Share Posted December 16, 2005 Hi, I need some advice on RAM. My motherboard is Asus A8N-sli Deluxe. Currently I have 1 stick of 512MB Corsair Value Select. I wish to upgrade my RAM but I am not sure it is going to work later. Option 1: 512MB I am planning to buy 1 new Corsair Value Select 512MB, so it can pair up with my existing RAM and enable to run at Dual Channel. Now my question is, is there any compatibility issues in Corsair Value Select RAM? Because usually there are difference in RAM because they use difference chips or etc... so is it ok if I buy a new 512MB and pair with my existing 1? Option 2: 1GB I also planning to get a new 1GB Corsair Value Select but I am not sure it will running with my existing 512MB or not. I also try to get some infomation from the Corsair RAM Guy, some of the forumer there suggest to install both ram in different channel. Example like 512MB x 2 install in Channel A then 1GB x 1 install in Channel B. So both running at 1GB in different channel. But the problem is I am getting 512MB x 1 and 1GB x 1, so there is different in total RAM. I am not sure it will working or not even if I am able to install in different channel later. Can anyone helping me out??? By the way, anyone would like to suggest me to get 1GB or 512MB now. Is it better to get 512MB and run at dual channel or just get the 1GB now and running at 1.5GB. I also notice there are similar case but the forumer not use the same motherboard like mine. [http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46140 "I have a Shuttle XPC with a VS512MB400C in it. I just purchased a new stick VS1GB400C3. With either stick, PC boots fine. When both sticks are installed, PC won't boot."] Then I refer to "How to read the memory label!" I found that the value select only have serial number and lot code http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38145 So, I should get a new memory with the same serial number or lot code? If I planning to get a 512MB value select Thanks for your help :): Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
