jgstew Posted January 13, 2006 Share Posted January 13, 2006 I have an ABIT-IC7 dual-channel motherboard, and 2xCMX256A-3200C2PT in dual channel configuration, which works flawlessly. I recently added VS1GBKIT400 so that the two 512mb sticks would be in a matched pair dual channel configuration along side the 2xCMX256A-3200C2PT. Memtest86+ revealed no errors. WindowsXP booted fine, and showed all 4 sticks running and at VS1GBKIT400's slightly slower latency. Everything seemed to work OK, but I turned of the hard drive virtual memory page file, and loaded up the ram, I got memory read errors and strange behavior of my system. I have since removed the 2xCMX256A-3200C2PT and have been running fine ever since. Do all 4 sticks need to be matched for everything to run ok? or should there be a way to have all 4 of what i have in 2 different sets of matched pairs? or are my errors due to turning off the page file? (i assume if i turn it back on and try loading up the memory in the same way i will get the same errors, but i dont know) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
