4 x 512MB or 2 x 1GB corsair value select

Recommended Posts



I want to go for 2 GB Corsair Value select.


The 512 MB timings are 2.5-3-3-8

and 1GB timings are 3-3-3-8.


It seems that the 512MB will be slightly faster.

Should I go for 4 x 512MB dimms or 2 x 1GB DIMMS.


Does having 4 dimms have any impact on data fetch?

How much will be the performance impact in case of 1GB DIMMs

Running the ram in dual channel mode is dictated by which slots on your board you place them in, need to check your board's manual for the correct dual channel mode slots to place them in. The two 1gig sticks will run at a command rate of 1T as long as they're a matched set/2gig kit.
