It's possible if the modules are the same fab and version. You are advised to drop the bandwidth though.


Please research this thread:




The issue is the memory controller and a population of all four banks at the full speed of a two bank run. This issue is across the board with both Nvidia and Intel chipset based boards.


Keep in mind that often issues arise in the longer term. The issues seldom damage the DRAM. They damage the on motherboard memory controller which has a harder time keeping up with the demands of a four DRAM slot population being run as fast as a two DRAM slot population. Those who want to be secure in their system either purchase a single kit of the DRAM capacity that the four singles have or they move to a higher bandwidth DRAM and drop the bandwidth, which is what RAM GUY is advising. I also advise it as I have personally seen the issues that can and often do arise with a four DRAM slot population running at the full speed of a single kit speed.


You are now informed as to the possible issues that can and often do arise when you run a system with two kits of DRAM as fast as a single kit. Also, keep in mind, that there is no support from the motherboard manufacturers for a full bore population of four DRAM slots.


Also, I repeat, keep in mind that if you are mixing and matching different fabbed version of the modules. It is never advised, nor is it supported to mix and match DRAM versions.
