There is no guarantee that this will work.

 

Worst case scenerio?

 

An RMA of the motherboard to the manufacturer due to a memory controller that will not accept such a population at all.

 

Best case scenerio?

 

Your system accepts the DRAM and works fine with it.

 

Corsair has no support for a four DRAM slot population of its 2 module kits. For support in such a population you would have to go with a Quad kit and even then you may have issues that are motherboard related and that will need to be addressed at the motherboard manufacturer level.

 

Just look at any DRAM forum and see the issues of a four slot solution. Many, many people have issues.

 

Please research this thread:

There is a limitation of the On Motherboard (Intel) memory controller and a population of all four banks at the full speed of a two bank run. This limitation is across the board with both AMD and Intel chipset based boards, DDR, DDR2 and DDR3.
