Can I use 2 sticks of a 6GB (3x2GB) kit in a dual channel system?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm looking to buy some Corsair Dominator memory to replace my under-performing Patriot memory in my current C2D setup. I'm currently running 2GB of DDR3 in an EVGA 790i board with a C2D E8400 processor, but also considering upgrading to an i7 based system.


I'd like to buy the 6GB (3x2GB) Dominator kit to prepare for the i7, but can I use 2 of the 3 sticks in my current C2D system until I'm ready to go with the i7? I'm assuming the 3x2 6GB DDR3 Dominator kits are essentially the same memory but with one extra 2GB stick over the 2x2 4GB DDR3 Dominator kit... am I wrong? Could there be issues with doing this? Thanks for the help.
