TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX and CM2X1024-6400C5


Recommended Posts

Apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere... I can't locate anything applicable.


I currently have an ASUS M2NPV-VM motherboard with 2 matched CM2X1024-6400C5 modules working happily in dual channel mode at 5-5-5-18.


I want to bump it up to 4GB and have found a good deal on two matched CM2X1024-6400C4DHX modules. As far as I'm aware these two DHX modules should work happily at 5-5-5-18 as well even though they are rated for 4-4-4-12. My question is whether the system as a whole will keep working in dual channel mode if I add these two similar but not the same (as my current) modules? My motherboard manual states that it will keep working in dual channel mode as long as the total memory installed in each channel is the same. I'm pretty sure that in reality it's a lot finickier than that. ;D


My guess is that these DHX modules are more or less the same thing as the C5 non-DHX ones I have, just with fancier heat-spreaders and perhaps meet higher timing tolerances.


Any ideas Ramguy? :D


Thanks in advance.
