1GB/2GB TWIN2X kit compatibility

Recommended Posts

Hi RAM GUY et al,


I've been unable to run the TWIN2X2048-C5D and TWIN2X1024-C5D kits together on neither an ASUS P5Q nor the Gigabyte EP45-UD3R.


The Asus P5Q seems to restart at random while I play 3D games or watch YouTube videos.


The Gigabyte EP45-UD3R is more stable in games, however if I attempt to enter sleep mode or try to shutdown the machine, I end up in an endless reboot loop where the system powers on and off. The only remedy is to remove the power chord from the PSU, give it a few seconds, plug it back in and power on the PC.


I've posted the latter issue on the TweakTown forum here:




Lsdmeasap suggested that I post this issue here to confirm that the two kits are compatible with one another. Can you confirm?


Thanks in advance!

Since they're different densities and different ICs, not to mention they haven't been sold together (and 4 sticks is maxing out the memory controller), there's no guarantee that they will work together. Could try lowering the mem speed, see if that helps.
