basic question


Recommended Posts



I have a striker extreme motherboard with 4 1GB sticks of Dominator RAM. I've been having trouble with my system and with much investigation have determined that 1 of the 4 sticks of RAM is very very unhappy.


So, I've decided to replace one of the pairs. My question is this. I will still have 2 1GB sticks of the onld RAM and I'm considering adding 2 moresticks, but of 2 GB each (since its only about £20 more than the 1 GB sticks these days) to give me a total of 6GB. Will it work in DDR2 mode with this configuration, can I have different RAM sizes in the different channels. Are there any issues with doing that.

I would not suggest mixing memory it would be best to just use the 4 Gig set, but if you do add 2 more modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR667 and set the memory Voltage to 2.1 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.2 Volts as well and test the system with http://www.memtest.org. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
