Non C5 with C5


Recommended Posts

My PC Specs are listed below. I want to confirm that is alright to run non C5 memory with C5 memory. And what is the difference between the 2?


Thanks for any help here.



Core 2 Duo E6850

TWIN2X2048-6400 800mhz and TWIN2X4096-6400C5 800mhz

GeForce 8800GTS 320mb

Vista 64 bit

I am sorry but we officially do not support mixing memory even if they are the same part number it is still mixing two sets. The tested settings that are printed on the modules lable would only be for how they are sold IE as one set. You are welcome to try them but I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR667 and set the memory Voltage to 2.0 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.
