Help pick memory plz=)


Recommended Posts

Hi i have an Asus Rampage formula running with an E8400 and Windows XP pro 32Bit.

I would like to use 4GB of memory on it , i know that windows xp 32Bit will not take advantage of all 4GB but will it cause problems ?

Also do i need 2 modules of 2GB each or can i run 4 modules of 1GB each?

Because i already have 4 modules ( old dominators 800MHZ and can't find 4GB of them anymore i wish i could) but i rember reading that it's best to run dual channel? I believe meaning 2 modules of 2gb each?


Also need help to pick the right RAM and keep in mind i will not be overcloaking everythign will be at stock speed.

wich ones from this?


1) CGMT2X4G800 Whats the latency and voltage on this modules i couldn't find it.


2) TWIN2X4096-6400C5C


3) TWIN2X4096-6400C5


Thanks for help in advanced.

Never seen the first one. I'd guess its timings are 5-5-5-18.


1. 4 GB won't blow up XP or anything.

2. ALWAYS go for a smaller # of sticks.

3. There is no such thing as Dual Channel memory, as this is a property of the memory controller in how it handles memory. This is why you can place memory in different slot configurations on a motherboard and it will register as single or dual channel.
