mixing two memory kits of the same type


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm very new to placing RAMs and general computer construction.


But from what I've read, placing two different kits into a motherboard is usually a bad idea (for example a 512mb kit with a 1024mb kit).


But what if I decide to get two of 2X2GB kits of the same type (making them 4x2GB kit) together? Would that still be good?


I have an old EP45-DS3 motherboard, and as much as I tried to search, corsair only has 2x2GB as the highest capacity one. Would putting two of these kits, making it an 8GB memory, be safe? I just want to make sure.

I am sorry but mixing memory is not suggested, but you are welcome to try and see. I would suggest setting the memory frequency to the next slower speed grade though DDR667 for example if its DDR2
