Upgrading: Adding CMX512 3200-C2 to Existing 1G matched pair

Hi, I am thinking of adding the CMX512 PC3200-C2 to my existing TWINX1024-PC3200 C2. However when I first purchased my RAM last Fall, it was rated for 6-3-3-2 even for AMD. This year I have noticed the C2 modules are rated for 2.5 for AMD and 2.0 for Intel. I am currently running the pair in Dual Channel in A7N8X Non-Deluxe 2.0 at 11-3-3-2 timings. Will run ok with 6-3-3-2 also all at 200/400 FSB. PERFECTLY STABLE. Is it ok to go ahead and add this extra 512M and be able to still run Cas 2? I know I'll lose my dual channel performance mode but could use the extra ram. What I don't want is to lose my timings or lose my 400 FSB. Thanks,

Maybe and maybe not! I would make sure they are all the same revision, and if so just try the system with [url]www.memtest.org[/url] to make sure it's stable! However, the suggested settings would be Cass 2.5-3-3-7 with more that one single module or more than one Twinx set!
