Hi guys, this is my 1st post so please bear with me.

Currently I have 1x 4gb DDR3 12800 ram seat in the 1st slot (Total 4 slots). A friend of wanted to sell me his 4gb DDR3 12800 ram kit (2x 2gb). So will I be able to achieve dual channel mode? If no, will I really notice the different? Thanks in advance....

Best solution

It wont run in dual channel mode, but you probably wont notice as your not getting dual channel now with only 1 stick. I assume your os is 64 bit.
