  1. Which motherboard are you using? In a dual/triple channel memory system, always buy memory in MATCHED sets of 2/3 for best results and less problems. Timing, voltage, date of manufacture, brand, etc is very important to assure trouble free use with dual/triple channel.

    I'd simply go with a 2x4GB set for the full eight, or get a 3x2GB for 6 and hope you can get 2 or 3 of your 1GB sticks to play w/ the 3x2GB....with four sticks already and your CPU being a 1366, should have 6 slots total...the 2x4GB will give you 8 in dual channel...Would suggest 1066 max with your Xeon as far as freq

    Thanks for your advice :) , but why would you suggest 1066 max ? why not 1333 ?

    and please be patient with me , i want to know what is my ram speed right now , i see alot of numbers right there
    i don't know where's the speed :D
    Sorry , and thank you
  4. Right now, in the memory tab, you are showing that you are at 533 which is true freq, this is DDR (Double Data rate) so you are currently running 1066 now
  5. Thanks :) ^_^
