Hi all,

Got an Asrock k7s8x mobo which has 3 ram slot's, I've got 2 stick's of 128mb
pc2100 both the same brand and also 1 stick of 512mb pc2100(IBM brand),
what's the best way to position these?, first slot the 512 then both the
128's, does it matter?.


TIA

Ellis

Doesn't matter. But since you're mixing and matching, be sure to test
your memory thoroughly.

Try a slower CAS latency - in the memory timing BIOS screen change the
memory settings to manual instead of 'by SPD' and set the CAS to 2.5 if it's
on 2 for example. You could try generally slacker memory timings. Also
whilst there you could set bank interleave to 4-way for better performance.
Warning - if try faster memory timings than your RAM can cope with you could
end up with a non-booting PC (but resetting the BIOS will get you out of it)

Thank's for the help Graham, I put the 512 stick in the first slot then
followed by the 2 128's and it came up with no more error's, weried aye.
