Another question, by running 4x512mb sticks of ram (pc3200), does that decrease the frequency from 400mhz to 333mhz so that the ram is stable?? thats what i have heard... thanks
Running a 4x512 ram setup will limit the ram to a 2T setting. Running a 2x1 gig setup will allow a 1T setting, thus speeding up the ram considerably. There is no decrease in frequency from 400 mhz to 333 mhz because of running 4x512 sticks. The speed drops occur when you are overclocking, though some ram types will allow up to a 10% overclock before throttling back. Check the website of your ram company for specifics on this.
