I recently bought another 2GB of RAM to make up 4GB. The RAM I purchased was not the same as the RAM I already had but was the same 2x1 DDR2 PC2-6400. Does it matter that the new RAM is Kingston Hyper X whereas my older RAM is just normal Kingston?
Before, I was able to overclock my E5200 to 4.00GHz (12.5x320 @1.6v) easily as I have a Corsair H50 Watercooler. My RAM timings on the Hyper X are 5-5-5-15 but my older RAM is 5-5-5-18, does this matter? When overclocking I would set it to 4-4-4-15 anyway.
When I do boot with all my RAM in I often get the Blue Screen unless, like now, I set everything to Normal, with the RAM speed at a measly 557 mhz, my System page tells me that I have 4.00GB (2.00GB Usable).
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
