So I'm adding ram to my computer, currently i have 4 stix of 2GB each. 2 are Rendition by Crucial(bought these two first) the second two are Wintech(got them off newegg second)? They have different timings, using cpuz i found that
I'm still having some issures where everything runs smooth then it seases up into deadlock and i have to reset. Do i have them installed improperly? I asked a friend if it mattered what slots i put them in and he said do it like this "DIMM 1 rendition, DIMM 3 Wintec, DIMM 2 rendition, DIMM 4 wintec. My DIMMS are ordered 1, 3, 2, 4. If it matters the colors go purple orange purple orange, should i have done what i though (rendition rendition, wintec wintec?) so 1 and 3 have the same and 2 and 4 have the same?
If you have an Intel based motherboard, then you have them in the correct slots (check your manual to make sure), but running 2 sets of non-identical modules is challenging. Try increasing the voltage a bit as that could help. Also run Memtest+ for several hours to make sure that there are no memory errors (though you can never be 100% sure).
