Is it possible to have different sizes of the same ram in the different dimm sockets :

dimm1 2GB kingston hyperx
dimm2 4GB kingston hyperx
dimm3 2GB kingston hyperx
dimm4 4GB kingston hyperx

for a total of 12GB.

Or do they all have to be 4+4+4+4 ?

Yes, but you will cause some bottlenecks by using mismatched RAM. Why do you need so much RAM anyway, are you running a 64-bit OS in the first place?

12GB ram in a lga775 system? sounds weird.

yes it would work, but it would be a bit of hell to overclock. you may also need to increase voltage to 1.9 or 2.0 if it doesn't post properly, stick to 1.8 if it works.
