Tags: Memory Dual Channel Product Last response: April 24, 2010 4:37 AM in Memory Share novicetechie April 24, 2010 12:54:44 AM I'm not quite sure if this would work, but if I purchased 2 sets of 4gb kits (each kit has 2gb by 2), and install in all 4 slots - can I successfully achieve an 8gb system?

Can I use 4gb on dimm1+3, then use a 2gb set on dimm2+4? Or will I run into complications in terms of cas latency, voltage etc? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

But it should work fine for example, if you use a 2x2GB kit with say CL8, 1.6V, with an exact same 2x1GB version. For example, this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Although the 2x1GB does seem to have some issues with some boards. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
