Solved 1 Module, 3 Channels Tags: Memory Performance Memory Upgrade Last response: June 6, 2010 5:01 AM in Memory Share ekhahniii June 6, 2010 3:25:36 AM What sort of performance hit might be taken from placing 1 4gb mem module in a 1366 mobo? Unconventional, yes. I'm still curious. Obviously, the intent of doing such a thing is to allow for maximal memory upgrade in the future. Thanks!
