Hello, good people.

is it possible for me to run 2x2gb and 2x4gb sticks of Crucial dominator ram of the same 1600ghz speed as dual channel in an intel DP55wb board running win7?

Thanks in advance

I don't see it causing any problems.. You can match all the modules to run on the same CAS timings from BIOS (may not be required however).. Bottomline, they'll all work together just fine..

thanks so much Emperus.

I have stupidly purchased 12gb 3x4gb sticks of Dominator ram and found i can't run it in dual channel mode.

Do you think there would be much difference in running the three sticks in single channel mode or as mentioned in my first question 2x2 and 2x4?

Thanks for your help

Triple or dual channel modes have no such significant performance boost.. The quantity matters more.. If you've already purchased the triple channel kit then just run them.. Don't think about dual channel or anything else..
