Kingston paired with Corsair.....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i've been away for a bit got comfy with what i had but after having. Wow open.. spotify.. comodo.. and something else my 4GB 32bit windows decides that "" you need to close programs to free up virtual memory "".

I disabled the page file cause i have an SSD. So as i should i bought another 4GB. So i have a total of 8GB yes 8 running on a 32bit win7. Gotta love the Russian folks! So to get windows to boot and be stable i had to loosen timings or change ram speeds for stability...

Original

2x Kingston DDR3 1600 sticks clocked in at 1680 ( 210FSB ) running @ 7-8-8-24 1.65v

now

2x Kingston DDR3 1600 sticks clocked in at 1600 ( 200FSB ) running @ 9-10-10-26 1.60v
with a new Corsair Vengeance clocked the same.

Stability i mean by my definition WPRIME 1024MB and atleast a 1gb transcoding file on Handbrake

Woulda though the corsair would be better? Maybe i've just got a bad stick?

Can't have more than ~3.47GB readable in 32-bit OS.

You need 64-bit for more usable RAM.

Installed memory can be more than 4 GB. but Windows 32-bit can't access more than 4 GB. so the additional RAM does you no good.

I don't mean to show just that you can use over 4gb in 32bit.. i just want to know why my corsair needs to run slower. Would it fix it it had another 4gb stick same type in channel 4?

Mixing of DDR3 RAM is never recommended because often it does not function properly - if at all. Mixing two brands of RAM even if they have the same specs is risky because they probably have different ICs? You could run Memtest86+ on each DIMM and then on all DIMMs as a group to check for errors. If it's any consolation, higher than 1333 MHz. doesn't make much if any difference in real world applications because the RAM isn't a bottleneck in the system.

Corsair says the latency and frequency rating on their RAM is for the specific DIMM or RAM kit that you buy. If you add another DIMM or RAM kit of the same part number, they are NOT guaranteed to run at the same latency and frequency as a single DIMM/RAM Kit.

Since Win 7 32-bit can only access 4 GB. of RAM, I would not buy more RAM unless you plan to upgrade to 64-bit.
