Hi all! I just ordered an Alienware m17x R4 (not a gamer but wanted the higher-end power). All know their upgrades are way overpriced so i kept the base 6GB RAM. Since 3720qm has dual channel access, i am wondering if 6GB will cause it to run slow as it probably will be 4+2 GB DIMMs. When accessing the extra 2GB from 4GB DIMM that does not have a counterpart in 2GB DIMM, will it be running at half the speed? If so, can i swap out the 2GB DIMM with a CORSAIR 4GB DIMM - same 1600 speed (but don't know the timing/wait states etc). ?
