Intel "asymmetric dual channel" [P5E3 Deluxe][775]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So on 775 board i popped in a 3rd ram chip due to ram being so insanely high priced and it went in to "asymmetric dual channel" mode which i knew it would but, what is asymmetric dual channel? is there a performance loss versus normal Dual Channel?

It goes into asymmetric dual channel mode because you have two ram sticks operating in harmony and a third wheel feeling a bit left out tongue.gif
There is a slight performance difference compared to having 4 exactly same ram sticks but you would notice it benchmarking mostly.
The added performance from having more Ram should make up for it.
How much did you have before and how much did you add?

i had 2x 4gb sticks of Samsung wonder ram (1600) and added a 4gb stick of PNY 1333. i got the wonder ram cause of it's ability to get tight timings. the PNY might cost me some tight timings. though the main problem is i do not know how to tighten timings on this motherboard or at all. i do know Core 2 series CPUs benefit form tighter timings.
