Too Much Unbuffered Memory?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey there guys, i have 2 sticks of unbuffered, Buffalo 1 gig ram sticks. And in addition to that, i have 2 sticks of unbuffered Buffalo 512mb ram sticks.

So that adds up to 3 gigs of unbuffered memory. Well recently i ran a test in a program called Si Sandra, and it told me its not good to have too much unbuffered memory. Should i just leave 2 gigs of ram in my computer or completely change them out? Or should i just leave my 3 gigs of unbuffered memory in there?

You should really only start getting buffered memory when the sticks are 2GB because the density is condusive to bit-flips.
