Question about ram

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I currenty have vista ultimate with 2x1 ram. I wanna get 4 in 4x1, but i have a friend who sais 4x1 will make my overclock more unstable and 2x2 is better. If i get 2x2 i will have to sell my other 2x1 which is inconvenient for me, so i want to know if this is true.

Running 4x1 stress the NB, thus can make your overclock unstable.
It depends on the board, I know my ip35-pro wouldnt even run 4 sticks of ddr-1000 or higher memory at any voltage.

I think your friend is right. On some low-end motherboards, this is a common factor of instability.

Now that comment wasnt called for at all. Some motherboards are picky about the number of ram slots filled. So it may or may not cause a issue.
