You get better performance with matched dual chnl sticks vs 1.
Rule of thumb is not necessarily 1 or 2 being better.
Examp.
1x 1g module vs 2x256meg ... the 2x256 should OC better.

The lower the RAM volume persay OCes better provided you have addiquate memory volume to run the system efficently.

1 stick will OC better than 2.
2 sticks will have greater performance than 1.

Unless its a skt. 754 system, 2 sticks will have worse performance than 1.

yes, 2 is the best you can get, because you are running dual channel which gives a nice boost in performance......sorry, I'm testing my rig right now....its chilly out...gonna get a 3.2 superpi 1m.

ah sorry, missed that one. I just used a saw with my hand. Blade had small teeth, bout 6 inches long and 3/4" wide. Supposed to be used in a handheld saw or something. Figured it cut so easily with just using my hand, I didn't bother with the machine.

My case is all aluminum too, so that's why it was so easy. Most cases are solid metal so that would be another project.
