4 x 512mb on P4P800 SE

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I want to get 4 x 512mb in dual channel on my P4P800 SE but does anyone know if this will slow down the memory controller??? Has anyone done this with my Mobo???

Also do you guys think 2GB will hold on for another 3 years or so... or should I just go with 2x 1gb then later 4 x 1gb..?????

Dude, 2 gig's will be fine man. 1 gig is more than enough as it is, so you would be fine with 2.

I know that the smaller the stick, the easier it will overclock, and the tighter the timmings at stock. I'm not familiar with your mobo, but if it's Dual Channel (with four slots) and if you buy 2 sets of dual channel ram, make sure you keep the matched sticks together to keep it dual channel and to keep your bandwidth up.

Yes,putting 4xsticks in a p4p800se will slow the controller,but not much.I have one and i know mine running slower than it should but overclocking it usually makes up for it.I also wouldn't worry about upgrading to 4gb on that mobo since it has problems with that much ram.Read your manual about that.

Thanks man but do you or anybody else know if having 4x 512mb will be too much for my memory controller and decrease performance

Yep you're right about the 4GB.... there so stupid saying it supports 4gbs but in the manual fine print says may only detect 3gb

Yeah, but you don't NEED all that dude.

MY rig is a 100% gamer. That's the only reason built it, and with 1 gig, it's perfect. It even plays the memory hungry BF2 perfectly with one gig.

By the time you will NEED 3 gigs.....trust me, you wont even remember this mobo anymore.
