Not on my P5Q Pro..

I have ran together 2x2GB of this HyperX 1066MHz and 2x1GB of 800MHz Apacer and never had any issues..

Even OC was the same (perfectly stable, error free @ this 3.9GHz, RAM @ 918MHz 5-5-5-15, PL=10)..

It depends on motherboard and RAM type itself..

Lesser strain on the chipset because you used 2x2GB and 2x1GB vs 4x2GB. My Gigabyte board also overclocked better with 2x2GB and 2x1GB vs 4x2GB. However, it cloks perfectly fine with 4x2GB. Not a big difference VS 2x2GB and 2x1GB.

P5Q Pro/Turbo has huge issues overclocking 4x2GB. Some even have problems at stock speeds. Do a search on Google and you'll see. You will also see people who did not have issues with 2x2GB and 2x1GB, but when they upgraded to 4x2GB the problems started.

Man don't compare a Gigabyte P35 mobo to Asus P45 as they are world apart..

Now All DIMM's populated = 4 RAM sticks pluged into a motherboard..

There's no difference between 6GB and 8GB in system as they both use all RAM slots..

I have seen people having issues with 4x1GB combos but when they turned to 2x2GB problems were gone..

It has everything to do with particular motherboard (quality of NB chip) and type of RAM used..

PanicProne was using 8GB of RAM on his P5Q Pro (two different kits 2x2GB HyperX 1066 and 2x2GB GSkill 1066) and he didn't have any issues whatsoever..

His mobo OC'd the same with 4GB and 8GB..

But also he ran his HyperX 1066MHz at rated speed and I never managed to do it even we had the IDENTICAL setup (Q9550 E0,P5Q Pro,HyperX 1066 2x2GB RAM)..

So it all goes down to the particular motherboard (NB) and the RAM itself..

CHEERS..

I'm actually considering ordering 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix PC6400 CL4 and run them toghether with 2x2GB Ballistix PC6400 CL4. I know my overclocking would be perfectly fine with that setup.

That will cost me about 49 Euro. And will give me a 6GB RAM setup with full Dual Channel that overclocks very well.

There is a difference overclocking 2x2GB and 2x1GB vs 4x2GB. Even if all slots are occupied. And I will prove it. Will order those chips.

KingT,

And as I've said, do a search on Google. You will fin people that upgraded from 2x2GB VS 2x1GB to 4x2GB, same brand. Then their problems started. So quit being stubborn.

Of course, some 4x2GB brands could do well in these boards. But for all the brands that are having problems, there is a huge difference going from 4x2GB to 2x2GB and 2x1GB.

This is a fact.

He has been lucky with the brands. They work well, so what? That was not my point.

My proof that 2x2GB and 2x1GB will overclock better than 4x2GB you will have when my RAM arrives.

It will be 2x2GB and 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix PC 6400 VS 4x2GB Crucial Ballistix PC 6400. First setup will overclock great.

And you say you can't compare P35 VS P45? Bull****, P35 is not that different. And it shows the same symptoms, 2x2GB and 2x1GB is easier to overclock than 4x2GB.

And of course, it may be that another brand of 4x2GB would have clocked better on my board. This was not the point. My two 8GB sets are not working well on this board, when overclocking. And they are on the QVL. Listed as ok in all slots.

And yes, the P5Q Pro/Turbo have issues with 4x2GB RAM. Do a search on google. But as I've said, some brands may work better then others. But there is no doubt these boards have trouble with 4x2GB in general.

End of story. You will get your proof soon enough.

ive only ever been interested in asus boards but most oc cases filling the 4 slots seems to cause strange problems,normally upping the nb volts solves it but its still something not right.
and we need stability.....right.
