Dual Core question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 2 gigs of Patriot DDR400 (2x1gb)

I bought these seperately about 2 months apart.

I am running them in Dual channel, of course/

Is it a big deal that I didn't purchase these together in a a dual channel package?

Should I sell and rebuy? Return? Exchange? Overclock?


OOOOOPS, I meant dual CHANNEL question...shi$

Is it reporting as Dual Channel at BOOT?
If they are the same chips with the same timings your probably ok... but like I posted above

As Duke said you should be fine. If the chips were extremely different, your computer might not boot at all. Mine did that to me when I added another set of sticks. I had to RMA and everything was great once I got the new sticks in.
