More than 2 sticks of RAM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A buddy of mine with 2 512 sticks of CORSAIR was telling me that his RAM doesnt support more than 2 sticks at a time. (as in if he put in a 3rd it wouldn't recognize it). How can I tell if my RAM can support more than 2 sticks? I was thinking of picking up another 2 512 sticks to give me 2GB but I dont know if it will even work. Was he full of it? Enlghten me. Sorry I dont know the model number of the RAM.. I suppose I should open it up and look at some point

on that mobo, if it has the slots, it will support it, as long as its the same kind of RAM (DDR type, PC####)

some (older) mobo's support both SD-RAM, and DDR, and you cant mix and match, so maybe thats what hes thinking

Thanks, that's what I thought. I have a feeling he might just be loopy. His mobo is a brand new Xfire ATI mobo with 4 slots of PC 3200.

It's the motherboard that determines how many sticks can be used, not the ram. Also, some motherboards will downclock 4 sticks to 333mhz and 2T CPC.
