Is one 512 faster than a 512 and a 128?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Will the additional 128 slow the system down or give it an extra bump from increased quantity?

With only one stick of 512 there is no dual channel to begin with, so the 128 shouldn't hurt right? Provided they are both the same speed?

Trying to figure out how to best utilize my companys current PCs components.

any help will be greatly appreciated!

I reccommend that you lose the 128MB but add a 256...

I think that the 128 would just waist money. 128MB nowaday's is like a 64MB in the beginning of last year...

i'm not purchasing anything smaller than 512. I'm just trying to see if this stack of 128 thats sitting here is worth distributing to all the single channel boxes.

It will help. You will sacrifice a little in the timings dept. but you should gain some overall improvements. If it slows it down yank it back out. Since you already own it you will be at no monitary loss, only the time it took to do it.

i just ran some very limited tests using memtest. It seems that i lose about 5 MB/s in bandwith in exchange for the extra 128 MB in quantity. 775MB/s down to 769MB/s and happily the timings didn't change.

Realize this has little to do with overclocking, but knew you guys would be up for helpin. Thanks!
