May I ask you , why did you buy the faster RAM , and then run them slower?
And I am looking into some other RAM , and I found some I want to ask your opinion about. Not that I am not considering your recommendations ,
Here they are selling 3x 2GB for a similar price, wouldn't I wanna have 6gb , instead of 4 , if the price is right ? Or do I need to pair the RAM on the motherboard , always have Dual RAM and not Dual 2gb x2 , and an additional third 2gb and leave one slot open ? I know they sell these triple set RAMS for the x58 chipset boards , but still I was considering those aswell.
