i have a gig of pc3200 in 2 of the slots right now.

i also have 512 of pc2700 lying around. i heard that if i put it in the other slots they will run on their own seperate frequencies in their slots

the reason i'm doing this is because i am using integrated 6100 right now (its better than the 5500 till i can get a new one) and its taking 256 of my ram...gayness


so is this possible? or would they just clock down to pc333

dammit...... and its the ram that came out of the hp...

would i benifit from it running at lower frequencies but more, or having less at higher speeds?

yer but doesnt all ram have to be the same size for dual channel to work ?

i know it doesnt matter about same brand or anything because mine is mixed lol

EDIT: and the timings would also change if you put in new ram......to the timings that the new ram can handle

yes. 2 of the sticks that are in there right now. if i add 2 MORE sticks, then it would all run in dual channel. 2 of the slots are purple and the other 2 are orange
