Eblim the only trick to memory is the motherboard manual. You must read and understand the information. You can install as much ram as the motherboard and cpu will except and use. Their is no magic ram or combination of ram. Just follow the motherboard manual. If their is one thing that should be required reading for anybody that opens a computer it should be the motherboard manual. Do some of us try things that aren't in the manusl; absolutely but we do it our own risk.
