Windows 7: Can u put 2 sticks of RAM in with two different speed?

05 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

There's no harm in trying, especially since the memory is compatible with the board. You'll know right away if there's an issue or not. However, call me paranoid if you want, but I don't ever buy my memory unless it is matched sticks. I also keep the same memory in the computer, even if I fill all four slots. To me, it is easier when buying the memory, and eliminates one variable down the road if the system I build is unstable.

Have 2 sticks of 4GB ram in my notebook, but..
It only shows 7.87GB usable. Moreover, I just got a BSOD that says page fault in non paged area. Could it be the ram issue? Got it twice in like 2 months? Last month and this month.

Formatting USB Sticks
Do most folks still format USB sticks as FAT32 fs? Or NTFS? I'm running a quad core with 16GB RAM on an AMD ATX motherboard. Does it even matter? Also, take a look at the poll.

RAM... Two sticks, three sticks, dual channel, triple channels, huh?
I ordered some computer stuff at 4a.m. and I had a major brainfart when doing so. I ordered some Crucial ram that came in 2GB sticks, sold is in doubles and triple packs, my thought was well, 6GB is better then 4GB when ordering but after doing so I thought, wait, don't you normally...
