Nor red.
Nothing expanded. All collapsed. So, it's all right.

One new day, full load mode, except uTorrent and no error. So, it's uTorrent's fault. I can survive like that.

Thank you for all the replies.

No, they do not have to be 100% identical. But if the dual-channel doesn't work, that's the first thing that will be blamed. Not all chips work 100% with other chips.

If it doesn't work only 2 things will happen - the system will revert to single channel mode (you may not even notice this), or the system won't work at all (won't boot). If you identify a problem, shut down and remove power/battery - then pull out the new chip. Then try booting again without the extra chip.

What is the difference between single-channel and dual-channel? I mean, how much will I see the difference if dual-channel won't work? Can you give a percentage?

Thank you!

Nope, I can't - I've never done any research on it.
I do switch RAM for customers at work, but can't tell if there's a significant difference because I've never seen their systems before.
I do use different brands at work, and if it doesn't work I just switch to a different brand.

I'd suggest searching Google for the differences between single channel and dual channel - someone's got to have done a comparison.

My guess is that there might be a significant difference. The reason is because my motherboard is only single channel DDR and I have dual channel (which operates only in single because of motherboard) OCZ Gold DDR, overclocked. See specs.

The highest I can get for winsat mem is 3000 MB/sec. Notice my timings, too.

One new question? Since my processor's FSB (T9600) is 1066MHz, can I use DDR3-1066 MHz memory? I know it does like exactly like DDR2, but I am not sure that it'll work.

Thank you!

No. It is extremely rare that motherboards can accept both standards. There's maybe one or two of them. If you have DDR2 now, you're pretty much guaranteed to only be able to use DDR2.
