Windows 7: Memory RAM advice

22 Jun 2015   #61

windows 7 home premium 64bit

Also Id like to ask, if I purchase 3 of those RAMS and one DIMM slot is empty does it affect the performance? Since these DIMM slots are like doubles.

You are better buying kits (2x2GB or 4x2GB) as they're manufactured to work together, but it should be OK. You would lose the dual channel function though.

Yes that makes sense, Im going to boost up the memory a bit to 16GB no less. So Ill get 4 RAM sticks of 4GB for each DIMM slot. Totaling up to 16GB which would be suffice for now.

So I think your effort and assistance is accomplished guys. Thanks for the patients and support and Ill give a brief update how the PCs performance goes when I get my RAM on the weekend.

Kind regards.

my pc desperately at this current stage.
