Windows 7: Combining 2 RAM models ?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have a similar situation, originally installed (DDR2 here, runs on steam lol) 2x1gb Hyperx then later bought another 2x1gb Hyperx, same model different part. Even using ASUS TURBO motherboard (made for clocking) I have been unable to get the XMP timings to work properly. I do not have options to tweak each bank of ram individuay, but by nudging up the latency a tad I finally got the xmp frequency I was looking for.

You could run winsat mem in a command prompt and post the score if you`d like, run it 3 or 4 times then post the snip showing all 4 scores.

Not sure why you got those last 2 scores, your ram should run consistently in the 31xxx range, run it like 10 times in a row.
