Memory Question

Can anyone tell me why im only getting 4,300mbs when i do a memory test. Im using corsair ultra low latency ram. I have 2 2gb sticks and 2 1gb sticks. Will it improve if i remove the 2 1gb sticks and just run 2 2gb sticks. Here is my #'s any help appreciated.

How fast do you think your memory is suppose to go? Are you having performance issues?

LOL, thats pretty high, 7.1, mines only 6.4 X), and about your question, maybe the 2 1GB sticks are running a lower frequency?

I have seen people with 8k mbs transfer rate for memory tests on this forum, There all the same brand and type just different size but have same frequency settings. And the reason for the taking the 2 sticks out is becouse i actually had a score of 7.9 with only the 2 2gb sticks in. And no im not having any performance issues other then the issue i always have... Its never fast enough.

Make sure they are dual channel and keep the ones that are most similar in pairs, say you have two 1066 sticks, its best to keep those in the rails side by side and really you don't wanna mix clock speeds and types anyways, it can cause bottlenecking especially if you game
Here's mine

So your saying that slot 1 and 2 should have both the 2gb sticks and 3 and 4 should be both the 1gb sticks. There the exact same ram except the size, the frequency's are both the same on all the sticks. I thought the 2 2gb sticks needed to stay in the same color slots ie 2 2gb sticks in orange or slot 1 and 3 and the 1 gb sticks in greens ie slots 2 and 4. Am i wrong for this assumption?

Not sure what kinda board you have but mine has the two color slots side by side. say two yellow then two black. i'm sure that if you keep the bigger in slots one and two they will be used more roughly where as the extra two would be to help keep up pace just metaphorically. if you run benchmarks, then your best bet would be swapping and experimenting what gives you best speeds and latency with which pairs.

Yea my motherboard is mine is not color coded like that mine goes white 1 black 2 white 3 black 4. so I thought color coded but not side by side. I will try putting the 2 2gb sticks in slots 1 and 2 and 2 1gb in 3 and 4 and see were that gets me.

From what I remember to run dual channel you have to have the same sticks in the same colored slots. But I would suggest checking your motherboard manufacturers manual or site for the proper way to use it. IMO

Question regarding Dual Channel Memory- Mix or Match Memory
I have a computer I built and used since 2010 running well. It has two matched 4GB sticks of DDR3 for a total of 8GB. I have two remaining slots (empty) for ram on the motherboard to add more ram. Do I need to find the exact same memory as the ram I am currently using or does it matter?

Question on Memory
I just got me a hot deal on a new laptop. It is a Core i5 that comes with 6 GB of RAM. It has a 4 and a 2 stick. The fact that the channels are uneven, does that do anything to hinder the performance of the laptop? Thanks,
