    Default WinXP 32bit + XFast RAM = ...GB


    I have:
    - motherboard ASROCK 970DE3/U3S3: ASRock > 970DE3/U3S3
    - AMD Phenom II X4
    - WinXP Prof (32bit) SP3
    - RAM 4GB (2x2 Dual Chanel)

    I want to use XFast RAM. If i will buy next 4GB (2x2 Dual Chanel) is it possible to have 4GB for windows and 4GB for RAM disk using XFast RAM?

    In theory yes. So long as it matches what you have now. Caveats apply, read below.

    The ram you next purchase must be an exact match SPD programming wise to your existing ram. If it isn't I will almost guarantee problems.

    If you think matching will be hard, for whatever reason, IMHO you'd be best served by buying an 8Gb(2x4Gb) kit and shelving the current 2x2Gb you have.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.

    #3 - Please use the PSU Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be the PSU causing issues. I do(Lifetime PRO ver.) and will mention so if it is marginal for your build.
