Thread: 4 DIMM dual channel question

    I'm planning on building a socket 939 setup soon. Probably using a motherboard like the ASUS A8V. It has slots for 4 DIMM's using 2 sets of matching pairs. I am wondering what happens if the 2 pairs are not matching. More specifically, I am thinking of buying a nice set of OCZ ddr500 for one set and I have the ability to get a large amount (possibly 2 Gigs) of very slow timing ddr400 in a second matching set. Assuming the new chipset doesn't have any problems filling up all the slots like some of the older socket 754 did, what should I expect? Is it possible to run one set at a faster timing than the other (or has it been in any other chipsets)?

    You can't run them at different timings and alot of times it will not work unless its identical memory
