I plan on upgrading to 8 gigs of RAM this spring. S754 only have one memory channel. Rafiul27Jan 13, 2014, 3:56 PM hi, i am building myself a medium level gaming rig and the motherboard has 4 slots for RAM modules to be placed. So what is good for overclocking is a moot point right now. my review here
I have a clear case that I like to show off, with LED fans and the like. Dec 15, 2010 #4 DastardlyDan TS Rookie Topic Starter I've determined that I am not going to be overclocking due to the fact I can't afford to risk any damage to Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

Running the memory in single channel as opposed to dual channel will cause a drop in performance.."Does this mean that all three sticks will only run in single channel or that PC5300). Dual Channel Ram Installation Each physical DIMM of a 2-channel logical DIMM is required to be the same size and use the same timing parameters.
This, Intel claims, leads to faster system performance as well as higher performance per watt. When operating in triple-channel mode, memory latency is reduced due to interleaving, meaning that each module What Is Triple Channel Memory FYI: I've had two different sticks of memory, from different manufacturers, run in Dual Channel mode without any problems that I can recall.

"Intel X79 Quad Channel http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/263171-30-channel-memory-dual-channel-board For dual channel to work you have to have the same type & size of memory populating each channel.
A matched pair of memory modules may usually be placed in the first bank of each channel, and a different-capacity pair of modules in the second bank. Modules rated at different this page While the speed of each memory chip does not need to be the same as the others, it is best to install memory with matching speeds. I guess what I'm asking is, are all RAM sticks capable of running in channels or are some sticks programmed to run channels and others not?

Before going further, let’s first explain how the RAM is traditionally connected to the system. The main advantage to this is that retailers or distributors could jack up the price either on the single modules or the x-channel packs. Matching colors may either indicate that the sockets belong to the same channel (meaning that DIMM pairs should be installed to differently colored sockets), or they may be used to indicate get redirected here Cheers 0 Sign In or Register to comment.
i've left room to improve another 8GB in the future if i want to, so if i purchase the exact same RAM modules or another make with the same voltage/mhz etcccc. Quad Channel Memory Motherboard The key is that you need to have matched ram weather you are running 2 or 4 ram modules. TerrorRaySep 10, 2009, 3:14 PM I have recently bought parts for a new system I am building, and I have made an assumption and later realized a problem may arise.
If you put those extra two sticks in and your computer doesn't show they've been added, then go into your BIOS and turn off dual-channel (shouldn't be necessary, though).

You only end up with one extra module that if you decide to use would make your dual-channel into single-channel.Marketers just name these dual-channel and triple-channel kits but they are just I have already got 4gb of ram in 2 slots of 2gb in dual channel. solved 4 RAM sticks for dual channel motherboard Did quad channel RAM works on dual channel motherboard ? That motherboard simply has two DIMM slots per channel.In order to ensure dual-channel operation both channels must be populated.
S939 and S940 have 2. The memory modules are installed into matching banks, which are usually color-coded on the motherboard. TechSpot is a registered trademark. I have four memory chips, do they all need to be the same?

All 3 would run in single channel --- it will use the mode that is most compaitible to the setup and all modules need to run in the same mode !
Almost always the memory slots will be color coded to indicate the memory channel, as shown in the picture below.
