Simply adding more RAM does not always improve performance, and in some cases can reduce performance. simoncini 19:36 15 Feb 11 Locked My operating system is Windows 7/64 with an ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard. terryd75Mar 31, 2012, 11:26 PM bottom line here is: no guaranty! http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3040976/question-dual-channel-single-channel-single-dual-stick-ram.html
