My System Specs

Default

I'm gonna have to do some more reading on this setup and I can't do that till later. Honey Do list n stuff...

Seems to me you don't take advantage of dual channel bandwidth with the extra ram modual installed. More ram is always better in most senarios however the bandwidth advantage with dual channel unganged is lost. Easiest way to return to a pure dual channel is to purchase another modual and run with 8 gigs of all the same stuff. All the specs must match. <-- that's not entirely correct however you should always try and match memory.

Someone else needs to chime in on this though because I'm not a 100%

This may or may not apply to your setup I don't have time to read it all right now.

Desktop Boards &mdash; Single, dual, triple, and flex memory modes
