I have a quick question about dual channel memory. I have 4 slots which can support up to two dual channel set ups. For simplicity lets name theses dual channel set ups A and B. Lets say I have Dual A set up with 2x 512's at ddr 550 (1gb total). I want to add ram to Dual B. I know that Ram within each individual channel must be identical. But must the ram from channel to channel match? For example. Can I have 2x512 ddr550 in dual A and 2x1gb ddr 550 in dual B, or am I confined to 2x512 at ddr 550 for dual B. Any help would be great.

Check your motherboard manual to be sure, but normally as long as both DDR DIMMS are identically matched in each channel, you are fine with that.
So 2X512 in one channel and 2X1024 in the other would be fine as long as your board supports that much memory.
Also, you can go to crucial.com and run their system scanner and they will give you all you ever wanted to know about upgrading your particular memory..
oustanding, thanks Michael
