You won't get very far if you won't post System Specs or MOBO#.

Dual Chanel Boards require matched sets in specific slots if less than Max.

You must specify MATCHED sets if you want dual chanel to work reliably. "Matched" is not the same as ordered together.

Go to www. to learn about RAM and your system. Search by MFG model # or MOTHERBOARD #.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.
