Hi

I did order two sticks of DDR2 800 RAM (2GB each of Kingston CL6) PN: KVR800D2N6/2G
Is it possible to connect those RAM with:
1. two sticks of CEON DDR2 800 CL5 1GB each (each stick is one side)?
2. one stick of CEON DDR2 800 CL5 1GB (double side) ?
3. one stick of CEON DDR2 800 CL5 1GB (one side) and CEON DDR2 800 CL5 1GB double side)?

I'm guessing your motherboard has 4 RAM slots & you're running a 64-bit OS? It would help to know the make/model of the board. Assuming the board supports dual channel mode, you should be able to pair things up & make it work, but you'll have to chose wisely. Be aware that the Kingston RAM is slower than the others that you listed (CL6 vs CL5) so ALL will end up running at CL6 unless you manually configure the memory settings in the BIOS. Hopefully all sticks run at the same voltage?

✔ Best Answer
Did you order 2 individual sticks or a 2 module kit? Individual RAM sticks with the same model number may not necessarily perform the same. Best to buy kits.

When using pairs with different specs the RAM will only run as fast as the slower pair.

Make sure you actually install them in matched pairs. The markings on motherboards can be confusing. Consult the manual.
