that is completely untrue. so you are saying that i am paying 2-3 times more for my corsair memory than generic bottom of the barrel memory just because it is more relaible? that makes no sense at all. many low-budget memory are more relaible than the high quality memory.
Soloman02 you will notice a big difference in speed actually due to the lower latency from the memory timings on high quality memory.
but for your purpose if you mix generic memory with quality memory you are defeating your purpose. you should either stick to getting another low-priced memory module or replacing the k-byte memory with only high quality memory.
it is like mixing high quality gasoline with low quality gasoline ... okay maybe thats not a good analogy
