Default Question on 939 board.

If I put in 3 sticks of memory instead of 4 into a 939 board what will happen? Will I lose any speed? Would it be better to have just 2 and make 1GB or the 3 and have 1.5GB.

it won't make a difference. granted if you have 2GB you'll notice a difference over 1GB but it won't conflict and not work in anyway

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Running three sticks would keep it from tunning the RAM in dual channel. It would slow it down a little, but not enough that you could really tell.
