I have a motherboard that supports dual memory. I have (2) dual corsair 256 sticks, total of 512 mhz. My other memory chips are (2) Kingston 256. This makes a total of 1 ghz of memory. When I put all of the memory in the motherboard it will not work on dual memory because the Kingston are not designed like this. The mother board reverts back to single memory usage. My question: Is it better to only put in the dual memory chips by corsair making a total memory of 512mgz using the dual memory or put them all in making a total of 1ghz with the dual turned of by the motherboard? :uhm: Any ideas would be appreciated. Dan

theres really no difference between the Corsair memory and the Kinsgton. Many memory makers out there are selling these dual memory kits, but there just 2 sticks that after tested were packaged with another stick that tested equal or damn near equal in performance, simply to help insure that those 2 sticks work together more reliable and stable but- Try puting one of each brand into each channel, so (corsair, Kinston) and (corsair, kinsgton) this may work, if not its cus the 2 pairs you have are to different interms of timming and or speed.
