ram type for my pc advice please

hey all

 

i was looking to get more ram i got a emalil from the crucial team telling that

 

According to the results of our System Scanner and the specifications of your Advent Centurion CQ9204, this system can support up to 16GB over the four slots (4GB per slot). As your motherboard doesn't support dual-channel RAM then it’s fine to add 4GB to your existing 4GB (2x2).

The advantage to buying a kit over simply ordering two of the same module is that KITS are designed specifically with identical matched pairs, but we cannot guarantee that modules ordered individually will contain identical pairs.

You can order the compatible 4GB memory modules at the following link:

Hi pipbull,

 

Thank you for contacting us today. It does appear that your system does not run with dual channels. This being said it can still handle the same RAM, there's just no advantage to installing a matching pair of RAM. It will function perfectly fine without buying in pairs. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can help clarify.

Hi pipbull,

 

DDR2 PC2-5300 is a bit slower speed of RAM. If you install it with the PC2-6400 all of the RAM will run at the PC2-5300 speed. The speed difference between the two is very slight. PC2-5300 is the only speed of RAM we do offer in the DDR2 4GB module capacity, unfortunately.

Hi pipbull,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

It's perfectly fine to mix different memory manufacturers as long as both memory modules are compatible with your system.  This means you would have no problems at all mixing new Crucial memory with your existing memory modules.

 

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need anything else at all.
