  1. heya sorry for making a new threat i tried to read previous posts but around after an hour or so i didnt find 100% my answer. so what i want to ask is

    I am allready using on dual channel setup 2x Kingston's KVR400X64C25 512MB pc300 400mhz.

    Now i found 2 pieces of Kingston KVR400X64C3A 512MB PC3200 400mhz on really cheap price.

    if i purchace them and use them on my 2 free Dual Channel Slots on my mobo they will work fine right? i mean they wont mess the dual channel on my 25's and they will all work toggether on dual channel mode x2 ?

    "I am already using on dual channel setup 2x Kingston's KVR400X64C25 512MB pc300 400mhz."

    I'm guessing that you missed the 2 out above in the red area. If you have then i checked both types of RAM card are the same and will be compatible.

    Having checked them both they are both DDR so i don't see why you thought there was a problem

    You won't lose dual channel, and it will probably work. But there is some risk involved that the new and old RAM won't get along well together. Pretty small risk IMO, but can't tell for sure.
