  1. I am putting together some old parts to build a computer. the first mem. slot the latch is broke so I am wondering if putting the mem in the second bank would make any difference? u do understand by bank I mean slot 2 & 4.

    Replace the broken latch? or is it worse than just a Latch break?
    BANK 1 = slot 1 & 2
    BANK 2 = slot 3 & 4
    Banks prefer to be locked together in their family of slots (sounds porno) Access is slowed if the CPU needs to find the RAM every time you open a new Program / Access a CD/DVD drive / search for a file on HD / open the server -just all the MAIN tasks it should make a difference to (virus scan as well).

    @Tedster great thread, fantastic stuff
    You probably have not heard of Professor Julius Sumner Miller who had a program that aired here in the LandOfDownUnder called "Why is it so"
    I recommend Ep.11 "In the lions Den" :evil: - not quite disassembled computers.....but a point none the less

    actually I have - and I have seen quite a few of his shows when I was younger! The mad scientist! Used to be on Johnny Carson in the 1970s and also on disney shows as well as PBS. Most of these youngsters wouldn't know.
