Question on 939 board.

By ingeborgdot

  1. 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.

    Nothing bad happens, the memory will just work in single channel mode instead of dual channel. It's somewhat slower, but you can't really see the difference in everyday use. If I had to choose between 1.5 GB single channel and 1 GB dual, I'd pick the 1.5.
