    Quick Asus P4P800 RAM question

    I was wondering if I added an additional 1 GB PC3200 DDR400 P/N: VS512MB400 to my existing 1 GB Corsair CMX512-3200C2 how it would run. The added memory is value select.

    Thoughts?

    Well If the timings on the value select are higher than the other corsair stick then you need to raise the timings in the bios.

    Since it's value select, I'm guessing it will probably have to get cranked up a tad. Does it effect the dual channel settings with 4 512's instead of 2 ?

    It might default to a lower speed with all 4 slots filled. Check your manual.
