Re: 2 DIMMs vs 4 DIMMs
I dunno about AM3 memory controlers but on previous AMD chips your memory speed was limited if all 4 dimms were populated. Even if you had say 1066 memory for example, you were forced to run 800 speeds.
I have that issue for example, if I were only running 2 dimms Id be able to do 1066 but If I try it with 4 dimms the system becomes unstable.
Its a memory controller issue, make sure you check to see if the AMD chips with DDR3 memory controller have that issue as well.
