Double Checking Some Concerns


Apr 27, 2010
Hey guys, recently I saw a deal on some cheap memory and bought them:
My current memory is:
My current Mobo is:
My current processor is:
Running Win 7 64-bit

I have a couple of questions regarding upgrading the memory:

1. If I were to just add them into the remaining 2 channels and keep my current RAM in there, dual channel would still be active right?

2. If I were to add them into the remaining 2 channels, would I have to manually change anything in the BIOS? I noticed everything is the same except for the timing: 7-8-7-24-2N on the old, and 9-9-9-24 on the new.

3. Assuming I would have to underclock the new memory some amount, would I get better performance if I just took the old sticks out and used only the new ones?

Basically I'm curious as to what option would result in the best performance.

Thanks guys!
