Performance dip after RAM upgrade

  O-NO 20:53 13 Apr 05

I just fitted an extra 512 of RAM giving me a total of 1.5G but has resulted in a FPS performance dip........why would this be?

AMD 64 3700+
1.5G RAM PC3200

Check your motherboard manual, and take a look at my previous thread > click here <

The crux of which is that when you use all three RAM slots on the K8V motherboard, all the memory runs at 333mhz, not 400mhz.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.

Hi, I don't know why - but more RAM, up to a point, does not necessarily mean more speed. I would advise removing that which you have just fitted. If you want more speed a better bet would be a more powerful CPU if your mobo can take it.
