Hi first post on this forum. I have three pc100 chips 64 meg(unknown Brand) 32(UB) and a 256 micron. I was wandering if if could arrange them for optimal performance or if it was all done automatic i only have three memory slots. I asked because after i installed the 256 chip in the third slot it was actually slower than before??? Thanx

Guess I would try the 256 in the first slot, the other two in the last two slots.
Maybe even leave the 32 and 64 out and see if performance picks up

The max for each slot is 512 so i should be alright. I will try the 256 alone and then add the others thanx.

He can tell most easily by looking in his manual or checking his specs on the internet or maybe he just remembers what the max is from when he bought the mobo. His board obviously supports up to 1536 mb and so he has 3 slots... so with 512 each equals 1536 mb.

Yea I know what ya mean... we usually try to stay on topic but we easily go astray... oh well. It's only natural for one to ramble (especially me as some people here know) and so that is why we have a whole thread dedicated to it. You should stop by... but it is hard to follow because those guys have been talking so fast lately. Subjects change with the blink of an eye. It was started in early nov. and by the 12th or so of dec. we reached 1000 posts and already we are way over 2000 as of today. :eek: See what I mean?... here I go again... :D I have already recieved an honorary "official rambler" certificate from the guys here... :D
