  • DDR2 SDRAM Question

    Would 2x1GB Memory modules draw more power from the power supply than 2x512GB?
    And what about start up time difference/hybernation.

    AFAIK, the amount of memory on the stick does not change power consumption.

    Hibernation would take FOREVER with 2 gigs... I stick to 512 because of this. 512 for me takes about 12 seconds to hibernate. Coming out of hibernation, it's only about 8 though.

    2 sticks of DDR2 will take up about 15 watts total.

      What about 2x512 vs 1x1GB?
      Which setup do u think is better (for power consumption and boot/hyber/sleep times)?

        Power consumption, less is always better. If your board supports dual channel, I'd go with the 2x512, just a little more performance. If not, stick with one stick. Hibernation won't change either way AFAIK. It'll still take FOREVER.

            I need PC-4200 533Mhz DDR2 dual channel. Thanks for the link though. That store has some cheap memory.

            "Kit" doesn't mean its Dual-Channel or does it?

              Kit means its a matched pair made of the same batch. Yes the ram supports dual channel since on top of the page it says
