Wow. I can't make out what exactly that was all supposed to mean! Had me scratching me head. Are all 4 mem chips the exact same type? Did you run
a memtest on them yet just in case you've got a dud in the mix?
Also, realistically, you really wont notice much if any difference with mem speeds except in strict tests, so try not to stress about it too much. I
know there is a principal involved to get what you pay for though. But when it comes to memory there is a very fast edge of diminishing returns. So
when I build a system for myself or others, generally (not pure bargain basement) a decent brand bottom end chip will do the job and then I spend the
extra on a SSD, or better quality mouse/keyboard because it's surprising how the tactile feel contributes to enjoyment.
Mind you, I say all this knowing I also sprang for 2133 high end memory on my last pc, I knew better but they looked so good, and my mobo was supposed
to support it....... Did I mention to keep my system stable I'm running it at 1066 or thereabouts.... I was angry, but really don't care now
