CrystalMethod said:I prefer 2 sticks, because of the redundency factor. Like stated above, if one module is bad, you can still run at 256 till you get a repacement. If you only have one stick, you're kinda out of luck till you get a replacement. For overclocking purposes, I haven't seen a difference between having 2 sticks instead of one.

Even if all sticks are good to X FSB, when running 2 sticks you can only get X- 5 FSB and when running 3 stick X - 12FSB for example.
But a system speed will be the same at X FSB if you have 1 stick or RAM or 4 sticks, its just that you X FSB will be lower the more sticks of RAM you have.
This is just my past experience speeking...
and that is even with identical RAM from the same batch
