Hi, I currently have 2x512MB RAM sticks with timings of 3-3-3-8 (dual-channel kit) in slots 1 and 3. Is it OK to have 2x512MB with timings of 4-4-4-15 (another dual-channel kit) in slots 2 and 4, or will it cause problems?

Many thanks

I don't think memory timings are an issue in this context, tom.
Provided each pair of sticks meets the criteria outlined here:

The worst that could happen anyway is that the system would default to regular single-channel operation, which of course would affect performance.
