I assume you mean 4GB. Yes it should, but only under vista. Disable some for xp.

HELLO DOES THIS [01.Modify Corsair CM2X1024-10000C5D & Corsair CM2X1024-6400C4D patch rule] MEAN THE CM2X1024-6400C4D WILL NOW WORK!! I might reinstall the board again. I did download this BIOS about a week ago but could not find a log of this fixes so never borther reinstalling the board. My IN9 MAX seems a bit iffy lately with cold boots.
