If my motherboard has four memory slots…is it better to install four memory sticks into all four memory slots? Or is it better to install two memory sticks into two of the four memory slots?

    In my opinion it’s better to use 4 slots because it allows more paths to access info, think of it of like traffic on a freeway 4 lanes are better than 2. Also try to stay with the same specs if possible .
