I haven't piddled around with this kind of stuff for a long time. Could you all
take a look at this and tell me what it means and should it be changed.

Well...what is it that you attempting to troubleshoot? What's the problem?

What is the origin of the data you posted?

If that's in a TYPICAL motherboard, then you're running 2x1gb in "A" and 2x512mb in "B", thus, you're running in "dual channel" if your motherboard supports it. Leave it, as it is fine, unless you want to ditch the 512mb and replace them with the same 1gb sticks in "B" slots.

I'm thankful that I don't have a problem. I'm just trying to understand. Two programs give me the same. CPU-Z AND EVEREST. There are two speeds like 200mhz and 266mhz on the same stick of ram. Why does one stick of ram have different speeds. Thanks for help.

(4.0-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) (3.0-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)

The first set of numbers (4.0-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) are your memory timings at a 266mhz speed. (3.0-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz) is what the memory is rated at while running at 200 mhz. Generally the higher the memory speed, the looser the timing you have to run in order to be stable.

The timings are referred to as the "SPD" and is set by the RAM manufacturer.
