    I've heard on this forum that some people are fine with 6GB (probably a single 6GB module). I've bought 4GB on the cheap to add them to my 2GB due to Lion. Can I experience any problems due to this size difference between the 2 modules? On SL the 2GB have been more than enough, except when using parallels. Thanks for your help.

    The only way to get 6 GB in 2 slots is what you have (4 GB + 2 GB). There is no such thing as a 6 GB module.

    You're fine, you won't experience any issues. Having a matched pair can yield some speed increases, but in general more RAM is better than having a matched pair.

    You're right, it's quite late where I live, I thought I had seen a 6GB module when it was a 6GB kit (4+2).

    Cheers,
