    I've seen this issue addressed a couple time but was looking for some more opinions. I have the mid-2007 Macbook that is pre-SantaRosa meaning it can utilize a max of 3GB of RAM. So...

    Is there an advantage to having matching 2GB modules even if it can't make use of the full 4GB?

    Is it a potential problem to overload RAM capacity?

    Is there even a noticeable difference in performance between matched 2GB modules and unmatched 2+1?

    There is a slight performance improvement that can be had with matched pairs.

    Nope, if you put more in there than your Mac can handle, it will just ignore it.

    Not really. I'm sure someone will come along to disagree with me, but in general usage, you'll never notice the difference.
