Hello,

Have anyone tested the impact of different memory configurations in the overall power consumption?

I'm particulary wondering what could be the difference between using:
2*1GB (2 sticks)
4*1GB (4 sticks)
2*2GB (2 sticks)

Also, do latencies or bus speed have any impact in the power consumption?

ddr2 takes 1-2W per stick,insignificant in context of total system consumption. overclocking the RAM will increase power consumption.

Correct. Go with two sticks, either 1gb or 2gb.
