  1. These DIMMs should work together without much problem. They have the exact same timings and voltages which is great. I would be very surprised if they do not work together. Worst case scenario you would have to go into the BIOS and set the timings manually, but that shouldn't be a problem.
    Good luck.
  2. Hopefully they would, but never know until you try, any time you mix sets (or single sticks) it can be problematic...Generally at the lower freqs (1333, 1600) chances are good, might need voltage adjustment (possibly timings), if you try and need help, give a shout
  3. Thank you so much i will give it a try, but i hope i can get 1-2 more replies just in case. thank you.

    Actually should i be worry if they both say dual channel?

    That is actually a good thing. Your MoBo uses dual-channel memory, they are both certified for dual-channel operation so there should be no problems with that. There can sometimes be problems with using 4 sticks that are certified for dual-channel usage in quad-channel on something like Intel's x79 platform, but there will be no issues in that regard to your situation.
    Good luck.
  5. thank you once again, i will go ahead and give them a test.
  6. On last question No, and stick can run in any mode as long as there are enough sticks to support the mode and the MC supports it, the sticks don't care
  7. hmm something is different here

    I have this weird

    For some reason the corsair is not stated as the one i got it is a pc3 10700h ???

    i am 100% sure it is this http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=55068 it said clearly 12800 PC3. I don't think i did anything ..well i did OC before i reverted back to original because it caused some problem before.

    oh my cpu can't handle faster then the memory so it downgraded it? but will it cause problem if i leave it like this?

    will this cause problem in the future?

  8. In the first, you are looking at the SPD tab, the MAX BANDWIDTH is simply a setting to match up a mobos default Boot settings, The Memory tab tells you what things actually running at (can find more here:

    http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=10565

    down at the bottom of the SPD page should show a column headed XMP and then 800 that should show the proper timings for use at 1600

    ***and will be in and out all day, client called and cancelled today as I started to drive over there, had to bring some folks in to work, will be doing his systems late, late tonight

    I understand the concept thanks, but it won't harm the system being like this it just auto adjust both or 4 rams to sync to s same timing ?

    i am sorry to heard that too, i understand how you feel i once did on call works, woke up 2am in the morning to replace someone and he actually show up...back to drivng home sleepy @ 3am ..to sleep and work on a shift @ 6am
  10. Auto will prob simply set to the lower freq, give it a try, if they run together at 1333, I believe we can get 1600
