2 different latencies RAM

Hello,

So I recently bought two 8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM modules both running @ 1600MHZ but I noticed that one of them has 9-9-9-24 latency while the other has 10-10-10-27.

Will I still be able to run everything normally without colliding into any problems? Or would I need to balance their latencies out?

I might not be stable. I believe that you have to run them all at 10 in the BIOS.

Are they the same voltage? If not, I would highly recommend not doing this.

Yeah, both are running at 1.5V.

But I heard that the higher latency (10-10-10-27) would automatically balance itself out to equal to the other module of RAM. Not too sure about this though :)

Depends on the motherboard. You might have to manually set it if it is not automatic.

All memory will default to the speed values of the slowest sticks, not the speed of the faster sticks. You won't ever notice any difference.

Alright thanks a lot, so it should be fine if I just plug 'n' play?

Yep. Now, there might be an outside chance that the 2 different sticks won't "play" well together. But I seriously doubt it, just plug them in and see what happens. Doubt you will have any issue at all.

Everything I Heard & Known Is Wrong. In My Z87 1 ram is Corsair XMS3 4GB 1.65v 9-9-9-24 and other is Team Elite 8GB 1.50v 11-11-11-32 but both running at 9-9-9-24 and 1.5v but it wont get 1600MHz speed as XMS3 need 1.65v to run 1600MHz. Now Both Are Running At 1333MHz
