Mixing two different RAM

Hello -

I just bought a new Mobo with RAM and I then realized that my old RAM works with the mobo I bought so I'm curious as to if mixing the RAM would give me an extra power.

Thanks for the help in advance!

  1. If you mix them, there's a big chance that it won't work together because mems should be "near" perfectly the same to work in tandem. If you can make these mems work, it will downclock to the slowest ram you have
  2. So it makes more sense to just use the better RAM by itself?
  3. Yes because that one is more "updated."

    Mixing 1866 and 1066 may work together, but will prob be very unstable, the 1866 isn't really meant to ever run that slow, best to to just use them at 1866 - Enjoy the extra speed and bandwidth ;)
  5. Hey bro, the masters have spoken, believe in them. :D (bowing) hahaha
