Using RAM 1333 set 1600 in bios
im currently using 2 stick of RAM, 1 is 4GB single chnl 1600, and 1 is 2GB 1333. BIOS has set it up at 1600, is it fine if the 1333 set at 1600?

jitpublisher said:Yes, if you are not having problems, it is okay.Geef said:Just to make sure its not having problems you will probably want to run memtest86 and also give it a 24 hour run through of prime95 to check for errors.das_stig said:Running 1333 @ 1600 is just asking for trouble, your better off dropping the 1600 @ 1333.Anonymous said:Not sure why its even running at 1600 unless you have it manually set in the Bios. usually they run at the lowest speed. And thats quite a bit of a jump for overclocking if its just your basic memory and not your high end stuffAnonymous said:Get CPU-Z and check in the memory tab - it will show the freq at 800 if you are running 1600 as this is DDR (Double data rate)...if running 1600 and rig is stable - then you're good to go !
thank u all. thats why i opened this thread, i want to know if i will get problem doing this. hehehe my physics score with 3dmark11 is too low, so someone suggest me to set my RAM to 1600
