Can I fit two different frequency based RAMS?

I have 1x4 GB of Kingston DDR3 RAM at 667 Mhz on my Gigabyte 78 LMT USB3 motherboard. Can I fit there a RAM of 800 Mhz or more? Would it perform or should I have to remove one RAM which is not supporting the motherboard?

it is very likely that you might face a problem. even if you don't you will only end up with a similar performance as that of the 1333 ram you are currently using

with another 4gb module you will get the dual channel working too. so even if the new module works at 667 too (will work at the speed of the first module) the whole assembly will work better.

also, check those values, they seem too low for ddr3

667mhz is the base speed....since the module is a double data rate, 667mhz will translate to 1333mhz

Thanks for your kind information. Please tell me in short details about the RAM frequency. If I have a 667 MHz DDR3 RAM installed on my motherboard, does it mean that it would double up the frequency?
