Will 2 sticks of 2gb and 1 stick of 4gb work together?

I have 2 sticks of 2gb Corsair Vengeance ram (total of 4gb). I have another stick of some cheap 4gb samsung ram. Can i slot this in to have a total of 8gb?

    +1 It's a definite maybe ;)
  3. The closer in brand, type, model, timings you are between them, the better your chances of them being compatible.
  4. If they are different speeds or voltages i do not suggest it. If they are the same speeds but just different brands they should work fine.
  5. ANY time you mix DRAM it can be problematic, even with packages of the same exact model, that's why they sell such a variety of sets to meet an individuals needs, XMP programming is also by the packaged set and differs from 1 to 2 or 2 to 4 sticks....The might play nice or might not, it's a crapshoot...Regardless, chances are good it will only run in single channel (if they even play together) unless you have a mobo that supports flex mode
