    I wouldn't even try, you have a set of 1.5 sticks and are talking mixing it with 1.65 sticks, any time you mix packages of DRAM - even the same exact model, it can and often is problematic - mixing different voltages (as you propose), freqs, timings, brands, etc just exacerbates the probability of problems....best would be to get a single full set of the amount of DRAM you want, next would be to try and get a matching set to what you have and then if problems can generally get them to play with minor voltage and/or timing changes

    Ok thanks for the quick answer.
  3. No worries, know it's prob not what you wanted to hear, but hate to see folks get things that prob won't work then have to return, RMA whatever, especially if re-stocking fees may well play in
