G.Skill F3-2400C9D and G.Skill F3-2400C10D compatible?

Hello,

I just wanted to upgrade my RAM memory and I saw that it is difficult to find G.Skill F3-2400C9D-8GTXD memory online. However, it seems to be a much cheaper model G.Skill F3-2400C10D-8GTXD (almost half of the price).

The latencies are:
G.Skill F3-2400C9D: 9-11-11-31-2N
G.Skill F3-2400C10D: 10-12-12-31-2N

I guess there might not be so much difference for gaming, that is not my concern, but are they compatible? can I stick 8 GB C9D with 8GB C10D?

  1. as long as you set the c9D to run at 10-12-12-31-2N, it should run completely fine. :)
  2. Yeah they can, not sure if they'll run perfectly fine. The thing is if they don't match each other's CL, they might screw up your PC, in terms of performance that is. Its always recommended to buy RAMs either in pair or of the same company, MHz and CL.

    Better option may be to get a 16GB kit so you can run them at rated, guaranteed specs, then sell the original kit since Trident X is high in demand and shouldn't be difficult to find a buyer.

    Any time you mix sets of DRAM it's a crapshoot, it can be and often is problematic, even 2 sets of the same exact model

    Thank you!
    I think that is what I will finally do, It is a more expensive solution but I guess it worth avoiding headaches after!
