Agree with Maxiar, get the same timing. | Report abuse zenmaster October 7, 2007 12:00:16 AM If they don't match, which is best, you will need to make sure that you manually set you memory timings so that they are no faster than what the slower pair can handle. | Report abuse Maziar Memory Master Motherboard Master October 7, 2007 2:49:52 PM g-paw said:Best if you can but you can run different brands or models if you have to.
