  1. It may work; you'll just have to try it. I use all single sided ram in my board, and two are hynix and two are micron.
  2. RAM does not run at a "certain speed". Rams runs at the speed the motherboard configures it to run at by default.
    1600mhz RAM means that it is guaranteed to work at speeds up to 1600mhz, but it will work perfectly fine at ANY speed below that.
  3. Oh Ok thanks alot o1die and jitpublisher
