Dec 17, 2010, 3:15 PM
Hey guys I build my own pc a while ago i only got 2Gb ram now.
Its Corsair xms3 ddr3 but im not sure of the number (1800(O.C.) /1666/ 1333/1066) like that < Is it the moduals?
My Mainboard is GA-MA785GT-UD3H
Was wondering can you mix and match your memory as long as your mainboard can support it?

Go to the Corsair site or Newegg or whatever and try to identify your RAM. Or find the invoice, it's best to get the same RAM as the one you have. If not it's best to have the same voltage. Maybe it's this 1.6V one:

You gotta open the case and see how it looks like. You have one stick or two?
