I have an Asus borad and 12 GB of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 ram. 3 pack of 2X2gbs of the same TW3X4G1333C9A memory, same timing, voltage and latency. I was told that this was mixing and wasn't recommended. My question is why is this mixing modules and will it work in dual channel mode? I've read other threads here on tom's that stated you could mix different brands, and timings.
The Memory is Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333
I went to Corsair's memory compatibility chart to see if my memory was compatible with my motherboard. Their chart recommended another type memory TR3X6G1333C9 but it's was same as my TW3X4G1333C9A across the board. Same memory type =DDR3-1333 (XMS3-9-9-9-24*1.5v), same format =240-pin DIMM, and same latency =9-9-9-24-2T. So I asked on their forum if it would be okay and was told that it was mixing modules because I got them in 3pks of 2X2gb and not as one 12gb kit. It was late it sounded crazy to me too so I came here. As I mentioned it was late when I posted this thread so forgive me for leaving out important details.
This was Corsair tech and they really had me confused. It was earlier in the night when this started and I was quite coherent then. After searching 6 hours of mixing memory threads my faculties may have been a bit tattered by the time I finally posted so I do apologize for babbling.
