My CAS is 7 and timings are 7-7-7-21 and 1333mhz. is it okay to add different kind of ram or I should buy the same exact ones ? Specs: CPU: AMD X6 1055t right now is it is OC to 3.2ghz Mobo:Asus Crosshair Formula IV Psu Corsair TX650 More about : upgrading ram | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove compulsivebuilder Memory Expert July 24, 2011 7:57:59 AM You can slow the timings down - if you buy an 8GB kit that runs 8-8-8-24, you can slow the CAS 7 RAM down to the slower timings. Or you can run the 8GB kit alone - that would let you use 1600MHz or faster RAM, which you can't do if you keep the 1333MHz RAM in the machine. | Report abuse ipenguins July 24, 2011 5:58:28 PM compulsivebuilder said:You can slow the timings down - if you buy an 8GB kit that runs 8-8-8-24, you can slow the CAS 7 RAM down to the slower timings.
