When you mix and match the RAMs you'll get an intermediate speed.
When you OC the RAM it's going to go upward equally on all the Slots, it's a gap that you can never close.
Suggestion, especially since it's an Asus board, sell the 1333's and get another pair of 1600s.
Thanks for the input. If that is the case, do you guys recommend to get
2x4gb and having the other 2 slots open so I can upgrade later with another RAM when I need it?
This case will probably cause the same issue as I have now though, lol.
I am currently using the rig for daily activities and light gaming.. I just have too many tabs opened in Chrome and I need more RAM to compensate that..
Well, 2 X 4GB sticks would be a better option anyday since it allows for further upgrades, and no, I don't think you'll have the same problem that you're having now with the timings when you go in for another upgrade later 'cos these RAMs...4GB single slots isn't something a lot of people buy, it's not as common as the 2GB sticks. Thus the availability of the same model of the 4GB stick RAM is going to be the same even after a year..... most probably.
Thanks for the reply all.
I guess I am going to buy 2x4 GB first (1.5V !! 1600 Mhz and CAS 9 at least) , stick it inside my rig with 2x2gb and then sell my 2x2gb...
Hopefully it is not hard to sell it on CL..
