  1. Look for a memory "qvl" file on the webpage for your board at gigabyte's website. See if any adata is listed; only a few models of ram are listed for any board. They can't test them all. Just because yours isn't listed doesn't mean it won't work. And if you're trying to overclock the cpu, set the ram speed manually to a lower speed, such as 1066 before you attempt to overclock the cpu. I set a limit of 25% for my overclock for stability and low heat (I use mostly the stock heatsink). Adata may not work with your board. I use gskill, corsair, kingston, and patriot ram in a variety of boards. I suggest you look for a vender that carries these brands or use ebay.
  2. Hello;
    Thanks for answer

    Yes i found ADATA's name in qvl list of GIGABYTE x38t-dq6 with out mention the bus or CL of memory; nevertheless i want to now in a total how select memory's bus (1600 or 1333) my motherboard suport 1600 but my cpu suport 1333 if i select 1600 it can increas efficiency of my system or not (i dont want to overclock my computer), and CL(timing) of memory that is in uper bus with decreasing it's bus it's timing Decrease too, for example (ADATA 1600 CL: When work with CPU 1333 and its bus Decrease to 1333 what happened for it's CL:?)

    I appreciate your help.

    Mixing ram can be done, but your system will run all the ram at the slower speed. The difference in performance isn't noticable except in benchmarks. I didn't notice it; I downgraded to 1333 when going to 16 gb to save $10.
