Mixing Memory for RamDisk

For the last couple of weeks I have been reading up about Ramdisk, and with mixed reviews. I was going to purchase extra memory to have 8gb ramdisk, but with my ssd, I wasn't sure if it would be beneficial. I do the occasional Adobe Premiere, but mostly gamiing.

Here are the specs that are relevant:

AMD Phenom x4 @4ghz
Agility 3 240gb on Sata III
Asus Sabretooth
8gb (2x4) Corsair XMS3 1600

The reason I have to mix memory is bcuz Newegg is currently only has 1 ram stick available for the memory that I bought, so I have to mix, but it's with another Corsair batch.

I have

But, I would have to purchase this. It runs at a higher speed but I know my mobo would automatically adjust. My main concern is would the memory timins and voltage adjust to be compatible?

  1. Best answer
    They have the same voltage and everything will be done by mobo anyway.
  2. I use the RAMdisk, what program are u going to use?
  3. I know there is a lot of debate about the number of write/rewrites an SSD can handle, and it's much better than when they first started out, but I really want to prolong the longevity of my SSD.

    Watching HD movies and gaming can be a couple gb worth of write and rewrites.

    Like I said, I mostly game, movies, the occasional adobe, and the occasional audio convert. I was reading how I could have my browsers temp be in a ram disk. Nobody has money to burn or throw away, but I want to make sure it would be a good investment.
