And if u are mixing, it is best if the RAM is made by the same RAM maker. 1333MHz vs 2000MHz is big difference and the mobo may have a problem to balance it. I would not do that, but it still may work fine. Its up to the mobo : )) Related resources Can i use two different types of DDR ram - Forum Two different types of RAM - Forum Can i use two types of ram at one time - Forum Different types of RAM in the same motherboard , can this be achieved? - Forum Matching Different Types of RAM and Gigabyte MOBO Form Factor - Forum Can't find your answer ?
