The question I have is regarding memory speed (1333 vs 1600 (OC)). As you can see I currenlty have 2x2GB 1600 that are running at 1600, if I were to buy the same RAM I have now to make it 4x2GB, filling all 4 slots with the G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 1600, will I still be able to run at 1600, or will it knock it down to 1333? My only reserve is that I won't be able to get 16GB.
In real life aplications you don't see the diferences, just in benchmarks.In some aplications is important the quantity.
Okay, thanks for the help!
To go back to my first question, if my board is native 1333, am I able to run 4X2GB and keep it at 1600? For some reason I remember reading that if I used 4 sticks of RAM it would default back down to 1333 instead of keeping it at 1600 (OC).
You can run at 1600Mhz just with overclock. Native will be set automatic by your mobo at 1333Mhz.I recommended you to buy the same RAM like your for a better compatibility. And in the future if you change you PC you can keep the RAM.
