i have 12 gb ram in my configuration but rarely even go pasted 4gb according to (resource manager). I have 3 4gb sticks, 2 are corsair and one is gskill. All sticks have the same specs but I've heard that mixing different brands isn't good. Will my PC run better, if i remove the gskill and stick with 8gb? I appreciate the help.
1. 12GB would only ever be completely used under heavy video editing/rendering or extreme multitasking. What do you primarily use your PC for?
2. Well the problems start when you mix RAM speeds. If you mix speeds with different sticks, all sticks will be bumped down to the lowest speed. I've never heard anything about different brands being a problem...
The PC is mainly being used for heavy internet use, bluray, and light gaming. Cool, i believe all sticks have the same ram speed. Would you recommend i go down to 8gb or it wont make a difference if i leave all 12?
