Ok I have 2GB of DDR2 RAM @800 MHz running in my Mobo for 2 years now.
Yesterday I got another stick of 2GB DDR2 RAM @667 MHz (By mistake)
So I dont really want to go through the return product process on Flipkart,
Now I am aware that my 800 Mhz Ram will downclock to 667 Mhz
My question is....
Would the new 677 Mhz ram mixed with 800 mhz ram have any problems with my pc?
I know both the rams wont run at their maximum capability but still would the difference be that BIG?
Also I would still be benefited by 4 GB of ram than 2GB even if their clock speeds are different right?
i'm running different speeds of RAM in 3 stick and never gave a problem.
In the past I ran a 533MHz & 667MHz together. I didn't had any problems either
But one should, go through it knowing that some motherboards are very sensitive to mismatched ram & they might just run into some issues. I believe that's why RAM are sold in kits.
Anyways, You can give it a try, it'll most probably work. If it doesn't, get it replaced.
