Hi, simple question, can I mix 2 2gb RAM 1600 Mhz with 1 4gb RAM 1333 MHz??? (all the same timings)

I know I wont get the 1600 MHz but I'm improving my PC and I want to know if I can keep all 3 memories connected until I buy 2 more 2gb 1600 MHz memories...

thanks :D

Its better not to mix, but it mostly works fine.

It will just clock the 1600MHz to 1333MHz.

That's all : )

There will not be any visible improvement between those speeds.

Maybe 1 more RAM stick of the same 1333MHz RAM would be better for u.

U can always try to overclock it to 1600MHz.

It fairly easy these days.

I think my motherboard doesn't support RAM OC it's an ASUS P8H77-V LE...

That is what I'm trying to decide... I have not bought the RAM yet, should I buy 1 4Gb 1333 MHz instead of the 2x 2GB 1600? is there any real improvement between the 1333 and 1600? I was planning to finally have 4x 2Gb 1600MHz, should I keep my 4gb memory and get another 1333MHz 4gb one?

Whats your CPU?

RAM speed comparison - We're looking at a less than 2% difference from the fastest to the slowest.

great memory, great price, saddly I'm from Chile and I don't think newegg ship to this country, and if they do, I think the price will be a lot higher. Here the price of that is around $100 so I think you will understand that my pocket is far away from the real good stuff :D 

...That's the reason that I'm buying one of those options that I said... and my CPU is an Intel i5 3450 3.1Ghz

thanks anyway for that benchmark, I'll just buy another 1333MHz 4Gb...
