Hi there ;) I have 6gb RAM corsair 1333mhz (tr3x6g1333c9) 9-9-9-24 it's 3x2 (triple)

someone gave me 6gb RAM corsair 16000mhz (tr3x61600c8) 8-8-8-24 again 3-2 (triple)

  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardwaare Forums,
    If they will play together at all (they might not), the 1600MHz will run at 1333MHz with 9-9-9 timings. I personally would just run the 1600MHz ram and give someone else (or sell) the 1333 stuff. Unless you are constantly opening/using multiple programs, I don't know of a need for more than 6GB really.

    Thank you very much for your reply! I tried all of them and worked, bios recognize 12gb... I play many games and I already saw differences...are you certain that i should remove the 1333mhz ram? thanx again you're very helpful !
  3. ps..this site rocks!! ;)
  4. Nope, if they are working happily together, keep them going. I only suggested keeping the one set because of possible compatibility issues and the fact that the 1600MHz has better timings - seems there aren't compatibility issues so you should be okay running 12GB

    Thanx mate! you're like a God to me lol ;) one last question please...you say that the 1600MHz has better timings...but it has 8-8-8-24...it's lower than the other ram 9-9-9-24...Can you please enlighten me? ;)
  6. Ram timings, also known as Cas Latency represents a delay (in clock cycles) before the request for data is fulfilled. Lower is quicker - less delay
