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)

what can I do? i mean can i install first the 1600 and then 1333? can they work all together? I have asus motherboard p6t deluxe,it can take till 24 gb of RAM

thank you very much!

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 !

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

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
