Will adding this memory to my current increase performance in any way?

Hello, currently have a ASUS Z77 P something, I7 3770k and G.Skill Cas 9 8GB DDR3 1600MHz 1.5V memory, ASUS 7970 GPU.


Will this memory increase my performance in any way if I run it in the dual channel thingy?

Its a pretty good deal and I got some coupons/rewards at staples so its basically free.

    No this would be a downgrade, the Kingston memory would run at 1333mhz in a dual channel configuration and the memory you already have is running at 1600mhz in a dual channel config
  2. double post
  3. Yeah you're better off with the G.Skill RAM you already have as it is faster.
  4. the Crucial still wouldn't be better
  5. so I shouldn't buy the one I just linked?
    its the same speeds/cas/ddr/voltage just more

    I wasn't referring to replacing, just adding more, im currently at 8, and would want to buy the crucial to get 16

    i do a lot of photoshopping/zipping/etc
  6. Ok, one thing I don't recommend is mixing RAM kits.
  7. oh then yes that would be fine, Mixing modules usually isn't prefered but those two should work fine together.
    FYI i have mixed modules before
