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

Yeah you're better off with the G.Skill RAM you already have as it is faster.

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

Ok, one thing I don't recommend is mixing RAM kits.

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
