Integral RAM and Different speeds Tags: RAM Crucial Components Last response: February 9, 2012 10:58 PM in Components Share seumas_beathan February 9, 2012 9:30:59 PM Hey guys, I currently have 2gb of crucial 667 mhz ram and would like an upgrade. I have been looking at some integral 800 mhz http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Integral-IN2T2GNXNFX-DDR2-2GB... I havnt heard of this brand before so i was wondering if any of you could shed some light? Also could i use this with the crucial ram or is it not good to have ram running at different speeds? Thanks in advance More about : integral ram speeds mcnumpty23 February 9, 2012 9:42:18 PM your pc will slow down the ram to the lower speed though your motherboard may not support the 800mhz module for example if i put 1333mhz ddr3 and 1600mhz ddr3 in my motherboard it will work fine but all the modules will clock down to 1333mhz so only if your motherboard supports the integral memory would it work--but all modules would be at the same speed--ie 667mhz not half at 667mhz and half at 800mhz seumas_beathan February 9, 2012 9:44:48 PM My mobo supports the module. So have you heard of integral. Is it a good brand?

At first i thought it would be some cheap peice of crap but reveiws seem to be very good mcnumpty23 February 9, 2012 10:19:50 PM why not just buy identical to what you have direct from crucial? definately going to be compatible then http://www.crucial.com/uk/index.aspx seumas_beathan February 9, 2012 10:21:22 PM Because i dont want more 667 ram and their 800 or 1066 mhz ram is very expensive and doesnt get very good reveiws Brett928S2 February 9, 2012 10:58:21 PM Hi I own computer shops in the UK.... Its not as easy as that.... Sometimes different speed and make ram will just NOT work together.....they do NOT aall just slow down to the lower speed... They may not even boot the machine.... Get the same speed as a minimum. All the best Brett Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumG skill different ram speeds ok?
