Solved Is this mixture safe? (RAM) Tags: Memory RAM Product Last response: December 15, 2012 12:24 AM in Memory Share lghost December 14, 2012 11:46:30 PM Hey I built my computer a few years ago with 4 GB (2 modules) of "Sector 5" G Series PC3-10666 1333 MHZ I'm going to get a new video card tomorrow and figured I would grab the other 4GB while I'm at Microcenter. They no longer have the exact ram but they do have, "G Series 'Sector 5' edition 4GB DDR3-1600 (PC-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 2GB Memory Modules)" Can I combine these two with no ill effects? Thanks in advance More about : mixture safe ram Best solution rolli59 a c 248 } Memory December 15, 2012 12:11:04 AM In most cases they will work together but if you want to be sure why not get 2x4GB (problem free) and sell of your old sticks on ebay. Share lghost December 15, 2012 12:16:54 AM Sounds like a plan. Thanks Do you think it is worth it to get DDR3-1866 & PC315000 ? I was looking at these, http://www.microcenter.com/product/396999/Intel_Extreme...(PC3-15000)_CL_9_Desktop_Memory_Kit_(Two_4GB_Memory_Modules) I want to stick with Patriot just because I haven't had any problems with the current sticks. m 0 l Related resources Memory ram mixture kit - Forum Mixture of different speed of ram will affect? - Forum My new RAM required BIOS Overcklock.
