Solved Is this mixture safe? (RAM) Tags: Memory RAM 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 | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Reply to lghost Register or log in to remove Best solution rolli59 Memory Master 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. | Report abuse Reply to rolli59 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. | Report abuse Reply to lghost cuecuemore December 15, 2012 12:20:14 AM Not worth it, IMO, as these are cheaper and perform just as well: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This is not to say that that is not a good kit, but the RAM I linked is godlike and super cheap. | Report abuse Reply to cuecuemore Related ressources Memory ram mixture kit - Forum Mixture of different speed of ram will affect? - Forum Will this mixture of components explode in my face? - Forum New RAM causing BSOD - Forum Computer works with 2 Ram sticks it freezes with 4 - Forum Ask the community Publish rolli59 Memory Master December 15, 2012 12:22:39 AM 1600MHz sort of looks to be the sweet spot on price/performance. | Report abuse Reply to rolli59 lghost December 15, 2012 12:23:54 AM Alright.
