4 ram @ 1333 32gb or 2 ram 2400mhz 16gb?

I have 2 1333 corsair vengeance 8gb modules and 2 2400 corsair vengence pro 8gb modules, now would it be better to set them at the lower speed or the higher speed, or just remove the weakest links?

MOBO: Z87-K
CPU: Intel i5-4670k 4.6ghz

  1. Personally, I wouldn't mix memory sticks with different timing unless you can match the timings of all aspects to the slower of the pairs. If this is mainly a gaming PC, most (all?) games are still 32 bit coded, which means they can't access more than 4 GB of memory. So I would probably go for the 2 x 2400MHZ sticks and save/sell the others.

    Ok thanks, I will sell them and buy two more 2400mhz sticks :3.
  3. Buy matched pairs and try to match the ones you have now. But there's no real need to beyond the 16GB you have at present. It won't help a lick in gaming. Everything past 4GB will just sit there unused unless you are multitasking while gaming. Not something I'd want to do... takes clock cycles away from the processor.
