    Re: Ram Question

    Just to clarify, are you adding to your current system, or replacing? and do you mean 4x4 kit =16GB?

    Re: Ram Question

    RAM sticks of different sizes are usually discouraged. They will most likely work, but drop from Dual-Channel to Single. This halves your memory access bandwidth affecting performance.

    Since this thread was started a while ago, did you end up buying them?

    Re: Ram Question

    Hi, I recently changed the CPU, RAM and motherboard, the problem is that motherboard specs show that support DDR 3 / 800 / 1066 / 1333, but until now I did not succeed make it run only in 1066 Mhz , but of course I want to run in 1333Mhz , I have Kingmax RAM at 1333 MHz, if I can help someone to make it run at 1333 Mhz,I tried everithing on bios, I put some links with pictures with bios and CPU-z .

    Re: Ram Question

    Hi Florin, welcome to PCPer!

    My recommendation would be to start a new thread in the memory forum and not add onto the bottom of this one. You will get more responses that way from people who are more familiar with your hardware than I am.

    Good luck
