Mixing Dominators with Vengeance

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello.

My rig currently has this:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...66&CatId=4527#

I decided to upgrade a bit and add another dual channel 2x2 kit. But the prices of the 8gig kits are so ridiculous now, it just doesn't make sense to buy a 4g kit. So i chose this for an upgrade:

http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-8gb...2a1600c9b.html

Assuming i can tweak them both to work on the same voltage and same timings, will it be an issue to use both 4gig and 8gig kits together?

I am using 4gb(2gx2) corsair dominator and 4gb(2gbx2) ram from my gateway together right now in my rig. They have been working fine for some time now, so I don't think It should be a problem at all.

Do NOT Mix RAM kits of different rated speed and/or timings and voltage. There most likely WILL be complications.

Thx for the input ppl. Decided not to mix it, unnecessary troubles. Anyway, since the 16GB kits are basically so ridiculously cheap, i'll simply replace my Dominators for a 4x4 Vengeance.
