Let's face it. You are upset that it works, aren't you? You really need to turn that frown upside down and start encouraging instead of discouraging
You seem to be misunderstanding my posts - by choice I suspect
. Perhaps this is because in the past you have been incorrect about DDR3 RAM performance and you were offended when your own test data proved you to be wrong, so you are trying to insult me to soothe your bruised ego. Making the discussion personal does NOT change reality and is counterproductive to the discussion so you should refrain from this as previously advised
... Discuss the subject matter like a mature adult. Don't hate on people for correcting your technical mistakes.
As my original post in this thread stated - mixing of DDR3 RAM is a crapshoot
. The point is not what you paid for the RAM, the point is that sometimes it works without issues at slower speeds and sometimes it does not work at all - as many people have confirmed.
This is reality and insulting me doesn't change reality. Obviously for a guy who harps on how important DDR3 RAM speed is for performance, it's silly to run your 2133 MHZ. RAM at 1667 MHz., isn't it, especially when the default RAM speed on your FX CPU is 1866 MHz.?
If a person had to spend money to buy new RAM to add to existing RAM and the two did not function together - as has been the case for many, then it would make more sense for them to buy one matched, tested DDR3 RAM Kit at the current low prices to insure hassle free operation. If you have DDR3 RAM laying around that you want to try mixing, there is no cost liability so go for it. Edited by AMD4ME - 4/24/12 at 7:11am
