Mixing two 1.65v RAM sticks on Z77 and overclocking?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I just purchased the 3570k and an Asus Z77 Motherboard which is due to arrive next week. I didn't buy new RAM because there really is nothing wrong with the sticks I have now. But once I get my new cpu and mobo I was planning to mix two brands of my 1.65v RAM onto the Z77 motherboard and overclock/reduce timings. I was planning on putting in 2x2Gb sticks of Corsair Dominators and 2x2Gb sticks of Elpida Hypers. I'm just wondering will the voltages or different sticks cause problems when trying to overclock the RAM?

Then you will be fine. Always make sure the speed matches or exceeds the requirements for the system (or if an already built system, the current set of RAM)
