Will this work??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Currently I have 2x2gb Muskin Enhanced Blackline Cas 7 1600 and I was wondering what RAM I could match with this. I'm trying to expand to a total of 8gb since 4gb is finally not enough. Guild Wars 2 Beta weekend showed me that... Can I just mix in any other batch of 4gb RAM and will it run well? Here are my current CPU OC specs:

As long as the Ram is the Same MHZ as your current ram it should be fine

Do timings matter at all? I'm currently running at stock timings 7-9-7-24 but at 1444.

Finding some with similar timings might be difficult, I don't see many c7 1600Mhz kits new anymore. Might be able to get a kit that will let you tighten the timings a bit to match, or worst comes to worst loosen the timings of the old kit a bit & run the timings of the new kit.
A decent c8 kit or something should let you match the timings of the old kit with any luck.

Agreed , finding Low timing RAM is getting kinda hard , im glad DDR3 RAM came down in price , but its not even worth trying to buy DDR2 anymore

You guys think it would be cheaper/easier to just get a Samsung 8gb kit and relegate my current set to the HTPC?
