MSI GT70 Dragon Edition 2 - new RAM at 1.5V

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi overclockers ..

I'm thinking of expansion memory chips in my GT70 DragonEdition2, I'm interested in modules CORSAIR 2X8GB 1600MHz CL10 DDR3 SODIMM 1.5V "CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10".

Can I add these memory chips to the present one ?
Can I mix modules of different delays and different volatges ?

Why not ?
Faster memory modules adapt to the slower, as they will go slower.
Do I understand correctly functioning of DDR3 policy ?

It would run at the fastest possible which would be your slower ram, however that doesnt mean that the new modules are capable of running at that speed and timings. So in short, it could work, but if not then you have a rather expensive paper weight

Ok, i try this CORSAIR 2X8GB 1600MHz CL10 DDR3 SODIMM 1.5V "CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10" modules, maybe it work.
If not, i sell these oryginal modules, and buy another CORSAIR 2X8GB 1600MHz CL10 DDR3 SODIMM 1.5V "CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10".

In sum:
What can I expect if they are not compatible?
What program should i use to test their proper cooperation?
