Mixing different size rams RUSH!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is it okay to mix different size rams(compatibility)

I have a 2 X 2GB 1333MHz cl9 ram from kingston @ 1.5V -kvr1333d3n9/29
but i might buy a stick of 8GB crucial ballistix sport cl9 1600(going to run it at 1333) @1.5V -BLS8G3D1609DS1S00

Will i be able to put them into dual channel mode?

also, will 8GB of ram be enough for gaming (1080p) if yes then should i get 2 X 4GB rams instead?

Someone please help me out here. I'm going to buy something tom and might get some ram modules on the way

Any help will be appreciated

Hey ya

Well, yes you can mix sizes however it's never a great idea. I'd just stick 2x4gb sticks in and be done with it.

Incidentally, the more sticks you put in the higher the stress on your IMC which could hinder your overclock.

Oh yes I forgot to mention that my suckish mobo only has 2 ram slots so i would be removing 1 2GB module to make a total of 10GB(8gb + 2GB)

Don't do it in that case

What will happen is you'll have 2gb + 2GB running in DDR, then the other 6Gb in single channel.

Just go with the 2x4Gb kit and be done with it.
