RAM rating causing issues?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I currently use a 4GB stick which is rated at 1600 Mhz , however the official page for i3 2100 says its compatible with 1333 and 1066 Mhz of RAM

Is this the cause of multiple problems with my motherboard , processor and PSU , which seem to occur every now and then?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Very unlikely the issue unless the ram is failing. Can you explain your issues a little better ?

There have been system restarts , BSODs , shutdowns , harddisk failing electrically , and a entire PSU and mother board going defective!

hmmm , now plan to buy Crucial Ballistix 2 X 4GB , would it be a good idea to couple it with the 4 Gb G.Skill and then use it ?

Again , all three would be 1600 Mhz and processor remains the same

are the clocks the same as well ? i assume its 9-9-9-24 ? I dnt see an issue if the MHZ and clocks are the same however a lot of people only run matching sets of ram.

Better off just buying a single 4GB like your current one to match it,if you use 3 dims it will not run in dual channel mode,which is faster.Unless you are encoding or something there is no benefit to run 12GB vs 8GB of RAM.

Who rated it for 1600 MHz, the maker of its chips or the maker of the module. It matters.
