2x4@2400 Mhz combo with 2x2 or 2x4

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Greetings guys, I didn't want to start a new thread for my specific question but i decided it might be best to start one rather than resurrect something old.

I am currently running a mild OC-ed FX 8350 on a M5A99FX PRO R2.0

Now i am using 2x4GB 2400mhz ram -> http://www.geilmemory.com/products/showSpec/id/392
It is however a 11-13-13-35-45 according to HWinfo and i want to add some ram.

My question that i can't find a descent enough answer is can i add some other 2400 mhz ram at cas 11 like the best i have found available is G.SKILL RipjawsX F3-2400C11D-8GXM that is 11-13-13-31-2N (by the best i mean matching my speeds)

Is it possible?
Is it risky?
Would it work or it is a matter of luck?

I know that maybe changing to 2x8 better CAS is way better but i can't afford such an upgrade right now as i am planning a GPU upgrade to RX 480 and 2x8GB good are out of the question at this stage.
Or should i stick to 2x4 and save up for 2x8 that will eventually leave me with 2x4 of unusable ram. I don't rly like to have hardware not being used biggrin.gif

You're only looking at 4 timings. There are over twenty that have to match.
Many of them you can't see, and manufacturers don't tell you what they are.
You buy the memory, put it in your computer and test it to see them.

Here, download and install RAMMom and have a look at your memory and you'll see almost all of its specs and timings.
