Upgrading from 2gb to 4gb ddr3...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have team xtreme ddr3 1333, and i am looking to upgrade to 4gb of memory. However, I cant find my current set of 1333 from xtreme on newegg. I see that g-skill has 2gb sticks of ddr3 1333 for less than 100 bucks...

My question is will there be trouble haveing 2 different manufacturers of the same type of memory in my system? Any other things I should keep in mind or anyone have other ideas? Thanks...

i would not recommend it , it is best to have all factory matched pairs,
at minimum same type and manufacture.

So having 2gb of team xtreme ddr3 and 2gb of g-skill ddr3 1333 would not run? Or is it just not recomended?

It will run...no question about that. The only main thing that would be affected would be overclocking due to the new set may have different timings. Of course you will most definately want to keep the speeds the same.

If i get a new set of g-skill, with 9-9-9-24 stock timings (which i believe is the same as the current xtreem ones) then I should be ok eh?

This is true also Cosair said aslong as you match the speeds your good. they only say stick with 1 manufacturer for the sake if something goes wrong and you have to RMA other than that he is right.
