Adding an additional 2GB-- different brand

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of Ripjaws @ 1600, timing 9-9-9-24-2N and I'm looking into purchasing a single 2GB stick. I'm looking into this A-DATA stick:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-450-_-Product

The timing's 9-9-9-24 and the voltage is 1.65v. My Ripjaws run 1600 @ 1.5v. Any tips?

I've run an ADATA pair with a G.Skill pair and it worked okay, albeit without any serious overclocking. However, if you use three sticks, you would be running in single-channel mode. I'd probably just get another pair of Ripjaws if I were you.

NewEgg is also giving me 15% off any RAM for no reason so i may just do that.

Yeah get identical rams - so you can run dual channel - much better .. Best of luck!

1. Different voltages is bad
2. Not dual channel, you will lose bandwidth & performance will kerplunk
