Hi Team,

 

I have 4GB of Transcend ram Model Number "JM1333KLN-4G". Just a few days back i bought new ram of Kingston of 4GB with model number "KVR16N11S8/4".

 

When i plug my RAM to my PC i realize kingston RAM has frequency of 1600 and CL is 11 cycles, and Transcend has 1333 Frequency and CL is 9

cycles.

 

Will This affect my PC performance or stability or anything else??

 

Please Help.

 

Thanks You in advance.

 

 

Computer Config :

Processor : AMD Phenom II X6 1050T

MotherBoard : GA-880GM-USB3L

Yes, it sure can. For stability, use a matched set.

When you mix speeds of RAM they'll only operate at the slowest speed.

No i dont think you need to change anything your setup will work at the lowest available RAM speed and yours is 1333 the lowest and 1600 highest. And 1333 is not that low it's good.

 

It will be waste of money if you are going to invest in new RAM for an extra 267Mhz and scrap your old one.

 

Also remember what ever speed your Memory Bus works it will be fetched using FSB of CPU so really you also need to take your Processor's FSB [NorthBridge] motherboard circuit into consideration. [Yes unless if you are on HT or QPI ]

 

But overall i think it's waste of money nothing else :P
