Citizen and 1PW... I have a similar question. I should know the answer and believed I did until today. But here's the short story. I have a gigabyte GA-F2A78M-D3H motherboard and I bumped the existing 8gb RAM (Elpida, 2x4gb DDR3 1333, PC3-10600) up to 16gb using Crucial Ballistix (2x4gb SPORT, DDR3 1600, PC3-12800). I put the Crucial in Channels 1 and 3 and I put the Elpida in channels 2 and 4. The motherboard supports DDR3 2133/1866/1600/1333 MHz memory modules. I have a couple of questions...
1- Obviously, do you see any possible challenges for me using this combination? If so , what would be the best way to "mix" these sticks, if at all?
2- Are there any dramatic lasting negative or destructive issues that might occur if I used this matchup for gaming, high end computer use, long term, etc.?
If so would it be more appropriate to upgrade to the Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1600 or would you recommend staying at the DDR3 1333 that came stock with the motherboard and add an additional 8gb of that series?
Chipset AMD A78, Processor is an AMD A10 6800K APU with Radeon HD graphics. GPU is an AMD Sapphire Toxic R9 270X 2gb RAM, Power Supply is a Rosewill 850 W.
Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
