Hello, I'm wondering if you could help me with this before I burn my computer biggrin.gif 

Currently I have 2x 4gb memory and wanted to know if I can put another 2x 4gb memory but with a slightly different voltage, one pair is 1.5V and the other is 1.65V, both sets are hyperX but not the exact same as you can see.

here are some pics of the memories stickers with the info + my mainboard if you need them

I want to know if this can work and help me to get 16gb or I need to do something first and if its dangerous for any of my other components(or if its worth the risk in any case).

 

Let me know if you need some aditional information to help me out!

thanks in advanced and sorry for any typos english is not my mother tongue.

No, I would not do this.

 

Mixing different RAM, especially with different voltages can cause big problems and lots of BSODs.

 

Try to always use the same type of RAM. I would suggest buying a RAM kit if you are trying to reach 16gb.

Intel specifies max voltage 1.5V anyway. You may use both but set voltage manually to 1.5V.

Hi,

 

The dimms match on this timings DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9 @1.5V that is also supported by the motherboard so they should work.


• Please do not PM me asking for support. Post on the forums instead it will increases the chances of getting help for your problem by one of us.
• Posts in the Malware section that are not replied to within 4 days will be closed. PM me or a moderator to reactivate.
