Default Memory Mixing

I'm just curious if mixing:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227181
with:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227178

would cause any problems. glancing at it I didn't see any differences. I have an ASUS C2Duo board PB95 Deluxe if I remember right

same timings/speed/volage/manufacturer.

they should be ok together.

in my experience, ive found that mixing different manufacturers is the biggest problem causer.

Yeah don't mix, you will lose any serious overclocking abilities.

don't mix manufactures, or mix these two different types of Ocz mem?

it really only looks like the heat spreader is different.

the only reason why I ask is the kind I bought are out of stock and had the urge to get them now. I can always wait.

its not like I have a 64 bit OS that can use 4GB...

Those look identical to me other than the heat spreaders. I have 4 of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227178

and the only thing I can tell you other than mixing that set should be fine is that you do want to get a ram cooler for them. Oh, and also that you will never reach their rated speed with only 2.1v. Oh, and also since you will have all 4 slots filled, you probably wont be able to reach their rated speed regardless of what voltage you use. Oh, and also, since you will have all 4 slots in use, don't skimp on the fan; I got that Corsair 3 fan unit that snaps right over the ram. It's large enough that it provides good air to all 4 sticks and works very well. And one last thing, these sticks go up to 670Mhz 3-3-3-6 1T with 2.2v. They may go even higher at 1T but that's as high as I've tried. The highest I can run all 4 at 2T is about 1056Mhz 4-4-4-12 with 2.2v.

I have had them running faster with 2.4v but I fried a stick doing that, thus now I use the cooler.

Great ram!

Default Re: Memory Mixing

I would fail memtest86 everytime I tried to mix my Samsung and Corsair, in single or dual channel mode, in evey combination/order i could think of. I was trying to get 2GB in my system, but it wouldnt fly

Its a pretty basic rule that you shouldnt mix manufacturers, and if you decide to try, grab a copy of memtest86 and run at least 1 full cycle for each combination. It only takes 1 error to let you know that its not going to work out.

If you have two different modules from the same manufacturer, use the timings form the slowest module.
