Can you Run 2gb of 1066mhz and 2gb 800mhz of ram together

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if you can run 4 sticks of corsair dominator DDR2 ram together?

They are 2GB of 1066mhz ram 2x1 sticks and 2x1 sticks of 800mhz ram?

why is this in GPU's?

 

and yes you can but the 1066 will need to run at the 800mhz speed.

Can you overclock the 800mhz ram to 1066 and run them both at 1066?

i dont think you can oc one set of RAM sticks without it oc the other.

But you will start overclocking all of them from 800MHz.

what about the associated timings? would they be different as well?

 

Easiest solution is under clock the 1066 modules to 800.

 

The try to overclock them together?!

They will underclock automatically when you put slower sticks in.

They will run at the lowest speed of pair.

Techincally it should work however as already mentioned you'll get the lowest speed. Having said that mixing memory manufacturers and speeds is is never advisable if there is another alternative. Sometimes this can cause more instability problems and headaches than it's worth.

And lets not forget as I pointed out to him in his other thread he will not really notice any real time difference between speeds anyway.
