I always thought they had to be the same brand/speed etc to run in dual.

From what i understand they don't even need to be the same speed. The faster one will just clock down then go dual channel. Oblviously its still recomended to get to of the same if possible.

That's not true. Why don't you inform yourself about the topic before giving people advice about it:
