Question Quick question

Hey guys, just have a quick question about ram, Right now im using Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT4G3D1339DS1S00 - Newegg.com. But i bought an SSD that came with this G.SKILL Value 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C11S-8GNT - Newegg.com. Will they be compatible or what? Will the two cause performance problems or anything? Thanks for the help in advance.

Default Re: Quick question

The memory will run at the speed of the slowest component. Keep the Crucial, although it is a bit slower, the performance difference is negated because of the dual channel whereas the Gskill will only operate in single channel mode.

Yes and no. It'll likely revert to single channel mode because each channel will be mismatched.
