Hi all,

 

Kind of a silly question but I was looking to add a bit more ram to my system as the last upgrade I did wasn`t enough. I have 16gb of hyperX Fury 3200 ram  and I want to add another 16gb of the same ram but just with RGB.

 

Since the price difference is pretty small I was about to get it but then I realised that the voltage was also different. So I thought it may be better to make sure it is/isn`t an option before buying.

 

Thanks!

There shouldn't be a problem with combining them, but it wouldn't be ideal running the lower voltage RAM at the higher voltage. However there is also another difference: the second one has a CAS Latency of 16 as opposed to 18, which probably explains the higher voltage – and it would probably run at the looser timings with the lower voltage.

Thanks for the explanation! I will stick to something that's almost identical then, the RGB life will have to wait :)

You could try switching from Chrome to Firefox, then you might not need the upgrade!   :P  :ph34r: :P :D

I ended up getting one recommended by playtech that when running XMP will run at the same spec. Although not using chrome is the answer to all things RAM related I needed a bit more to use after effects. This should keep me running until the next big build!

 

Thanks!
