Mixing different RAM sticks F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR with F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Dual channel 2x4GB G.SKILL kit reference F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR and want to upgrade to 16GB, since I can't find the same kit new or used, i looked for he most similar that is being sold now.

Its the 2x4GB F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL kit, and knowing that you should keep your memories as equal as possible I looked at the specs and they seems to be exactly the same.

Is it ok to use these 2 kits together? Has anyone an ideia of what percentage of performance I would loose over exactly equal dimms?

I don't play that much, but would like my system to be as fast as possible.

It should work just fine. Be sure to set them to the same specs in bios tho


Just say @Boinbo if you need me! I'll be limited to GPU, CPU, general discussion, peripherals, and new builds and planning though. I'm a potato.

System specs:

Laptop with core i3 4030u 

Integrated HD 4400 GPU 113MB

768p 14" screen
