Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello. I have a small problem. I have 16 GB off crucial ballistix elite 3466 MHz off ram in my ryzen 2700x system. Now i want to upgrade to 32gb but i can not find the same 3466mhz ram. I can find 3000mhz, 3200mhz, even 3600mhz. Can i put in idk 3000mhz ram and run all 4 sticks on 3000mhz and the same timings? Or will i need to sell current ram and buy all new 32gb kit. Thanks for help

In theory yes, in practice it may confuse the board and you'll have to manually enter the timings. You'll know when you try it

not smart coz even if first timings are the same, secondary and tetriary timings are never the same and will cause less stability or even unstability silently

thanks. dizs what a hassle is just to upgrade ram.

possible? yes. advisible? no.

 

if you do this, you'll need to find the full timing sheet for the 3000mhz ram, set all the sticks to those timings and run memtest86 to make sure it's not gonna fark off on you
