Will this give me more ram without slowing down?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i want more RAM. i now have 2 sticks of 8GB DDR4 3000Mhz memory. i found two random 2GB DDR3 sticks laying around.

 

would the 2GB sticks bottleneck my good ones because it has way less clock speed becasue i read online that the other ones could be bottlenecked to 1.3Ghz

There's no motherboard that supports both DDR3 and DDR4 so it won't work

try jamming the ddr3 in there as hard as you can and let us know if there's anything left of your motherboard

 

DDR3 and DDR4 are not physically or electrically compatible. I'm not aware of any boards that can use both (some boards supported DDR2 and DDR3) but even if there are, they will ONLY support DDR3 OR DDR4, not both at the same time

ok thanks for the info, although you didn't need to be so passive agressive with it
