Hello.

 

I currently have a R5 3500X and GTX 1660 Super, with 2X4GB CL 14 RAM, only dual channel motherboard (b450m)

I thought it would give me microstutters or limit my fps on modern games due to their heavy graphics

I watched some vids on YouTube which shows 12GB ram delivers more or less the same performance as 16GB, and i thought 16GB is overkill so i thought about getting 12GB and i am on a tight budget

The only problem is, I don't know much about rams and i have some questions i would like to ask

 

Is it okay to mix different frequencies ram?

Like, i currently have ddr4 2400 CL14 4GB, and i want to mix it with different cls and timings, let's say a ddr4 2400 8GB CL17 (for example)

And i will overclock both to 2666 in XMP

Will it run fine without problems like bsod or black screen when booting?

i am fine with some fps losses, it's just i want to get rid of those microstutters....

 

Thank you in advance

16GB is NOT OVERKILL

 

If you want Dual Channel then pick 8gb + 4gb with same Clock Speed

 

Only issue is, you will have to set them manually. XMP will not work

Oh, i thought it is overkill because i see lots of game benchmark vids that uses ram less than 10gb (except battlefield 5, where it uses around 10gb~11gb)

and i don't plan on playing while using other apps or streaming...

I might be mistaken with what those numbers show though, pardon me.

 

And thank you for the information!!
