Hello all, new to the forums but have been following for a bit. Enjoy Linus TT on YouTube, so I figured what better place to ask for help then here!

 
On my Ryzen 7 3700X PC I have 2x8 gb Corsair 3200 mhz CL16 Samsung b die ram. From the purchase I took out the 2x8 gb Adata 3000 mhz CL16 ram. I've seen videos about mixing RAM and also different speeds so I put them all into the PC with everything turning out good. I even ended up getting a overclock to 3600 MHz cl16-20-20-38-16.
 
My question though is how should I properly allocate the RAM modules to the dimm slots to disperse the unevenness properly?

You want one set on slot 2 and 4, and the other on 1 and 3. It doesn't matter set takes which.

Thank you Ninja. I suppose one more question now lol. Would you consider one "set", one of the Corsair and one of the Adata mixed together? Or keep them sperated? Right now I have Corsair on 1 and 3 and the Adata on 2 and 4.

Sorry should have been more clear, a set would be the same RAM, so the corsair pair are a set and the Adata are the other.

That's correct; that is how you want to install them.

This way it is running in dual channel correctly.

Thank you rascal and ninja. I see YouTube videos and forums about being able to mix memory but nobody ever really says whether they should stick to their own channel or not. So thank you for replying, helping, and confirming on my first post ever here!
