gandalfg8 Posted December 23, 2015 Share Posted December 23, 2015 I've got a PC that was built about two years ago, using an i7-3770 CPU in an Asus Z77 Sabertooth motherboard with a CML8GX3M2A1866C9R 8GB memory set fitted and running Win7 Pro 64 bit. I've just bought a new set of the same memory in order to increase the total to 16GB and was surprised to find that the new memory was version 3.24 whilst the original was version 8.16. My first assumption was that the version number would be date related and came here just to find out whether or not this would matter. However, reading other posts with similar questions it now seems a lot more complicated than I was expecting, with it being suggested that different versions of the same part number are likely to be incompatible. I've also seen the comments that memory sets are only warranted as tested, so theoretically adding another identical set even of the same version could be asking for trouble, but no reference was made to version numbers when I bought these and I'd appreciate any comments as to just how likely it is that I'm going to see any problems in practice. I'm not looking to overclock the memory or anything else, I'm just looking for a stable system to handle some fairly heavy CPU loading and for the short time I've had the new memory installed all seems to be OK. I've seen previous replies stating that supply voltages and other settings might need to be changed with more memory fitted but again I'm not sure if this applies anyway or just if overclocking.
