Gents,

 

I know it's not recommended to mix and match sets but I'm looking for info on others doing so successfully. I currently have CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF running flawlessly with bios version 5001 on this board and am looking to add another 4GB set "Corsair Dominator 4GB (2x2GB), PC2-8500 (DDR2-1066), CM2X2048-8500C5D"

 

(Set already purchased and running fine http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145197)

 

 

(Set Im looking at link http://www.ebay.com/itm/Corsair-Dominator-4GB-2x2GB-PC2-8500-DDR2-1066-CM2X2048-8500C5D-240-Pin-/222131219764?hash=item33b80d6d34:g:ekMAAOSwn8FXR8hD)

 

I'm trying to extend the life of this PC as an upgrade right now is not doable so I want to know the chances that these sets will play well together. Both sets have the same revision and voltage/timing settings and both were "matched sets" at the time but I'm a little concerned adding the second set will introduce instability into the system and as of right now the set I have passes memtest fine.

 

Since this MB is so old it's hard to find memory at a reasonable price so I have to resort to ebay and such for the search. I'm aware I may have to downclock the ram and fiddle with voltages to get it stable.

 

Thoughts?

 

**Note** I don't want to waste money on that other set if the chances of them not working together is high....percentage wise.
