please help me out with ram compatibility


Recommended Posts

My motherboard is Asus EX 320 gaming motherboard - Link

processor is Amd Ryzen 3 2200G , zotac geforce gtx 1050Ti

and finally my RAM is G.SKILL Ripjaws F4-3000C15D-8GVRB 8GB(1 x 8)



Although my current RAM speed is 3000Mhz it can't go beyond 2400Mhz because that's the speed supported by my Asus Ex 320 gaming motherboard, also in the beginning i found in windows task manager that my ram current speed was 2133 MHz, then later found that is the default speed of a DDR4 memory and changed it manually to 2400Mhz in bios settings, and also found that the advertised latency of my ram is 15-16-16-35 but in CPU-z it shows




So now i am thinking of adding extra 8GB RAM to pair with my G.SKILL Ripjaws F4-3000C15D-8GVRB 8GB, but unfortunately it has gone out of stock, neither available online, so in my location easily available 8GB DDR4 ram is this

Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 LPX 2400MHz C16 RAM Kit for X99 Chipset (CMK8GX4M1A2400C16R)


, i went through the specification of this product and found that its speed is 2400MHz, it's latency is 16-16-16-39 and 1.2V.


But my current ram config is this (CPU-z) ,my current ram advertised speed is 3000MHz (but it can't go beyond 2400MHz since that's the speed my ASUS Ex 320 Gaming motherboard supports),advertised latency is 15-16-16-35 and 1.35V






So Please let me know whether this (Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 LPX 2400MHz C16 RAM Kit for X99 Chipset (CMK8GX4M1A2400C16R) ) RAM would work fine with my already existing RAM(G.SKILL Ripjaws F4-3000C15D-8GVRB 8GB(1 x 8)) on my Asus Ex 320 Gaming motherboard without causing any issues.

It's never recommended to mix modules that haven't been tested together, even when they're the same part / version. No one can tell for sure if they'd work together or not without trying it.


To ensure a stable system, it's recommended to replace what you have instead of adding to i t.

I second what Technobeard said. It's always best to replace everything at once. The issue is that while timing, speed, and latency may be the same, the smallest variations in the hardware can cause headaches. By purchasing all at once, with one manufacturer, it reduces the possibility of issues from production variance and other variables.
