hello

 

i have 8x CMX8GX3M1A1600C11 (1600mhz 11-11-11-30) DDR3,some of them are ver5.21 some 5.29.

 

i have 2 questions:

 

1. will i have any compatibility/performance loss if i mix them in one pc ?

2.are the mem chip the same for those 2 versions ?

 

thanks

The 5.xx indicates they are Hynix chips on those, now to the next part of this.

 

1) Quite possibly, the one thing you can try if you do use them is to keep them in similar channels so 5.21 in A and the 5.29 in the B channels. But as for issues, maybe. And generally not recommended.

 

2) As for the chips being the same in the two, depends what your definition of the same is. Manufacture, yes. Beyond that, likely not.

 

Just be aware that you should expect to see issues so you aren't surprised if they creep up.
