Asus p6x58d-e, mixing CMX8GX3M2A 1333 and 1600


Recommended Posts

Hey all


Built my PC just on 10 years back with an Asus p6x58d-e and 8gb ram, and it's been going strong, but the 8gb ram I put in back then just doesn't cut it anymore. I have recently acquired the following from ebay in seperate sales:

4x 4gb XMS3 CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 1.5v

2x 4gb XMS3 CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 1.65v


I didn't think much of the differences at the time, but just want to check before I chuck it in. I know you shouldn't mix speeds/models/voltages, but in this case when it's all so close, is it safe to do so or still not a good idea? Can/Should I underclock the 1600 or overclock the 1333? Or will it just all automatically match the 1333 and be fine?
