gigabyte mobo and corsair ram voltage question

Recommended Posts

i have this motherboard.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...

which supports 4x240pin memory at 1.8V

 

i just recieved this memory

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...

which is 1.9V

 

my other memory is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231098

which is 1.8-2.0V

 

will this work fine if i install the corsair memory? or will i have problems with voltage because my mobo supports 1.8V memory. or will the bios automatically set the voltage/latency. i just want to make sure this works, i got it in a nice combo deal from newegg so i couldnt pass it up. thanks for the help

sorry the links didnt work. anyway, my gigabyte motherboard has 4 ram slots, two of them are red, and two are yellow. i believe they can be mixed as long as the ram in the red slots are the same, and the ram in the yellow slots are the same. at least thats how i thought it worked. anyway, here are the links again.

 

this is my mobo (says it supports 1.8V)

this is the ram i currently have in the yellow slots. (1.8V-2.0V)

I am pretty sure you cannot mix two different brands of RAM. Even though they are in corresponding slots to each other, they still have to work together. If all the RAM was one brand they would need to be all the same part. It is almost impossible to get the same part while dealing with two different brands.
