CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 with my Asus M4A77TD Pro

Gentlemen,

 

I have an ASUS M4A77TD-PRO motherboard,

http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A77TD_PRO/#specifications

 

I intend to buy and add to it:

XMS3 — 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit (CMX8GX3M2A1333C9)

http://www.corsair.com/cmx8gx3m2a1333c9.html

But this product is not specifically listed as being compatible with my motherboard by ASUS, or by Corsair.

 

Furthermore;

 

My current RAM is 4gb in total, comprising of two 2gb micron modules: I have deliberately chosen corsair ram as similar to this as possible, and I will be attempting to run this ram alongside the new one, just to see if it works out, if not i will use the corsair ram exclusively.

 

I am running windows 7 home premium 64bit, and I have a AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU

 

 

I have closely examined the specifications of my motherboard,and the new RAM, and i have read the Memory Upgrade Resource Guide; personally I see no reason why it would not work.

 

I am completely new to all of this, however, so before I buy I was hoping that one of the RAM connoisseurs here would be able to give some constructive criticism, and point out any issues i have missed. :confused:

 

Thank you for your time.

Is there any harm in trying mixing RAM though?

 

Am I likely to experience any issues that cant be solved by simply taking out one set of the mixed cards?

 

Is there any risk of permanent physical damage?

 

I have skimmed over these forms and those who have had problems have only been performance based (RAM running at a lower speed etc)

 

please elaborate on why exactly its bad to mix ram.

You are welcome to try it but keep in mind it may not work and there may not be a lot we can do to solve it. I would strongly suggest getting the set that you want and NOT mix sets.
