Question Cm3x2g1600c9d6 & tr3x6g1600c8d

I have a rig built by cyberpowerpc with the CM3X2G1600C9D6 modules (3x for a total of 6gb) and am thinking of adding this holiday season another six.

Obviously since the original modules are OEM I can't just pick it up from the egg - is matching that with the TR3X6G1600C8D a good idea? In other words, if I go into BIOS Setup and select XMP, will angels sing, or all hell break loose?

I do not have, and do not plan to, overclock anytime soon. Maybe one day when the computer is near retirement and I have time to pull my hair I might give it a shot.

Thanks for the help.

Below is a quote from Yellowbeard/Corsair:


We cannot guarantee that the 2 kits will work together and it is not a recommended configuration. It may work, it may not. The ONLY way to know is for you to install them together and test them together. "

PLEASE READ THE MEMORY UPGRADE GUIDE at the link below. It WILL answer many questions.

PC Overclocking is like the lottery:

There are many possible combinations but only a few that produce winning results. Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to overclocking. If you are able to tune your hardware to run beyond it's specified performance, then you got something for free.

Don't expect this to always happen.
