Question about RAM compatibility and performance...

Recommended Posts

Ok.

 

I have a Corsair Twin XMS 2048-3500LL kit, which I am in love with.

But I am not going to buy a system for awhile; probably 2010!

"if" I can stop myself from going crazy when DDR3 and PCIe 2.0 pops

up with AM3 :P

 

The Corsair 3500LL works great. Only beef is, it's at DDR433 (217~218) :P

 

Anyways, I am thinking of getting another 2GB kit to future proof

my computer for Vista, DX10 gaming and apps that I may utilize till 2010.

 

I couldn't find 3500ll anywhere, so contacted Corsair about it...

They're discontinued... :sad:

 

Anyways, I was thinking of getting the next best thing, which is

the Mushkin RedlineXP DDR500 2GB kit.

Specs on the Redline XP is here.

 

I was just wondering if these are compatible and good performers if

I match them up with the existing 3500LLs and the CFX3200 I have.

 

 

Prethanks for the comments and your time :D

Happy Holidays! Happy Soon to be New Year! :D

While not impossible the odds of that configuration working is very slim. You should never attempt to mix two different types of ram.

I asked on the mushkin support forums

and they said that their

 

Redlines with CE-5 ICs

and

Corsair XMS with BE-5 ICs

 

would most likely be compatible...

 

The "most likely" part is bugging me...

 

Don't wanna spend over $300 just to

find out I can't use it :rolleyes:

You might write OCZ Tony who worked with quite a bit with this motherboard. Even though the memory you have in question is not a product that he represents, Tony did extensive testing with this motherboard and as you know is a skilled bios modder. I think OCZ Tony, Rgone, and I think EVA2000, all seem to have a pretty good handle on this motherboard and the memory that works best with it.
