Different brand RAM

  1. Hey guys,

    My question is probably dumb, but I've never really thought of it before and wanted some feedback before I buy.

    Basically, say I have brand A ram and want to add some more, but it's from brand B. That won't matter, will it (both being DDR 3, of course)?

    I don't see why different brands wouldn't play nice together, but I never say never >.>

    This depends on how you plan to use your computer. As a general rule with newer motherboards, you should at least use the same timings and type memory. Brand can be different, although I always use identical RAM in my builds

    Sounds good to me (and it's a gaming rig).

    I'll double check the timings before I purchase. Something I should have known, but slipped my mind.

    Thanks a lot!
