  1. Hi Guys,

    Currently running win 7 64 with 2*2gb geil gx24gb8500c5udc and have no probs what so ever, but I'd like to upgrade to 8gb as don't want to end up in dead end with lack of it in year or so.
    There is no same ram left in my city, I can't order it online and I read somewhere that mixing different manufacturers isn't great idea.

    My question is, if I buy ram with same speed 1066, same latency timings 5-5-5-15, and voltage 2.2v, 1066 @ 2.2v, but from different manufacturer (transcend, corsair, kingston, ocz), would I have problems running it (all 8gb) at 1066?
    Mainboard is biostar ta790gb 128, phenom2 940 @ 3.6.

    Any help would be most welcome!

    Thanks in advance!

    smiki :)
