I have a DX79SR mobo that currently has 4 sticks of 4GB DDR3-1600 installed. I want to upgrade to at least 32GB, but want advice as to the best approach.
Can I mix 4 and 8 GB sticks?
If I get faster memory will the system use the higher speed or will it be limited to the current speed?
The documentation I have isn't at all clear about combining different sizes / speeds and what will work.
Thank you for the link, but it really doesn't answer my questions - I had found it earlier and it doesn't indicate if I can combine different size / speed sticks or not, and what results I can expect if I do... I know the board has 4 channels with two sockets per channel. I assume that I need to have matching sticks in each channel, but can I do something like fast 8GB sticks in channels 1 & 2 and 4GB sticks in channels 3 & 4?
