    Default EX58-UD3R SLI REV 1.0 Ram questions

    This X58 board only comes with 4 ram slots. I currently have the three white ram slots filled with 3x1GB 1333 OCZ PC3-10666 ram running at 1224 8-8-8-19 with 1.54 voltage. Link to the ram: OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 Platinum Low-Voltage Triple Channel - OCZ

    1. The manual claims that using the 4th blue ram slot still allows the board to run in triple channel mode. Is this true? Will there be any performance loss or loss of the ability to overclock when using all four ram slots?

    2. Is it possible to mix and match different DDR3 of different capacity with my current ram without any problems as long as they are capable of running at the same speeds, timings and voltage? For an example If I bought this set : Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL8D-4GBHK and filled all four slots of my board with two of the new ram and two of the old ram for a grand total of 6GB (or two of the new and one of the old in case using the 4th blue slot causes a drop in performance for a total of 5GB)and set them to my current speed and timings would they play nice?

    Thanks in advance for your help, ram prices have dropped so much and I really need to upgrade from my 3GB.

    Why not just sell those and buy a cheap set of 6gb,3 2gb sticks?Or thought about 12gb? 3 4gb sticks? They would work in tri channel mode too

    Nobody wants 1GB sticks of DDR3, because of this it makes your suggestion of buying a 3x2GB kit of ram much more expensive than the $30 kit I linked above. Anyone else willing to answer my questions?

    To answer your question,no it shouldn't affect performance adding two sticks to the gskill kit,it would be best not to mix brands ect but I cantsee why they shouldn't work if they are the same spec,plenty cheap used ram on eBay too that's why I suggested a 6gb kit,plus 1600mhz might help your performance a little,but what your planning with 1333mhz should work fine
