    Default Different memory sticks on Z170X Gaming 5?

    Hi,

    Nice to find this forum. Hopefully I will find a definitive answer to this question.

    I currently have 32gb (two 16 gb cards) in my Z170X-Gaming 5 motherboard.
    The current cards are: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200)

    Can I add an additional 32gb by installing two 16gb cards that are 3200 speed?
    Planning to buy: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600)

    This 3200 memory is currently significantly cheaper than the 2400.

    Can I safely install this or will it the different speeds/timing etc cause problems? I certainly do not want any additional problems in these trying times

    Thanks for advice!

    Hopefully someone can provide a definitive answer today :) The sale will end tomorrow.

    I've read conflicting things online about using pairs of memory sticks with different speeds.
    Some advice says its fine, other say it will result in conflicts.
    I'm sure that a Gigabyte rep or very experienced user can provide a precise answer.

    Thanks!
