    You can get 1600MHz but if you use it combined with your current 1333MHz they will all run at 1333MHz.

    Legend! I dont mind buying 2 new sticks

    After reading the manual from my motherboard it says..

    'Memory = Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Technology
    2 x DDR3 DIMM slots
    Supports DDR33 1333/1066 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
    Max. Capacity of system memory: 16GB'

    So if i'm right... ' http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(...-9-9-9-24-150v ' should be fine?[COLOR="red"]

    Edit: i asked my step bro and he said summin along the lines of 'it looks like they won't work in parallel''....??
    What he is talking about is Dual Channel. In order to run in DC, both memory modules have to be able to run at the same speed with the same timings. That can be tricky when you have 2 different modules, which is why MB manufacturers usually tell you to run identical ram in all of the memory slots.



    Here is the same ram from Overclockers. Looks to be a bit cheaper:

    Yeah thanks.... got those exact ones!

    So i successfully installed my new 8gb 1333mhz RAM. This is what speccy is saying its like now....

    Memory slots
    Total memory slots 2
    Used memory slots 2
    Free memory slots 0
    Memory
    Type DDR3
    Size 8192 MBytes
    Channels # Dual
    DRAM Frequency 665.9 MHz
    CAS# Latency (CL) 9 clocks
    RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCD) 9 clocks
    RAS# Precharge (tRP) 9 clocks
    Cycle Time (tRAS) 24 clocks
    Command Rate (CR)

    Is this all correct? 665.9mhz? or is that multiplied by 2?

    Yes it looks correct. DDR = Double Data Rate it is always reported at half the speed.
    Intel i5-3570K @ 4.7GHz | MSI Z77 Mpower | Noctua NH-D14 | Corsair Vengeance LP White 1.35V 8GB 1600MHz
    Gigabyte GTX 670 OC Windforce 3X @ 1372/7604MHz | Corsair Force GT 120GB | Silverstone Fortress FT02 | Corsair VX450

    Thanks man!

    Crucial has a memory scanner tool on their site. And you can buy the RAM directly from them at along the same cost as newegg. They have a compatibility guarantee. My motherboard was dated so I had to flash it so it would accept the 8 gigs (would only post with 4 gigs) but you shouldn't have that problem.

    You did good on the purchase, the XMS3 sticks are very well rounded ram at reasonable prices. I've got an 8gb kit in my server and I've never had an issue.

    @OP Try this set.. It's only 40 pond -> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(...9-9-24-xmp-15v

    And is 267MHz faster so.
    Sort've. The motherboard decides if it supports overclocked ram. The IMC decides what is overclocked. Anything higher than 1333mhz on Sandy Bridge processors is considered overclocked. Ivy bridge supports 1600mhz default, anything over is considered an overclock.
