I am looking to upgrade a Desktop currently with 2 sticks of 2GB RAM, by adding a couple of sticks of 1GB RAM. I am unsure what I need to look at to check their compatibility. Both sets of memory run on DDR3, the current 2GB sticks are CH9, while the two I want to add will be CL7. Will these two different types be compatible?
Is there something else I should be looking at to see if the RAM is compatible? Would I be OK to just put both types in the PC and see if at accepts the new RAM or am at risk of damaging something?
Thanks for your help
Current set-up: 2*2GB running at 1600
change to: 2*2GB running at 1600 + 2*1GB running at 1066
