    Hey peeps!

    I just bought another 8gb stick of ram to go with my other 8gb. Whats installed in there right now is the Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200mhz 8gb. The one i purchased is Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400mhz 8gb. My motherboard being a MSI Z170a sli pl. Will The 2400 mhz stick work with the 3200mhz? If so how would i go about installing it? Do i dual link it, or single? Go into bios set timings with the 3200mhz?voltage?
    Or will putting in the Stick automatically adjust the to what it needs to be?

    It should work but both sticks will run at the lower speed of 2400MHz.

    Are you in Poland ? (Looking online for your motherboard found only Polish websites).

    Just realised I searched for 'MSI Z170a sli pl' and the browser though the pl meant Poland. ;)
