Can I mix PC3-10600 with PC3-10700 RAM? And, if so, what are the side effects of mixing these types?

It is the same - 1333MHz - DDR double data rate at 666.5
Fractional frequencies are normally rounded down, but rounding up to 667 is common because of the exact number being 666⅔ and rounding to the nearest whole number. Some manufacturers also round to a certain precision or round up instead. For example, PC3-10666 memory could be listed as PC3-10600 or PC3-10700

however if you plan to increase the ram always use matched pairs and check the motherboard for max ram. ,I cannot find it but you can use the crucial memory scanner, on the link above


the CPU is OK it can handle 16GB

Thanks so much!


If I do mix RAM brands but stay within the specs of the existing RAM with the new RAM, how will that effect the performance of the system?
