Can I have three 8 GB HyperX DDR4 2133 MHZ RAM along with one 16 GB ADATA 2400 MHZ RAM in my memory slots

Hi,

I have an ASUS PRIME PLUS AM4 Motherboard with four DIMM memory slots. I have a Ryzen 1600 processor along with three 8 GB HyperX DDR4 2133 MHZ RAM.

Can I have the three 8 GB HyperX DDR4 2133 MHZ RAM along with addition of one 16 GB ADATA 2400 MHZ RAM in my memory slots.

Will the different memory size and frequencies auto sync or will there be any issues?

Please respond to this question as soon as possible.

Thanks for your support.

Warm Regards,
Sriram. K

Yes, this motherboard is smart enough to handle all the different modules. There's no NEED (though in a perfect world, you'd want to) to have all slots populated with the same series.

There will be issues.  That's my thought from my previous experiences.

Even if your system accept that RAM and System boot properly you will experience BSOD whenever Windows use that Module to run some programs which need large amount of RAM to run.

Hi, in their website, HyberX mentions that their memory supports auto overclocking.

I have three HyperX 8 GB DDR4 2133 MHZ RAMs.

If I buy and install a 2400 MHZ 16 GB RAM, will the three  HyperX 8 GB 2133 MHZ RAM auto overclock to sync with the 16 GB DDR4 RAM that I intend to buy.

Please respond to this question asap.

Thanks for your support.

No, if memory can be overclocked, it's already stated clearly, like ex. HyperX DDR4 3000MHz (OC).
If it's stated that the memory is HyperX DDR4-2133, it's "NORMAL" memory. Do NOT  OVERCLOCK, THE MEMORY WILL FAIL!

I'm agree with above.  and Why are you putting your computer at risk with different RAM size and specs ?  just buy another 8 GB RAM with same specs and brand of your other modules.

MAYBE.

Look at the motherboard manual/motherboard manufacturer's web site.  If you want ASSURANCES it will work without issue, you must use what they declare is supported.

That said, the TYPE of RAM USUALLY works fine together - meaning different speeds USUALLY auto-adjust to the speed of the slowest module.  In my experience, 95% of the time (approximately) you won't have issues.  Occasionally it may seem to work but the computer could crash once in a while.  In rarer instances, the computer might not boot.  Anyone telling you it WILL work is basing that on their own experience and just hasn't seen a problem yet in my opinion.  Anyone telling you it will PROBABLY not work is likewise and probably didn't take many chances to see what would happen - again, in my opinion.

It should under-clock the slower memory to make sure they all work at their rated speeds. As Lee says that's not guaranteed but you can often downclock the CPU memory access times in BIOS then add the extra memory. More RAM=faster even if clocked down for most multithreaded apps but may be worse for shoot-em-up games.

Hi, thanks for all your responses. RAM with same frequencies is ideal as per the expert's suggestions.
