Different sticks of RAM can NOT run at different speeds in the same system. The motherboard will make both RAM modules runs in the lower speed.

How do I know what RAM speed my motherboard supports?
Under the spd tab in cpu-z, you will find the specs, manufacturer, part number of what you have installed. If you can find and buy the exact same part number that is what you should do. If you can’t find the same part number, look for ram with the same specs. DDR3l first, then voltage, speed, then cas numbers.
Can you use faster RAM than your motherboard supports?
Your computer will work just fine if you install the faster RAM. It will simply run at the slower 1333Mhz speed. Your motherboard will recognize those faster RAM sticks as being compatible (because they are) and allow the system to boot up and operate normally after you install them.
Can any RAM work with any motherboard?
No Mix and Match. Because of their different pin configurations, RAM chips are not a mix and match type of thing. If your motherboard is designed for DDR3 RAM, that’s the only type that will fit in the memory slots. Motherboard memory slots are integrated into the board itself and cannot be swapped out.
What type of RAM does my motherboard support?
Locate the RAM socket on the motherboard and find the voltage that is printed on the RAM socket, and then look for how many notches the RAM Slot has and that will help you to determine which type of RAM that motherboard supports.
What happens if RAM is not compatible with motherboard?
Literally nothing. Incompatible or misconfigured ram will cause the computer to “lock up” with no warning. Because on consumer PCs there is no ECC for Ram modules it is imperative to try to use compatible memory according to the system or motherboard manufacturer.
Can I put 3200MHz ram in 2400mhz motherboard?
Yes, as long as the motherboard is DDR4 compatible. This means that the sticks are 288 DIMMs and the motherboard supports that. While the label on the RAM kit may say “3200mhz,” that is simply the speed it can run at when overclocked with XMP.
Can I use 2400mhz ram in 2133mhz motherboard?
Betreff: Can I use 2400mhz ram with 2133mhz (on board soldered) ddr4 ram. Yes, you can. When the BIOS detects that the RAM is too fast for the memory controller or faster than the rest of the system memory, the fastest RAM will be clocked down to the speed of the lowest RAM.
Can I use 1600mHz ram in 1333mHz motherboard?
The compatibility of the ram depends more on your motherboard than your cpu. If your motherboard supports the 1600mHz, then it is likely that the g3258 will also. However, the cpu spec sheet says that it only supports up to 1333mHz, so if you use 1600mHz sticks it may downclock them to 1333mHz.
What happens if RAM fails?
It also has the highest failure rate among all other computer components. If your RAM is not working properly, then apps won’t run smoothly on your computer. Your operating system will work very slowly. Also, your web browser will become slower.
Can you put RAM in any slot?
A common misconception about RAM is that you can put any RAM into any slot. You can do that, but it won’t work, or it will work ineffectively. If you have four RAM slots, always buy matched pairs of RAM (two sticks from the same company, same speed, and same capacity) for the best results.
Can I add 8GB RAM to 4GB laptop?
If you want to add more RAM than that, say, by adding an 8GB module to your 4GB module, it’ll work but the performance of a portion of the 8GB module will be lower. In the end that extra RAM probably won’t be enough to matter (which you can read more about below.)
Is DDR4 better than DDR3?
Double data rate fourth generation (DDR4) is a memory standard designed as a better, faster, more reliable replacement for DDR3.
How do I know if my motherboard supports DDR4 RAM?
When you computer boots up and it’s either on a colorful manufacturer splash screen or a black POST screen it should show the Mother Board model number. If the splash screen comes up you should be able to hit Esc and see the memory count which should say DDR3 or DDR4 next to it.
