Hey friends.

I purchased long time ago 2 sticks of Vengeance Pro RGB at 3200MHz CL16

Can I pair them with 2 sticks at 3600MHz without any issues so in total of 32 GB of RAM.

This RAM is currently hard to find so I can only find 3600MHz modules CL18.

I know it will work at 3200 but I don't care,I just need to know if there will be some issues,like BSOD,can not boot etc...

Board is Crosshair VIII Hero.

Mix and match RAM is a gamble. I would recommend running memtest86 for 6 or 8 hours BEFORE you try to boot windows. That way there is no possibility of data corruption in your Windows instance.

Better not mix ram. If it boots, installs, and etc., it can cause a lot of issues like crashes, freezes, instability problems and etc. Better sell your old ram and buy new kit what you want, and what manufacturer recommends...
