I currently am running Asrock B450 Pro 4 and Ryzen 5 1600 @ 4.1ghrtz with 2 sticks of Crucial Balistix Sport 2666mghrtz Ram in duel chanel mode ocupying Ram slot a2 and b2 will it stay duel channel if i add 2 more 8gig sticks to the open slots or recognize it?
The Ram is all identical Crusial Balistix Sport 2666mghrtz 2x8gig = 16gigs @2933 now is Pretty Fast i am just curious if it would be Faster with 4sticks and occupy all Slots if it would hurt or help! Always Testing configurations i know Ram timings and have made intel ram work on my AMD rigs Easily have been tuning Bios for 27 years! i Like testing boundaries https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wTs63b
No speed increase, and still dual channel. Only increased capacity.
It is NOT identical. Ram is only guaranteed to work as sold.
You can buy sticks that look alike(same brand, rated speed, timings), but that does not guarantee they'll work together - but I will say that has the highest compatibility when it comes to mixing kits.
Should you still decide to mix anyway, do run tests to confirm stability.
