Question I swapped in a 2x8 1600mhz to my 2x8 1333mhz somehow it got much slower?

May 15, 2023
Hey guys so i swapped out my other faulty ram 2x8gb 1866 fury (when i manually input it on bios it just crash even on 1600mhz only works on 1333)
to a spare 2x8gb 1600mhz ram EXRAM and i tried testing games on it and yep it became much slower i ran user benchmarks.
for the 1600mhz EXRAM
i didn't change anything in the bios i just plug and play the EXRAM
it runs on 1600mhz why did i suddenly get a much lower fps on games?

1333mhz ram result KINGSTON FURY
1600mhz ram result: EXRAM Brand

or that exram brand ram just sucks?
both runs on 1.5V do i need to enable something in the BIOS?


EXRam aren't exactly a good brand. You might also want to keep in mind that ram IC's are binned according to their performance ceilings, meaning that higher frequency rams will be binned better than bottom of the barrel rams running at say, DDR3-1333MHz.
