Hello!

I have a hard time with my old computer...

My MB is a MSI B85 G43
i have 2x2GB DDR3 (1600)

and i want to add 2x2GB (1333)

But every time i add the 2 ram sticks, my computer goes in infinite reboot. It works fine w/o them btw...

Isn't it possible to add different frequencies ? Even when I switch to 1333 mHz manually, he doesnt like it...

Mixing memory might and might not work. You could try manually lowering the 1600 memory to 1333 then see if it works.
