Question will dual channel work with Corsair Vengeance CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 and Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10?


Jun 11, 2015
hi, my cpu i5-4670k, gpu - zotac 1050ti mini, mobo- gigabyte z87x-ud3h, bios version F10b, psu corsair cs650m , ram 3x4gb @1600 mhz, windows10, cabinet cooler master haf 912, cpu cooler-Hyper 212X
now i have 3x 4gb Corsair Vengeance CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9. on my 4th slot i wanna use another ram. now currently in my country 8gb Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10 cheaper than 4gb Corsair Vengeance CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9. My mobo supports dual channel and 4gb Corsair Vengeance CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 was perfectly running in dual channel. I use my pc mainly for gaming. so i have few questions-

1) will dual channel mode work if i use that 8gb ram instead 4 gb?

2)if dual channel works with that 8gb ram on 4th slot will using C10 timing instead C9 gonna reduce performence or will that be unnoticable?

3) for running one slot at c10 will my other slots' c9 rams also gonna run at c10? will that make any noticable performance decrease?

please help me out, any input is welcome.
