Mixing RAM with different frequencies?

What happens when you mix RAM sticks of a different frequency, does the BIOS just set the it to the lower clock?

manually set the frequencies to see if the others will overclock.

TBH I don't think I would waste the money trying it, I have 8GB running at 1600MHz which is happy enough for the time being.

as long as you don't mess with voltage, you have nothing to worry about.

give it a shot.

As long as you don't go over 1.975v, your memory will not be damaged. That's part of Jedec standard.
