This is a question for the computer people who I know frequent the forum.
I recently got a new computer. It had 8gb of ram. I wanted to go to 16gb. I went to Best Buy and they ordered the 8gb for me. When it came I installed with no problems. It shows up and is working fine. Then I went into Wise Care and this is what I found:
Both are DDR4 but the one that came with the computer has a speed of 2666 MHZ and the one I added has a speed of 2400 MHZ. I googled it and what I found is that the computer will actually go with the lower speed while in use and there shouldn't be a problem. As I say everything is working fine as far as I can tell. Is there any long term problems that might come up by using the 2 different speeds of ram?
I'm really not that savvy when it comes to computer hardware. This computer is much better than the old one I was using. Any feedback on this is appreciated.
