Would RAM DDR3 1600MHz 1.65v run on 1333MHz 1.5V slot ?

Hi, as the title says my motherboard is a bit old which is ASRock G41C-S and its maximum support of RAM front side bus is 1333MHz, so i'm running 4GB of ram with two different modules one is A-Data 2GB DDR3 1333MHz and another is Apacer 2GB DDR3 1333MHz and i've ran them together for a year without any issues at all but i found that my PC wasn't running at full speed compared to other PC's with the same specifications so i'm planning to buy Kingston HyperX Blu 1600MHz running at 1.65V and now i don't know if my mobo will accept this kind of memory to run it stable without any issues. So please give me an answer and thank you so much in advance

If it's 1333mhz, then that's as fast as it will run. 1600mhzetc will only run @ 1333mhz with your board.

Thank you for the fast replay but "1.65 voltage" will it make any difference or not ? because the new ram memory it has "1.65" instead of "1.5" ?

The Ram Spec Voltage needs to be 1.5 Volts.


If you can raise the motherboard Ram Voltage to 1.65 Volts in the Bios Settings, then you will be ok.

8GB 1600Mhz + 4GB 1333Mhz
Would this work? Just that I may sell my 4GB sticks and was wondering if having 2x 4GB sticks at 1600Mhz would work with 2x 2GB sticks at 1333Mhz. Would they just lower down to 1333Mhz?
