Q: RAM speed and usage on a PowerMac
I have noticed that my machine recognizes the two different RAM speed currently installed on the computer. The RAM that came with it is 30330 and the OC2 RAM I got, a faster 25330.
The question is, would the machine use the slowest (or a default) RAM latency based on what's on its bank or would it use the speed based on each memoy stick?
The question is to understand - is it worth it getting faster RAM for the machine (and maybe eliminating the two sticks that came with it) or is it just a confort level (getting better, faster RAM) and 30330 is just fine?
Also, is it ok to mix and match RAM brands? 2xSamsumg, 2xOC2, 2xKinston (paired) for example?
