please refer to noted comments below also Is it better to have a faster speed processor/CPU or memory/RAM clockspeeds? For instance, I have a HP Z2 G5 i7-10700 2.9ghz that runs at about 2904mhz (per sysinfo) and came with 1x16gb 3200 (Micron), but I have 2x16=32gb 2400 (Micron) that I tried and didn't seem to run any slower that I could notice. Or should I just spring for another 16gb 3200? Also I read that these units can run multiple speed RAM sticks, so in essence I could still use the 3200 with a 2400 or 2666 without issue. Also I wonder if it'll overheat the RAM sticks if they're slower than CPU. I also have several 2666 of varying makers, but I like to use same exact maker/specs with my RAM sticks. I'm running Windows 11 (rather 10 tho but that'll be phased out soon) Also, I'm not a gamer, but I likely will do light video editing like clipping and cropping few videos. System has Nvidia Quadro T1000 with 2gb RAM (maybe 4gb). *MIGHT try some online gaming like Battleship or something. Nothing graphics intensive.
** PLEASE NOTE ** ** I should point out this particular unit is designed to be dual channel capable for the 2 RAM slots per manufacturer manual. I'm just stuck in the past with some of my logic. System sku is included if anyone wants to look it up.
