Hi bananaslik. I doubt that mixing memory speeds is the cause of the failure of one of your sticks. The computer usually just runs both sticks at the speed of the slower one. Mixing different makes and speeds has often been said to cause instability, so it's best to use one brand and stick to one speed.
