G skill Ram compatibility

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi In my PC i currently have 16GB (2x8) Gskill F4-32OOC16D-16GVVGB Memory DDR4 3200 and recently found this kit that was on offer https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B015FXXBW0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Would I have any problem using both kits together the only difference I could see was  the colour being different and could not any anything else that would cause a problem. 

 

When I contacted gskill they told me that they do not recommend mixing two kits together but I should try updating my bios and see if i still have bsod issues. Before I updated my bios I checked to make sure my memory is working correctly by doing a Windows memory Diagnostic which kept coming up with no issues, after that I used the System File Checker tool and had issues with that too and the same with a antivirus scan using bit defender.

 

Once I had done all those I checks and kept getting bsod errors, I decided to update my bios which went smoothly and bsod stopped happening so frequently but still get them sometimes and today i ended up getting a boot failure message and that is why I am here hoping some can help me.

I never mix ram kits even if they are the same model and speed and everything. To high of a chance for incompatibilities especially with DDR4 it's a lot more picky than DDR3 was. If you need a specific amount of ram buy a kit with that amount.


Main Desktop: CPU - I9-9900k @5ghz | Mobo - Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master | GPU - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC RAM - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200mhz | AIO - H100i Pro RGB | PSU - Evga 850 GQ | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 512GB / Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVME SSD / Samsung 860 Evo Pro 500GB / Seagate 2TB Firecuda Hybrid Drive |

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.
