Need to upgrade ram but can't find same brand ram. What to do? HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
I want to upgrade my single channel ram setup to dual-channel from ram capacity from 8GB to 16GB but I am unable to find the same brand ram in the market. They're showing out of stock since this Covid-19 affected us.

Currently, I am using this ram in my PC (Corsair vengeance DDR3 8GB x 1) -

Motherboard - Asus z97a -

My question - Should I mix the ram brands? If yes then please help me choosing one

I live in India and corsair is partnered with e-commerce like Amazon, Flipkart, Walmart etc and their online portals shows out of stock.
