Upgrading from 8gb ram > 16gb ram

 

Just to clarify, im currently using 2x4 gb in dual channel.

It would be all cool to just add another 2x4 kit? There wont be any interference between the two?

 

If you use the exact same kit, then it is safe :)

Hey guys, I just have a quick question,

I currently have 8gb of G.skill ram, and was looking to upgrade to 16gb.

Would it be better to just get a kit of 16gb, (re-use the 8gb in a different computer), or just get another 8gb of the same ram?

This is the ram I'm currently using:

Thanks in advance, I dont know alot about ram :)

Perfectly safe to use another stick of 8GB with the one you have now :)
