RAM Upgrade

Hmm, yeah ram prices are still bad even for DDR3. In theory you should not mix and match but unless you are doing heavy memory work then you should be fine.

 

You can buy a random 8GB stick as long it's 1600mhz DDR3 and it will 99.9% be seen as 16GB in total.

 

 

 

Hope this helps! xD

Hello, I have 8GB of crucial ram and I'd like to upgrade it to 16, but there's the problem, the ram i own is no longer available on the market and i can't find it anywhere used, there are few exceptions but they are way too expensive, they are priced almost twice as much than originally or unavailable in my country, can I just get the same specs one from different brand or will there occur a error and it won't go well together? Here's the ram i own: CT102464BA160B , that's DDR3 one stick 8GB of crucial ram 1600MHz CL11 with 8 modules on the side.

Shouldn't be a problem as far as I know. :/ Of course I can't promise all will work fine, BUT IT SHOULD (and most likely will)...

 

RAM is very touchy sometimes, I once told it to F off and it gave me a BSOD. -_-
