Can I use the same DDR4 single stick rams and clock them at their maximum advertised speed??

The reason why I am asking this question is because buying separate 8gb sticks is cheaper here as of the moment.

 

I'm planning on getting 2 of these and putting them on a build and the I plan to overclock then ram to 2666mhz.

So it would be 1x8gb + 1x8gb instead of 2x8gb paired kits.

most of the time this works without issues at all

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Oh, so you have tried it a lot of times and it worked?

Did that with my Crucial 3466MHz CL16 kit,

For some reason Amazon sold a kit of 2x 8GB for double the price of buying the exact same modules separately.

How was the overclocking?

Just use XMP,should have no problem with that as long as both modules are the same.

I don't tend to run ram above its rated speed in my personal rigs I just buy fast ram and enable XMP cause I'm lazy, but once you get into overclocking it's the same story as if you bought them together. It's just more voltage for more performance and such.

OP means two of the same dimms from two kits instead of a kit of two. Basically packaged with different serial numbers.

Most of the time it will work fine. If you buy the kit you have the guarantee that it will work fine. That means if it don't work fine you can RMA and maybe they wont let you if they aren't kits and don't work together. However it should work and probably will work fine but as I said there is no guarantee that it will.
