ram mixing is either a hit or mix, in any case they both would run at the lower frequency and the highest CL (not your case here since theyre identical) but the timings might be an issue and could prevent a boot. Don't think theres a way to tell for sure.

Are you trying to use 2 different types of ram with each other?

Can't garuantee it, but you could and there might be some unstability were you have to reduce or adjust their timings?

or it will work just fine or no boot like suggested above.

What do you mean by timings? Also I meant to type 2400MHz on both

Well they are timings, to put it in simple terms its presented in a number (such as 16) and a command (sucb tRP) and the number represents the wait time between commands/clock cycle. Either way there's no real reason to tell, why are you buying two different 16GB kits by the way?

The 16GB samsung one is in my PC already and I need another 16GB one and Estonia doesn't have the same kind of ram.

there is more to it than just the "speed".

So when these timings aren't similar or speed, it can cause a traffic jam when a part wants everything in the correct order.
