RAM

Hi, I have two sticks of 16GB 2400MHz Corsair Vengence ddr4 and I was wondering if I can put two 4GB 2400MHz Corsair Vengence ddr4.

 

Thanks!

If you are asking if you can add two more sticks of ddr4 ram to your current 2x8gb set up, the answer is yes

It will likely work but if you're running dual channel you will probably lose it, which you might not necessarily even notice. Just make sure the system is off and unplugged when you install the extra RAM into the correct slots.

Why would you need 40gb of RAM tho

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

I have four dims so two will be occupied by the two 16gb sticks and the other two by two 4 GB sticks

Yes that is correct. Doesn't change anything on what I said though. There is no issues there. It will likely work because they seem to be the same sticks of ram (sometimes mixing RAM sticks will not always work).

Chrome can use up 16GB of RAM pretty easily, trust me. A game running in the background, Discord, Chrome, and a file server all on one PC at once will require lots of RAM.

Thank you! I plan to overclock the ram to hell so and water blocks on them but the symmetry was annoying me

Everyone always says that but I've never had an issue. QfyE6vR.jpg

All those tabs open. All those youtube tabs have videos playing at the same time. Discord is open an active, spotify streaming, 2 GPUs folding at max power, steam open. Im using ~7GB of RAM. You can clearly see the big spike in usage, but its still just using 7GB.

Not to disappoint but just a fair warning, you'll probably spend a fortune for very little gain. It will look amazing though.

That's pretty surprising, I use 8GB of RAM with just a few Chrome tabs and hit 16GB pretty early.

And just to add for evidence this has been the same across maybe 3-4 systems I've built, some DDR3, some DDR4. Only system I ever had issues with was a machine with Windows Vista (ew I know) and 6GB DDR2.
