RAM UPGRADING from 1x4gb stick to 2x4gb sticks
Dec 5, 2013, 7:10 PM
Hello, I was wondering if I got 4gb(1 stick) of RAM from a certain brand and now I feel the need to add more. I wanted to make sure they will dual channel and work together.
so if i already have 4gb now from a certain brand and upgrade and buy same ram later will it work dual channel.
so to wrap it up will having two seperate sticks of 4gb work instead of a kit of 8gb
