Anxious about RAM Compatibility
Dec 8, 2013, 4:14 AM
So I'm looking to get a second kit of RAM to go along with 8GB already installed.
The problem is, the first pair of sticks were Kingston HyperX RED Limited Edition, 1600MHz DDR3 - am I out of luck, or is there a way to get a pair that will be compatible with these?
Does it matter as long as you have the same speed (1600), if I were to, say, get HyperX Black?

You have to look the timing also, the red version has 9-9-9-27 like blue version
But remember some CPU's doesnt support well quad channel RAMs is better to have 2x8GB not 4x4GB.
What CPU do u have ?
