Can I use two 4GB RAM sticks and two 8GB sticks at the same time?

I am looking to upgrade my ram a bit and have the money to upgrade it with 16 gigs but not enough to replace the two 4's. Will this work as long as they are the same Voltage, Cas Latency, MHz and same model/brand?

If you want 16gb then all you need is 2 more 4gb sticks.

To answer your question though, yes. I have 12gb (2x4 and 2x2).

The only thing to make sure is that your mobo will support 8gb sticks.

Thanks, I guess I am looking to make 24gb of ram then, I have an Asus Maximus VI Formula board which I am pretty sure will support the 8gb sitcks.

The 2x8GB is a good idea as there's no guarantee that all the sticks will play together, get the 16GB stable then try adding the old sticks, if you have any problems give me a shout
