  1. If you are going to use it in dual channel mode, you are best off matching the old stick for voltage, timings, brand, and speed. Dual channel gets very fussy if the two sticks in opposite channels are not exactly the same. That's why dual channel memory is sold in MATCHED pairs.

    Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. The HyperX Blu 4GB 1600MHz memory will most likely run at 1333MHz standard by default and may work in the motherboard. Since the H61MXE memory slots are set up as Dual Channel it would be better to get a matched pair of memory to avoid any further issues. The recommended part number for a matched pair of 4GB modules for a total of 8GB is KVR13N9S8K2/8. I also recommend updating the BIOS to the latest version prior to upgrading your memory as BIOS updates tend to add compatibility for memory. For any further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

    Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.
