    Kingston ValueRAM 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KVR16N11/8

    Using two of these is not guaranteed to be compatible. You can see that they were manufactured at different times. They were never tested together by Kingston.

    I would recommend you use a matched pair, that is guaranteed to be compatible.

  3. It's not an issue of compatible RAM, if there were issues there you would not see 16 GB or RAM installed like you are or system won't boot.

    Run a RAM test with Prime95 and check things with Performance Monitor. If you are just looking at how RAM is being used with one program that will not tell you anything if there is an issue or not.
  4. You want your apps to use available RAM space? try open 150 youtube web pages on google chrome ( after you do this chrome://flags/#automatic-tab-discarding. )
