Can these two ram packages make 8g?

If I buy two of these ram packages, can I get 8g of ram on my mobo?

I just noticed doing it this way is like 20$ cheaper than buying the actual newegg 4x2g deal.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

  1. Yes you can, as long as your Motherboard has 4 DIMM slots, and supports 8GB of memory.
  2. hi mate

    i think you might take risk if you do that.
    you will lose the warranty.
    that's why G.Skill released 8gb product,isn't it.
    they always say about the compatibility.

    Some motherboards are very sensitive to mismatched ram. It is possible that different batches of ram with the same part number can have a different manufacturing makeup. To be certain that this does not happen, ram is sold in kits.

    That said, the possibility of a problem is not significant, particularly since you are ordering from the same place at the same time.

    If price is not terribly important, you might look at a 8gb kit in a 2 x 4gb configuration.

    4gb stick prices have come down, and are about a 10% premium.
    Such a kit will fill only two slots leaving room for expansion. Also, I have found it easier to overclock using two sticks vs, 4.
