Kingston RAM compatibility

hello wanna ask u guys about my RAM..

I already have Kingston HyperX TC DDR3 1600 MHZ (KHX12800D3LLK3/6GX)..

and i want to add 6GB more RAM.. since there's no more KHX128000D3LLK3/6GX model selling at my place..so i want to buy this model :

1) Kingston HyperX 6GB DDR3 1600MHZ KHX1600C9D3K3

or

2) Kingston HyperX 6GB DDR3 1600MHZ KHX1600C9D3T1K3

and my question is it compatible with the one i already have??

or is it, i must get the same model of 1600 MHZ RAM to make it compatible??

  1. Best answer
    1- Why do u need 12GB?
    2- Both are compatible but is better the 1st one. Keep in mind that ur current RAM has different CL to the new one (CL8 against CL9) so all the RAM will run at 1600 CL9.
    3- Here is the same RAM that u already have. See here

    1) Gaming, graphic designing etc.
    2) Is it a problem if both ram run at 1600 CL9? or any disadvantages?
    3) Yup, thats the one i used.. goin to buy one of the 2 mention above.. both are compatible with the one i already have right?

    So it's not going to be a problem right? Both are confirm compatible right??

    Just want to confirm before buying it..
  3. 1- Like I say up, 12GB are overkill even with 8GB u can use many adobe applications at the same time.
    2- Not really, just change the CL and the RAM is a little more slow but u won't see any difference.
    3- Yeah, both are compatible with ur current RAM so it's not a problem.
