It's generally not a good idea to mix RAM types. If your other stick is a from a different brand, it probably won't work with a Ripjaws stick. What are the models of the two sticks?

Do NOT put your email here. You can take it down by editing yourself with either of the first two buttons of the three in the bottom right of the original post.
EDIT: Thanks, nikorr.

Not true. Mixing RAM brands and types usually works fine. Timings and speed will just default to the slower sticks specs. It won't be the best performance wise but compatability problems are pretty rare.

It won't hurt to try the sticks together, but if the OP only has one and is looking to buy another (not sure which is going on here), then they should get a second set that matches the first.

I have mixed and matched memory for years and have been very lucky for it to always work. However, there is not always a guarantee.

I have come across 2 times when memory not on the motherboard makers QVL have cased a problem(not a mix and match issue, but some boards/chipsets are just picky). So you have about a 80%+ chance it will work fine and just default to the speed of the slower stick(sometimes slower sticks can be made to go faster with a bit more voltage and manual settings :)  ).
