Ram Upgrade doesn't need to be the same exact part right?

Upgrading my 6GB of DDR3 to 12GB.

I can't find the current part number I have installed of Corsair Dominator since I bought it like 2 years ago.

I'm assuming this newer part number will still work? Timings and voltage is the same, only difference is stock speed. But I have my stock speeds set manually anyways, I'm assuming this shouldn't be a problem with mixing the 2 part numbers of the same brand, series, timings, and voltage even if stock speeds are different?

Just wanted to double check, thanks.

  1. It's a little chancy that the stock speeds don't match, but since everything else does match, it's worth a try.
  2. oh didn't realize it was that chancy? Well I guess Amazon is good at giving returns if it doesn't work :x
