In this case your equation is true since the F3-12800CL9S-2GBXL is a single 2GB module and two of them make up product F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL BUT the F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL is a matched kit meaning it is guaranteed to play well with one another whereas the individual modules may cop attitudes towards each other...

SOLVED : The equation is not true :bounce: 


Dear Customer,


In reply to both of your emails, the dual module memory kit does not
automatically equal two single module memory kits. The dual module memory
kit has been tested for compatibility between the modules, but the single
module memory kits have not been tested for compatibility. If you use two
single memory module kits in a single system, you might encounter
incompatibility issues.

Regarding F3-10666CL9S-4GBXL, it is compatible with your motherboard on its
own. If you need 8GB, please purchase a dual module memory kit to avoid any
incompatibility problems.

Feel free to contact us again if you have any further questions. Thank you.

Best Regards

Actually I stand by what I wrote as the validity of the equation - same as what they say since the F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL is a kit of two modules - and should be purchased as a kit. The eMail you quote there is a different single 4GB module (F3-10666CL9S-4GBXL), not at all a valid comparison.
I would hope two 1600MHz modules wouldn't be the same as a single 1333MHz module anyway.

Ahh, I see...

I did say "in this case" because the F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL kit is composed of two F3-12800CL9S-2GBXL's - that is not always the case in ram numbers and kits - just so happens to be true here
