I just ordered parts for a computer and for the build I got 8gb of G.Skill Sniper ram, but my motherboard also came with 8gb of Patriot gamer ram. Both rams have the same capacity, speed, timings, voltage, etc. I just want to know if i could pair these two together for 16gbs.

You can, but it may lead to problems.

So try it, if it works, perfect.
If it doesn't, you have 8GB of RAM to sell off or put in a future rig.

Technically they should be compatible. But these seldom work . Personally i always would avoid mixing different brands and same is my advice.
