Hey! I have a quick and easy question here that I pretty much know the answer too, I just want to double check!
I plan on buying more ram for my home built PC and I currently have 4GB of this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

BUT I was wondering if I got this one that there's a difference between the two besides color? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... all the specs are the same so they are basically the same stick and will work together, just different colors right?

Thanks!

To be precise, the model numbers are exactly the same except the blue version has an extra "B" at the end (presumably for "blue")

If you happen to look at the low profile version of those sticks, the White ones operate on a lower voltage(1.35).

Just a heads up for the future.

In the future try to order sticks in sets of as many as you need just in case they switch the chips over time.

I have about a 99% success rate with mixed memory(and have a feeling you will be just fine). Its just that one time you know...
