In the link you will see the performance between 1333 and 1600 is very similar. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/memory/2011/01/11/the-... cin19 a c 80 } Memory January 30, 2013 8:21:05 PM The 2nd one shows Technical Details 240PIN DDR3 1333 MHz Unbuffered DIMM 8GB (512Mx8/CL9) Limited Lifetime Warranty 100% Tested So I don't know which speed it is. Also the old one has the CL11. If the picture (new one) is correct, then is OK.

If it is the 1600MHz Cl11, then it is fine.

Kington is good. Get it. ConnorBazinga January 31, 2013 2:45:50 PM is the corsair worth the extra £7? cin19 a c 80 } Memory January 31, 2013 4:15:43 PM Sorry, I just check the model # for the kingston KVR16R11D4/8I that is the ECC RAM, and you can't use on the PC. Sorry, again. You are better get the one 1600MHz and CL11 to match the old one. But the corsair is ok because it has the CL10. cin19 a c 80 } Memory January 31, 2013 4:29:17 PM I can't find more RAM to match your old one, and you can get those; http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-Technology-KHX16C10B1B... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Vengeance-Performance-M...
