I have an Asus P6X58D premium m/b with 6gb ram (3*2 corsair tr3x6g1333c9 (ver2.1)). Im wanting to increase to 12gb do I need to buy another 6gb exactly the same or will any do with same spec?

It's better to have the same because all secondary timings will be the same, however when buying 2 different kits, the production date isn't the same and the module can still differ (but it's more unlikely vs random other ram)

DDR3 have maybe 40-50 differents timing and they should be all the same, you can get it to work for sure but it'll run at the slowest speed of the 2 kits...

PS: also getting the same looks cleaner in your build...

Thanks for this, I thought I was right but just needed reassurance?
