2 kits: 2x8GB for a total of 32GB RAM

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What's the deal on buying two seperate kits of the same type of ram. I remeber that the rule of thumb was to always buy a single kit with the desired amount of memory.

At the moment I've completely maxed out my ESXi install which is running 4x4GB. I only have 4 slots so I'm going to have to upgrade the sticks. The place I buy from has some Corsair Dominator 16GB kits 30% off
These: www.corsair.com/en/dominatorr-with-dhx-pro-connector-1-5v-16gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmp16gx3m2a1600c10.html

I figured buying 2 should't cause any problems, but I'd figure i'd ask, just in case wink.gif

If you buy separate kits, they aren't binned together, so they may not all show the same clocking potential, but other than that they should work fine together if they are the same kits thumb.gif
