Best way to expend from 2x4GB wonder ram?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently running 2x4GB wonder ram but I'm looking to expand it to 16GB. Normally I would just get another pair but now the samsung is discontinued.

So, should I just add in another pair of 1600(or faster) from some other brand? How bad is mixing two different brand? I know it should work @ stock speed but how about a little OC? Will it just capped to the slower pair or will I run into other problems?

If you don't overclock, then mixing with another dual-sided kit shouldn't normally cause any problems.
If you do, you might as well want to search for a similar set or a pair of M378B5273DH0 OEM modules.

I added 2 more sticks to my rig and it really screwed things up for my OC and was having a hell of a time getting them stable above stock clocks. I have since pulled them back out and after 3 days I have my prior OC back to normal.


Someone is selling a set in the Marketplace..
