Hi,

I bought my PC 3 years ago pre-build, they installed 8GB RAM but instead of it being a dual-channel 2x4GB, a single 1x8GB RAM stick was installed.

I am looking to install another 8GB stick to enable dual channeled RAM.

My current RAM stick is a 8GB Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance LP (1x8GB) - http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/vengeance-low-profile-16gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cml16gx3m2a1600c10


I am struggling to find a place to buy another single stick of the same RAM, but I did find this.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CML8GX3M1A1600C10-Vengeance-Profile-Performance/dp/B008E3M4TU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1477175818&sr=8-4&keywords=8GB%2BCorsair%2B1600mhz%2BVengeance&th=1

I am pretty sure it is exactly the same RAM but buying only the 1x8GB stick shows the model number as: CML8GX3M1A1600C10

While the stick I have has a model number: CML16GX3M2A1600C10.


Would these two sticks be compatible with each other?


Thank you for your time!

Unless it's the same revision (3.23 in your case) it may well be entirely different.

...rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual. -- Thomas Jefferson
