With paired memory do I have to match revision numbers too?


Recommended Posts

I have two sticks CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 ( 2 X 4GIG)


I'm looking at getting another pair of 2 x 4 gig - (same numbers) for a system total of 16 gigs, but I'm wondering if the revision numbers have to be the same?


I haven't gotten into mine to look yet, but I doubt they are the same.


The tech support website has left me high and dry, so I hope they read this.


Edit: Existing memory is ver 8.11

the memory I may buy is ver 3.19

There are no guarantees unless you buy the entire 16GB as a matched kit. With experience, patience, and a little luck, sometimes mixed kits can be run together. However, the different version number suggests it is almost certainly from a different batch of semi-conductor material and possibly from a different supplier. You would be setting yourself up for disappointment. If you expect your memory to be plug and play, this is not the way to go.
