Query with my new RGB Ram

Hi there,

 

I just got my new system and i opted to go for the Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16gb 3200 ( 2x8gb )

 

I've been looking around as i want to upgrade this to 32gb in the future but i cannot find this ram anywhere with the current model number shown on the ram.

 

The model number on the ram i have is CM4X8GD3200C16W2E. Is this even a legit model number? I have found what looks the same ram as mine on amazon but its a completely different model number, it shows CMW16GX4M2C3200C16.

 

I'm a bit confused by this.

That is an SI/OEM specific part number and they are not available for purchase via retail. Also our memory is only validated and guaranteed to work in the configuration they are packaged and sold as. Mixing two kits as you are doing can lead to compatibility issues such as prevent XMP/DOCP from enabling, system stability issues, or even prevent the computer from booting.

 

If you purchase a second kit of memory there is no guarantee it will work with your currently installed memory. Such issues like this are not covered by the warranty. If your intent is to upgrade to 32GB of memory it is our recommendation, and best practice to purchase a single kit at the capacity and speed you wish to have that is listed as compatible on your motherboard memory QVL.

Hi there,

Can i just clarify that there is no ram mixing at the moment. I purchased a computer that was built for me, The ram installed has those model numbers on.

I want to purchase another 16GB of this ram, obviously it'll be retail so wondering if buying the same would then have issues if the ram is same speed etc?
