Can I have memory RAM issues if I have one slot with 8GB and another with 16GB


Recommended Posts

I currently have 8GB and I'm thinking of buying 16GB for the empty slot, but some people told me that if I'm not careful with memory balance in my RAM slots, there may be problems, slow performance or loss of usable memory. Is that true or is it a myth?

It is true.

You won't have dual channel mode, at the very least. That will significantly hurt your memory performance.
