Joaquin8911 Posted February 11, 2013 Share Posted February 11, 2013 I'll be using a Gigabyte GA-x79-UP4 motherboard and I bought Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz RAM. So I bought these two sticks before doing some research because I assumed I could just go and buy RAM and mix it as long as it was the same bus speed, I was thinking about upgrading a little later down the road to 32GB and then to 64GB, but I started to read about RAM and compatibility and even though many people say that you can mix RAM as long as it has the same specs, it seems that's not always the case. So I don't know what to do now, am I going to have issues even if my sticks are the same model? I got Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10 1600MHz 10-10-10-27 1.50V ver2.21 and from their serial number, they came in the same lot (If that makes things better). Can I buy a 2x8GB kit to go quad channel? Or should I just try to run these two together and buy a 32Gb or 64GB kit later and discard these two 1x8GB? Or worst case scenario. Do I have to discard these two and get a matching kit? I just don't want to have any compatibility issue. If you are wondering why I haven't tested them, that's because I haven't bought my case and CPU, so that's why I'm asking this as I would like to have everything as perfect as possible by this weekend.
