Crossing Memory brands okay?


#1

At the moment i have 8gb of Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary Edition Memory where they no longer make / i Can not buy them in my country anymore.

So if i find a 8gb Set with the same speeds and specs everything should work normally as Brands shouldnt effect anything as i will be using the same speeds?

when ram kits are manufactured the sticks in a set are verified to work with each other

adding more ram regardless of the source poses the inherent risk of potential malfunctions and errors

I have successfully crossed memory brands multiple times. I have seen people recently mention that there are problems doing this but I would love to see numbers on how successful people are in doing what you ask. I don’t think anyone is going to provide those numbers though. LOL!
