  • Memory upgrade: compatibility

    Hello

    I have this:

    G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 2133 PC3-17000 8GB 2x4GB CL11

    I don't find this model so if I want to upgrade to 18gb could I mix them with these ones?:

    G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600 PC3-12800 8GB 2x4GB CL9

    Or will I have instability problems?. Maybe should I buy 2x8gb instead and remove the old ones?

    Thanks

    Only way to know for certain is to test them. Since we did not test them, we can not guarantee they can work together.

    It is best to remove the old RAM and replace them with a new matching set for guaranteed performance.
