Hi there people, I came here to clarify a couple of doubts I have about Ram copatibility that I am sure are very basic.
I bought a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 mobo and while checking the Memory QVL on their website I saw that they have not listed 8gb individual sticks of ram.
They provide the Module P/N of 2x4gb and 2x2gb ram packages.
I have learn that the Module P/N number has to be very respected to secure the compatibility, but when I for example look for the 2x4gb ram package specs on a different package (1x8gb), the Module P/N changes slightly and it is not found on my mobo's QVL.
So that's one of my questions: Is there a problem if I choose the 1x8gb package even thought the serial number varies slightly???
I already bought a 2x4gb ram package because I did not think that in order to take full advantage of ram slots capacity (get to 32gb) I have to use 1x8gb sticks.
So now that I have 2x4gb ram in my system, is it possible to use the other 2 empty slots and use a 2x8gb package in order to have 24gb in my system??
of course making sure they are the same specs..
no conflicts if I do that???
Thanks a lot and please develop a little if you want
and sorry for my strange english
