    The only rules for mixing RAM is that it is best avoided. In theory any combination of compatible RAM modules should work but things don't always work that way in the real world. Any difference in module size, specifications, or even manufacturer can cause problems. Even modules from the same manufacturer with identical specs but bought at different times have been known to cause problems.

    Mixing differing RAM modules can cause a variety of problems, including a BSOD. The results are unpredictable.
    Difference between 2N and 2T RAM? I don't know.

    theres a good chance it will. but theres also a chance youll run into issues. dual channel probably wont work regardless so best outcome is that it works but in singal channel.

    As far as I can find 1N or 1T are the same thing said in a different way.
    1N= 1T
    2N=2T.

    You keep asking the same question.
    The answer is the same.
    It's not recommend mixing ram modules, period...

    It's your computer so you can do as you please.
    Same brand.
    Same exact specs.
    Bought as a kit if possible.
