Ohh. So, that does it, yeah? Sorry for asking again. Screenshots is saying the Megahertz compatibility as true I guess?

I can put RAMS of different frequencies together, right?

My brand of RAM is Matrex. Yuck. I couldn't find that brand on Amazon. But it's been running nicely for more than 5 years in my PC.

Weird thing is frequency is written as something else on the sticker

Normally I'd say no you can't mix ram
I'd count on buying two sticks :)
And quite a few cans of compressed air

The thinig is, your old stick is running at 1333 MHz and the one you ordered is 1866 MHz, your memory will only run at the slower speed, in your case 1333.

Some day get another stick of 1866, same make and model.

Mike is correct, you should have gotten a 2 x 4 GB kit of new memory.
