    Default about kingston ram

    Hello i want to upgrade my ram.
    i have right now installed kingston triple channel rams 6gb 1600 mhz 7-8-7-20(i have them on xmp) but actualy this is the manurfacter prices, the only thing the xmp changes is the 20 makes it 23.
    if i buy kingston rams 1600 mhz it must be the same ? or i can instal for example 4GB + 4GB + 4Gb kingston 1600 mhz cl9 and make all timings manual for example 8-8-8-24 or any suggection from you guys
    i need some help i told you what i got right now i will show you what i can buy and tell me if its 100% correct and will work.

    here is what i find cheap and i think good. KINGSTON KHX1600C9D3K3/12GX DDR3 12GB (3X4GB) PC12800 1600MHZ HYPERX GENESIS TRIPLE CHANNEL KIT - RAM - E-SHOP.GR AND KINGSTON KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX DDR3 6GB (3X2GB) PC12800 1600MHZ HYPERX GENESIS TRIPLE CHANNEL KIT - RAM - E-SHOP.GR

    so if i choose the first 12 gb i will have 18 gb of ram because now i have installed 6 gb. if install the second 6 gb i will have 12.

    i hope you can help me thanks.


    my system specs are :

    intel i7 960
    psu akasa 1000w
    gpu gigabyte gtx 480

    right now i have installed kingston 1600mhz 7-8-7-20 manurfacter timings, but i set them to 8-8-8-20 just for test and working fine.
    the problem is i cant find the same rams i hope if i buy those with cl9 wont show as flex like the old days in older pcs :)
    i m not good with this things anyway . i will keep 6 gb for now, and i will try to find the same rams.

    You can buy 2 matching ram kits and then sell your current ram.
    This way you will minimize problems with memory stability.
