Hi you might not have a problem but best if you get them all in the same kit.

In theory, no. In real world practice, you might.

To be sure, install in matched pairs. And buy from a source that has a good return policy - just in case.

I see. I might end up buying another 4GB G.Skill Aegis than Kingston HyperX Fury. Thank you!

Will there be a problem if I will buy memory (RAM) sticks one by one? Like, for now, I will purchase another 4GB to make it a total of 12GB, then soon, another 4GB. Or buy 2 x 8GB kit?

Again, in theory, no. But in real world practice, you might.

And as I noted above, "to be sure" you should install in matched "pairs". This implies you buy each pair at the same time to ensure the two sticks are identical. Identical means the same brand, same model number and preferably they came off the same production run.

Note too most RAM makers will package dual-channel "kits" - or sticks in pairs. These are typically RAM sticks that came off the production line one after the other and therefore have the best chance of being identical. But, because they are packaged, shipped, inventoried and sold as one unit, buying two sticks in 1 "kit" is typically cheaper than buying 1 stick at a time.

So my advice is to save your money until you build up the budget to buy all at once.

Noted sir. Thank you!
