Hello everyone,

I have 8GB(4x2) Dual Channel Already installed currently in my motherboard which has 4 memory stick slots. My query is regarding adding another 16GB Dual channel (8*2) to the remaining memory slots. Would that work? I'm a complete noob and looking to upgrade my ram as 8GB now feels sluggish under load. Would appreciate your help. Thanks.

mixing ram sticks is always a 50/50 crap shoot. you can always try it, if it causes issues then pull the 2x4GB kit out and run the 2x8GB kit by itself.
Ohh! Would it automatically reduce the frequency? Can it permanently damage my other component? Asking it because I want to keep the machine running for now as I have kept my expenses very low in this pandemic.
