Can i buy a 8gb ram but in two quantities instead of a 16gb kit.
Yes but they are still mixed. RAM is only guaranteed compatibility in the same packs, regardless as to the make / model / speed etc. Aligning these just minimise the risk, but don't eliminate it.Means sir the ram with same speed and other configurations but in two quantities.
Their no 100% answer should work, might not work, might be able to change some setting and make it work, might not even be made with the same parts.Means sir the ram with same speed and other configurations but in two quantities.
As a 16gb kit is out of my budget.
But sir if I bought it with same configurations.Yes but they are still mixed. RAM is only guaranteed compatibility in the same packs, regardless as to the make / model / speed etc. Aligning these just minimise the risk, but don't eliminate it.
Don't get me wrong, you can do it, and many people do ,and quite often, there isn't an issue. But it's also perfectly possible to plug them in and them not work correctly or with one another.
Even mixing RAM of the exact same make and model but bought separately can have issues. Often it works ok but there is no guarantee. Only RAM bought in a matched kit is guaranteed to work without issues. There is no other answer. If you want 16Gb then it’s recommended to buy a 2x8gb kit and not 2 individual 1x8gb.But sir if I bought it with same configurations.
You want either 2x4gb or 2x8gb. 2 sticks allows you to run dual channel. 4 sticks in most systems will still run dual channel but can have difficulty running at higher speeds. What are you using the pc for and what is the rest of the pc spec?Or should I go for a single channel 8gb or 16gb or 4×2gb kit
Doesn't make a difference. Ram is made from sheets of silicon. Each sheet is unique, it has different / different levels of impurities from another sheet. This greatly affects the 40+ Secondary and Tertiary timings you don't see.But friends please tell me would taking 2 rams of same speed and configurations but 2 quantities would not cause any problems or would not at all run.
The smallest chip for DDR4 is 512Mb. That's chip, not DIMM. For DDR4, that requires 4x chips, minimum per DIMM, so the cheapest and smallest possible size would be 2Gb. If that's what you really have, 4x 2Gb, you have the cheapest built ram on the planet, in the worst possible configuration and thats not good for Any kind of performance.4×2gb 2666 mhz
