Hi All,
Before I did some research, I bought for my EliteMini HX90 the below RAM:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08W2JV9R9

Only later I understood it can only be used on supported XMP, which is not my case.
Still, what will happens if I'll install it in addition to what I bought later:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08LQG2SDS

Will it works? does it matter if one is CL22 and the other CL16? and the most important question, is it risky to use if non XMP support?

So you're buying a 2x8gb module? or buying one module of 3200mhz CL22 and he built in is 3200mhz cl16, and planning to mix it? 3200mhz CL22 is jedec standard, usually if a higher cl ram is used withh lower cl ram, it will go to the highest CL ram in the matching frequency.

EliteMini HX90 has 2 sodimm ram slots.
G.Skill Ripjaws is 2 modules (2x8GB).
TEAMGROUP T-Force Zeus is single module 16GB).

You can't install 3 ram modules into EliteMini HX90.
It is not recommended to mix ram modules from different ram kits.

Tnx. I won’t mix them for now…
