So I found out that my Hyper Black 8gb 4x2 1600MHz ddr3 KHX16C9B1B/4 has been discontinued by Kingston, but as per their website it says that my RAM has been replaced with HyperX Fury 8gb 4x2 1600MHz ddr3 HX316C10FB/4.

If I buy another 8gb (2x4gb), will this work since as per Kingston the HyperX Fury is their replacement RAM for my Hyper Black.

It would be best just to buy a whole new kit of RAM instead of mixing at all, when you mix RAM modules, you can get blue screens and lots of problems.

If you buy a completely new kit of DDR3 RAM then yes it will work no issues, mixing RAM is a very bad idea.

Quite confusing though since he posted Black model picture yet on his title it says Blue. Not sure which one is true.

I hope he speaks english so I can check with him.

Thanks though.
