Hello Everyone,

Can you guys tell me mixing these two RAMs will work together without any problems?

1. Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 3000MHz (16x1 single stick)
Latency = 16-20-20-38
Voltage = 1.35v
(I already have this)

2. Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB 3000MHz (32x1 single stick)
Latency = 16-20-20-38
Voltage = 1.35v
(Going to buy this)

Motherboard = MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC
CPU = Core i7 9700K

Both Mobo and CPU support up to 128GB RAM.
The only difference of the sticks is capacity. (16GB and32GB)

Will they work perfectly without any errors?

Thank you,
Have a nice day!

No, only you can tell us after you try and test the modules.

unknown, mixing RAM modules is a gamble, there are three usual outcomes.
First, it works flawlessly. possible but really rare
second, it works but has issues, reboots, stability issues and other gremlins. the most likely scenario. depending on how much tinkering and testing you do you MIGHT get them stable.
Thirdly, they will not even boot together.

I suggest replacing all your RAM with a matched set in the wanted capacity.
Matched sets are matched, paired and tested to work together at the factory. finding a match from random samples is unlikely and time consuming.
