Hello all!



So I just made a new PC build that literally took me like 100 hour+ of research to be sure everything will be ok, but I missed only a thing. I bought 16x2 gb of 3200 mhz crucial ballistix but I did not know that it is recommended to buy ram as kit and I bought two separate sticks of 16 gb ram because it was a little cheaper and I did not know that it can be differences. PC is working fine, no problem, but I see a lot of people recommending getting ram as kit. So my question is if I should have bought them as a kit(or try to replace them now) or it is ok this way because in an event of a stick failure I can send only that stick for warranty and not the whole kit so I can still run my PC. I know that in an event like this I will have to then ask for a refund of that broken stick and buy a kit because the new one will not likely be the same but then I will have a new kit and a spare stick for this kind of events. And from what you guys know, how likely is that ram will fail, I mean if it's like the most likely component that usually fail.



Thank you for you time!

If everything is working right, you are in luck. Ram rarely breaks unless you do something wrong to it,
