Hi folks,

I am novice but looking to upgrade the RAM in my 4yr old rig (specs below).

I currently have 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3/1866mhz Kingston HyperX Fury. I was hoping to upgrade to 16GB using two 8GB sticks. Is this possible with my MoBo/CPU? If so can anyone give any suitable recommendations please?

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks Jay32267.

I understand it is best not to mix kits so I am thinking of replacing my current 2x4GB kit with these HyperX Fury 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR3 SDRAM (p/n HX318C10FWK2/16). However I can't see these sticks listed in the spec sheet you kindly attached - does this matter? From everything else I read on the spec sheet they should work but i wonder why they are not listed?

Thanks again
