Long story short, there is a sale on amazon for RAM and im getting for cheaper than other options
so will this work properly?
im attaching my cpu-z image of RAM.
The ram i want to buy is : https://www.amazon.in/Kingston-Technology-HyperX-2666MHz-HX426S15IB2/dp/B01N7K4CEU

CPU Z Image link(cuz for some reason it would not take the link.)

The CAS latency of this ram and already existing ram is same. only difference is clock speeds, my original ram has speed of 2133(it is soldered, cant be removed).
just want to confirm before i buy

Thanks = )

You should buy the same speed 2133MHz and CL 15 like the RAM on your laptop.
What's the model of your laptop?
i have Lenovo ideapad 310 15-isk.
and i did find the similar specs ram module, but its more than double the price, its too from kingston

https://www.amazon.in/Kingston-ValueRAM-KVR21S15S8-2133MHz-Non-ECC/dp/B01CK7LIRE
here is the link.

i've heard that different speed ram work together in most scenarios, its just that ram with higher clock will run slower to match the speed of slower ram.

There are dozens of brands you might not have heard of but the RAM chips are usually manufactured by either Micron (Crucial), Samsung, and Hynix.
well i did a bit of not too in depth research, they do claim that they use hynix,micron and samsung chips
well thanks im buying it
if it feels that its not good, i can always return it within 10 days. so thanks,
marking the link you shared as the answer! once again thanks for your time.

In this case is not about performance but combability.
RAM modules with different cas latency or different speeds might not work together.
So i contacted lenovo support yesterday, to ask if they recommend any specification for ram, the guy just said it should work with any ram module with max speed of 2133/2400 mhz.

That's great, you could get the less expensive 2400MHz.
In that case the faster RAM would clocked down to 2133MHz to work together with the RAM already in the system.

Mate I have one last question.
does cas latency need to be same as i go for 2400 mhz ram?
or its okay if its different.
